Stinger star comes from humble beginnings

In a season with the Willmar Stingers contending down to the wire in the second half of the Northwoods League season, the catalyst atop the lineup has been outfielder Mitch Rowan.

The Stinger leadoff hitter's .315 batting average is the third-highest on the team and he trails only Sean Dwyer and Jason Leblebijian in games played. His 21 stolen bases also ranks third in the league.

But unlike other top players in the league, Rowan comes from humbler beginnings.
