participating in fall ball workouts prior to his first season for the
University of Wisconsin- Whitewater Warhawks, Shortstop Mikole Pierce felt
that dreadful pop in his right elbow that no baseball player likes to feel.
He tore the ulnar collateral ligament in his elbow. He came to the
Orthopedic Institute of Wisconsin (OIW) and ultimately had this
reconstructed by Dr. William Pennington at the Midwest Orthopedic Specialty
Hospital (MOSH). He was able to get back and be a major contributor that
year. While playing summer ball the following year, Mikole felt a pain in
his other shoulder. This pain was followed by an inability to swing a bat.
After being diagnosed with a posterior labral tear in his shoulder he once
again returned to the operating room at MOSH where Dr. Pennington repaired
his posterior labrum.
Despite these career threatening injuries, Pierce has been a mainstay in the
starting lineup for UW-Whitewater in each of the last three seasons. He
currently leads the team in runs (38), runs batted in (42), doubles (13),
triples (3), home runs (8), total bases (96), walks (26), stolen bases (14)
and slugging percentage (.706). A D3baseball.com Preseason All-American,
Pierce is batting .390 for the year.
In 2014, Pierce was tabbed an All-American by both D3baseball.com and the
American Baseball Coaches Association, D3baseball.com Midwest Region Player
of the Year and WIAC Co-Position Player of the Year. He helped lead the
Warhawks to the NCAA Division III national championship, ranking among
national leaders in batting average (.435), hits (84), runs scored (62),
RBIs (64) triples (8), homers (9) and total bases (136).
Pierce was a 2013 first team All-WIAC
pick after hitting .391 with 16 doubles, six home runs and a team-best 48
When asked about his experience
at OIW and MOSH Mikole stated:
“My experience with the Orthopedic Institute of Wisconsin and Midwest
Specialty Orthopedic Hospital was a great one. It’s always a trying time
when you are dealing with injuries that need surgeries to get fixed. Not
only was I made comfortable with the procedures, but I was also beyond
confident that Dr. Pennington was going to perform a successful surgery.
It’s a scary thought that you may never be able to perform at the level that
you previously played at before the injury. The surgeries and rehab I was
put through placed me in a position to get back to the level I was at and I
continue to improve.”
