Former Duluth Marshall product Peter Hansen of Superior has signed with the Duluth Huskies to play summer baseball in the Northwoods League in 2021, the team announced Wednesday.

Hansen, a shortstop for Bradley University in Peoria, Illinois, played baseball and hockey at Marshall.

The Hilltoppers had great success on the baseball diamond during Hansen’s tenure, advancing to three straight Minnesota Class AA state tournaments. They finished fourth in 2017, runner-up in 2018 and finally winning the title in 2019.

Hansen, the son of former Wisconsin-Superior baseball player Ronald Hansen, played in seven games for the Bradley Braves in the coronavirus-shortened 2020 season, batting .316 with two RBIs and four walks.
