Of the Major League Baseball players who went to junior colleges, none are more famous than Albert Pujols, who mashed for a season at Maple Woods Community College in the Northland before the St. Louis Cardinals drafted him. Maple Woods may not produce another star as bright as Pujols, but nearly every player in the program advances to the next collegiate level or to the minor leagues. Led by head coach Marty Kilgore, the Centaurs have won their region seven of the last nine years and perennially rank in the top 25. The price of victory? Nothing. Admission to games at Maple Woods Field (the school is located on Barry Road) is free. The team's regular season begins in late February.
