166 - Joe Koshansky (Nashville 2009)
164 - Brendan Katin (Nashville 2009)

That's a whole lot of whiffs in 2007 and 2009.

Other Notes of Interset:        Kjeldgaard is originally from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Kjeldgaard spent three seasons in Helena (2 as a pitcher and 1 as a hitter).  If he would have combined his talents he could have been the Brooks Kieschniek of the Pioneer League (power hitting firstbaseman/outfielder with a lot of strikeouts and homeruns combined with so-so pitching)  His position switch is outlined here
