MINNEAPOLIS — Gopher baseball’s Noah Berghammer gets his reps in on a recent Wednesday afternoon. He tirelessly works on his craft. It’s a passion that’s been a big part of his life since he was 4 years old.

But he’s not on Siebert Field’s turf, in the batting cages or in the weight room. The University of Minnesota student has two keyboards, a laptop and mixing software set up in a study room in 17th Avenue Residence Hall.

“It’s kind of my release,” Berghammer said. “To get away from baseball and to get away from academics a little bit.”

His top priority, he said, is baseball. But with surgeries holding him back from seeing any real practice time in his first year on campus, he’s had enough time to work on his music and a book he’s writing, the Minnesota Daily reported.

“It’s probably been good for him to venture into that space and fill his athletic space up with some of his creative artistic space,” Gophers head coach John Anderson said about Berghammer.
