Wade Diefenthaler Print E-mail
Diefenthaler earned three letters from 1957-59. He was a first team All-MAC selection as a junior and a third team district IV pick the same season. He tossed a no-hitter against MAC champ Ohio University as a junior to hand the Bobcats their only league loss, becoming the first BG pitcher to toss a no-hitter in a MAC game. Posted a 2.90 ERA as a junior, with a 3-5 record. Had a 6-2 mark as a senior with a 3.08 ERA to earn second team All-MAC accolades. Had several offers from professional teams but turned them down to begin his career in education. Taught at Old Orchard School (a junior high) in Toledo for seven years while also coaching. He then spent 10 years as a principal at Oakdale School in Toledo and one year as principal at Spring School, also in Toledo.
