ST. CLOUD — Next week is a big week for St. Cloud State University baseball player Kent Koch.

On Monday the senior captain and 2nd baseman starts practice for the upcoming season.  And on Tuesday he gets sworn-in as the mayor of his hometown of Loretto.

Koch ran unopposed for the two-year term, and won the job in November.

He has three credits left to graduate from SCSU, and says his finance major will come in handy in his new job.

Koch says he’s interested in local government, and as of right now he has no interest in running for a higher office in the future.  Loretto is a town of about 600 people in the western Twin Cities suburbs.

Last season he played in 43 games, with 29 starts — he batted .333 for the season.
