Aaron Senne was a player on the high school team I coached from the spring of 2003 until the summer of 2006. He is one of the best high school hitters Minnesota has ever produced. Aaron was a four year varsity player. I was lucky enough to work with Aaron and watch him accumulate numerous awards in high school and watched him receive even more awards in college at the University of Missouri, where he was also a four year starter.
Aaron was either the best, or one of the best, players on every baseball field he played at from his youth baseball days until today. Aaron’s dad, Jim Senne, was the coach of Aaron’s first traveling baseball team. Aaron was only 8 years old playing on an 11 year old team. Mr. Senne told me that was the year he figured out Aaron had a special talent in baseball. Jim said that Aaron was the best hitter on that team and he was only eight years old!
In high school, Aaron’s list of accomplishments are long. Below is a list of his baseball accomplishments at Rochester Mayo High School.

Aaron turned down the Minnesota Twins in 2006 and decided to attend the University of Missouri and play baseball. After his junior season at Mizzou, he had to make another tough decision… Should he sign with the Minnesota Twins after they drafted him again or play out his senior season at Mizzou. He chose to finish his education and play one more year for the Tigers. After four years of playing baseball in the Big 12, I am pretty certain Aaron knows he made the correct decision. He was named the Big 12 Player of the Year his senior season, in 2010! Below is a list of his baseball accomplishments at at the University of Missouri.
