This is the first of two Justin Olsons to pitch for the RiverHawks in 2003. Both were right-handers. This one, who pitched for the Fightin' Illini, had a brief stay in Rockford early in the 2003 season. In his final appearance, he struck out seven Kalamazoo Kings in two innings. The Twins signed him and he currently pitches for Minnesota's Class AA affiliate in New Britain of the Eastern League.
The latter Justin Olson joined the RiverHawks a few weeks later.
