Ken enjoyed the finest season of any baseball player in Rider history as a sophomore, setting team records with 64 hits, 51 runs scored, 17 homeruns, 56 runs batted in, and 131 total bases. The left-handed first baseman batted .400 and was named the Most Valuable Player of the East Coast Conference tournament. He led the Broncs to the conference title while smashing four homeruns and driving 13 runs in five tournament games. During the NCAA tournament, which followed, Kremer batted .565 with nine RBI's and six homeruns in just five games. For his efforts, he was named the NCAA Regional Championship game against Georgia. Ken was named an All-American later that spring. Declared one of the top major league prospects in the country, Ken continued to terrorize pitchers during his junior season at Rider. His .479 average won the NCAA Division I batting title and earned him All-American honors for the second consecutive year. Kremer was selected in the fourth round of Major League baseball's amateur draft and was signed by the Milwaukee Brewers organization. He left Rider with a career batting average of .384, a record that still stands. Ken's 163 career hits were second highest ever recorded at Rider, and his 26 career homeruns placed him fourth on the all-time list.
