First Team[edit]

On the last day of the 2009–10 Bundesliga season, Baumann made his senior team debut in a 3-1 home victory over Borussia Dortmund.[citation needed] From there he has never looked back as he became the SC Freiburg first-choice goalkeeper from the 2010-11 season onwards, where he made 30 appearances in the Bundesliga;[citation needed] even getting one assist.[citation needed] In the following two seasons, 2011-12 and 2012-13, Baumann made a total of 73 appearances for the Freiburg first-team, 67 of those in the league.

In the 2013-14 season he continued to be the mainstay of the Freiburg line-up, starting all of the clubs first six Bundesliga fixtures, as well as starting Freiburg's opening UEFA Europa League and DFB-Pokal matches.In a match against Hamburger SV, Baumann made three crucial errors that led to a 3-0 loss to Hamburger SV[citation needed] On 24 September 2013, Baumann signed a new-contract at the club; although details of the contract were not disclosed.[2]

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim[edit]

On 14 May 2014, Baumann joined 1899 Hoffenheim on a four-year contract.[3]

International career[edit]

Baumann is yet to make his senior team debut for Germany, but has made at least one appearance for all of the nations youth sides from Under-18 level to Under-21 level.[citation needed] He made his one and only Germany U-18 appearance in a 2-3 home friendly defeat to the Republic of Ireland Under-18 side.

All four of Baumann's Under-19 appearances came in friendlies, most notable was a 5-0 home win against the Estonia U-19 side.[citation needed] After then making two appearances for Germany's U-20 side against the Switzerland Under-20s and Italy Under-20s, he made the step up to Under-21 level.

For the 2010-11 season, Baumann made four Germany U-21 friendly appearances, conceding six goals during those matches.[citation needed] Since that season, he has made just five Under-21 appearances in three seasons,[citation needed] mainly due to Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno being coach Rainer Adrion's (now Horst Hrubesch's) first choice.
