Youth and B teamsEdit
Oliver Baumann joined SC Freiburg's youth team in 2002, since then he has gone on to make 104 Bundesliga appearances for the club. He made his youth team debut for Freiburg on 2 September 2007 at the age of 19. Two years later he made his first appearance for Freiburg's second string side SC Freiburg ll in the Regionalliga Süd against Stuttgarter Kickers, keeping a clean sheet in a 0–0 draw. He went on to make another 21 appearances for Freiburg ll.
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. He became the SC Freiburg first-choice goalkeeper from the 2010–11 season onwards, where he made 30 appearances in the Bundesliga. In June 2011, he extended his contract until 2015. 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 club's first six Bundesliga fixtures, as well as starting Freiburg's opening UEFA Europa League and DFB-Pokal matches. In a match against Hamburg SV, Baumann made three crucial errors that led to a 3–0 loss to Hamburger SV. Despite his poor performance, he started the following game against Nürnberg and kept a clean sheet to help Freiburg achieve its first win of the season. On 24 September 2013, Baumann signed a new contract at the club.
TSG 1899 HoffenheimEdit
Baumann is yet to make his senior team debut for Germany, but has made at least one appearance for all of the nation's youth sides from Under-18 level to Under-21 level. 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. 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. Since that season, he has made just five Under-21 appearances in three seasons, mainly due to Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Bernd Leno being coach Rainer Adrion's (now Horst Hrubesch's) first choice.
