Kichak having strong season for Reed City baseball
REED CITY — Quinton Kichak is heading into the final weeks of his high school baseball season, and is looking to make some key contributions for Reed City in upcoming weeks.
Kichak, a senior, is playing left field.
“Last year, I played third,” he said. “There’s a lot of action. A lot of people pull the ball.”
Kichak’s strength as an outfielder has been his speed in getting to the ball. He’s had some diving catches and feels comfortable with his ability to make me the play.
His arm “is getting stronger,” Kichak said.
It’s his second varsity season.
Last year, “wasn’t the best, but we had more of a younger team,” he said. “This year we have quite a few seniors.”
Kichak is looking at a .300 batting average for the season, similar to what he hit last season.
“I have just to keep level,” he said.
The Coyotes have been working around the .500 mark this season.
“We have a lot of strong pitchers,” Kichak said.
This week, Reed City is home with Chippewa Hills on Friday. Going after a district title is key goal, Kichak said.
“We have to work on our hitting,” Kichak said. “We hit a lot of popups. We don’t want to leave a (lot of runners) stranded.”
