Rasor enjoying senior season

REED CITY — Derrick Rasor’s senior season has been a good one for Reed City.

It’s his fourth varsity season. Coming into this year, he considered his sophomore season to be his best.  He came into the 2017 baseball season healthy from football and ready to put in a good year on the diamond.

Rasor has been among the top hitters and has hit key home runs in various games to spark the Coyotes’ attack.

Reed City ended the Central State Activities Association Gold Division season last week at 11-3 for a tie with Big Rapids.

In a late-season sweep over Central Montcalm, Rasor had a grand slam to help produce one of the wins.

He came into the season having put in some baseball work. He hit .334 as a sophomore and was looking to hit around .400 this season.

“I have to be more patient so I don’t pull it too much,” Rasor said coming into the season.

The Coyotes have gradually improved in all of Rasor’s  seasons and while no one knew what to expect coming into the spring, the Coyotes were able to enjoy the role of league champs. It was potentially the best of the four teams he played on, Rasor said, and that turned out to be the case.

“We’re good all around,” he said.

Reed City is home on Tuesday, May 30, against Morley Stanwood.
