REED CITY — It was Marty Shaffer’s first season as coach for Reed City baseball and the Coyotes will also be working this summer to get ready for the 2015 campaign. It was not quite the record Reed City wanted at 8-25. The Coyotes, like other teams, battled with poor weather in preseason and in the early part of the schedule. Shaffer, in his first coaching job, has been working to get baseball into a successful program at Reed City.
“I think we didn’t play as well as we hoped,” Shaffer said. “Overall, I thought it was positive. The kids worked hard and never gave up. Even until the last out in districts, we kept fighting.”
