Reed City infielder looking forward to 2016 season
REED CITY — Gabe Miller was among the young faces for the Reed City baseball team this season that showed plenty of promise from this spring going into the 2016 campaign.
He just ended his junior season playing third or shortstop for the Coyotes.
“It’s going pretty good,” Miller said. “Defensively, we’ve been solid for the most part with a couple of errors now and then.”
A highlight for the Coyotes late in the regular season was getting two wins over Evart.
“We had our hitting on and didn’t swing at pitches out of the strike zone,” Miller said. “We kept the momentum up.”
Like most teams, the Coyotes made major strides since the beginning of the season.
Miller had a home run and some doubles during the season.
“When we win, our pitching (is effective),” Miller said. “I think my batting has gone up a little bit.”
Coach Marty Shaffer is planning on some games during the summer with returning players like Miller hoping to improve on their baseball skills.
During the offseason, Miller will be focusing on his batting with hopes of helping Reed City become a more effective hitting team for 2016.
