REED CITY – Bryce Wein was swinging a strong bat all season for the Reed City Coyotes, and it paid off nicely for a team that won conference and district titles.

It was his senior season and he came up with some huge hits for the Coyotes. But he indicated it was not his best baseball season compared to his junior campaign.

“I had a great start of the season and then fell at the middle,” Wein said. “I’ve been sneaking back ever since. The key is being focused and keeping your eye on the ball and holding the bat correctly in your hands.”

Wein’s first hit of the season was a home run at home, making it very memorable. It was his only home run of the year and he usually hit for power.

Wein was usually the designated hitter or first baseman. His glove was golden at first base. “I got some good picks this year,” he said.

Baseball was Wein’s lone sport.

“It’s fun for me,” Wein said, adding he’s been playing it since the peewee level.

It was a memorable championship with the Coyotes Wein will remember for a long time. Strong pitching was a key factor, he added. The weather started out cold but the Coyotes seemed to thrive the warmer it got.
