Wright looking to assist Reed City’s baseball team


REED CITY — Kyle Wright is looking to make major contributions in his senior season for Reed City’s baseball team.

“It’s been going all right,” he said. “We’ve been struggling.”

The Coyotes entered the week at 5-15. They play home May 23 with Chippewa Hills. Meanwhile, Wright’s been focusing on trying to play his best baseball for the Coyotes.

“I have to get the timing down,” he said. “It’s coming.”

Wright, who didn’t play baseball last spring, came out this year for his first varsity season.

He’s usually at third base where he’s played for most of his baseball life.

“I like the corners,” he said, adding that his glove has been a strength.

Wright admits his hitting has been a challenge so far.

“It’s coming with timing, it’s getting better,” he said, adding that the key, “for me is a level swing. It’s like golf too.”

Wright has played golf previously but is focusing on baseball right now.

“We just have to keep our heads up,” he said. “Sometimes we get down. We have to stay focused.”

Hitting the ball remains a key area where the Coyotes need to improve.

Wright also was a standout last fall in football and in the winter for boys basketball. He added that he hasn’t decided on a college yet and that he “might” go somewhere to play sports. Basketball would be the sport if he goes. He’s received some interest and indicated he might decide later where he’ll go.
