Central Christian College of Kansas baseball program has brought in several new players that are expected to impact the McPherson County community. These players range from all over the country and each look forward to their time in a small town atmosphere.
Patrick Medina is an incoming first baseman from Heritage High School in Palm Bay, Florida. In his senior year Medina had a .429 average, two home runs and 22 RBIs. The big freshman from the East Coast is excited about his move to the Midwest.
“The thing that I am looking forward to most about McPherson is experiencing the religious community while getting to play the game that I love most at Central,” Medina said.
Michael Martinez comes to Central Christian from Kansas City, Missouri. The incoming infielder/catcher hit .320 for Oak Park High School.
“I’m looking forward to living in a smaller town where it’s revolved around sports and the family environment that will surround myself and my teammates,” Martinez said.
Cade Isbell, from Amarillo, Texas, is another big addition to Central Christian and the McPherson Community. The 6-foot-2 infielder graduated from Tascosa High School where he batted .343 (avg) with 13 RBIs in his senior season.
I felt like I won’t just be joining a new community, but I will be joining a new family with the whole city going to be supportive of our program," Isbell said, “
The McPherson community has always been welcoming to a wide range of newcomers and these three young men are now a part of the growing community.
“I thoroughly look forward to all of the new faces that we are bringing in,” Central Christian’s head baseball coach Stephen McNett says. “It is our goal not to only impact our school, but to have outstanding young men impact McPherson in such a positive way. McPherson is a great family environment and these three young men are joining our great community.”
