"Brody is in his fourth year playing baseball at MSD. He has never missed a game and is always eager to play. As the team's key pitcher, he started in seven out of fourteen games, winning four of those seven games. He pitched against 160 batters, walking only three and striking out 38. Brody is the fifth batter on our batting lineup with an average of .442. He is always the first person to arrive to practice. Our coaching staff enjoyed having him on the team for the last four years." - Head Coach Chester Kuschmider
