Roth was also happy to be joined on the team by Shidler, a three-sport standout for four years at Winamac.
“Zach was great. I know he had a lot of fun. Anytime we can get a kid on the team, that’s something special for the whole program,” he said.
Shidler enjoyed suiting up one last time with Roth at the helm. He will attend Ball State and said he’s going to try to walk on to the baseball team there.
“I’ve been so blessed to play for him the last four years,” Shidler said. “I love him to death. I’m going to miss playing for him and playing for Winamac on Friday nights, wearing the maroon and white.”
