The payoff

Clem perseveres through knee injuries, earns top honor

(Continued)

“He was a solid performer for two years. We knew he was a good hitter and he didn’t let us down.”

Zach Shidler, SS/P, Winamac

Shidler led the 9-17 Warriors in batting average (.354), on-base percentage (.535), stolen bases (13), RBIs (17) and doubles (6). He added one home run, one triple and 11 runs scored.

On the mound the senior right-hander went 3-6 with a 4.12 ERA. He struck out 61 and walked 34 in 54 1/3 innings pitched.

“He has good baseball smarts. He’s been around for awhile and understands the game,” Winamac coach Tony Carroll said. “He’s a good player, good athlete. He was hitting a little above .400 before he went into a slump the last six games and ended up at about .350. He came on really well in his last three or four starts pitching-wise. We knew we were going to be in most games as long as he was starting. We played against some good small-school teams and were right there with them.”

Tucker Waddups, P/SS, Pioneer

The freshman right-hander had five of the Panthers’ nine wins this season. He finished with a 1.36 ERA and fanned 61 and walked just 11 in 72 innings pitched.

At the plate he led the 9-12 Panthers with a .348 batting average and .467 on-base percentage en route to earning All-Midwest Conference honors.

“He takes baseball very seriously and works very hard at it. He’s going to be a good one,” Pioneer coach Dick Farrer said. “We only had three seniors on the team this year and next year we’re just going to have a couple. We had a lot of freshmen and sophomores playing. I think things are looking pretty good in the future, and he’s going to be probably a main cog in that.

“He was our MVP. He was our No. 1 pitcher and leading hitter. Frontier beat us 4-2, and he gave up three unearned runs against Frontier. He’s going to be good; he’s just a freshman.”
