Hawks GOLD John Baker "2016 Mr. Baseball"

Congratulations to Hawks GOLD player John Baker for being recognized at the "Top Player" in High School baseball 2016.  John Baker was awarded the Mr. Baseball award on July 6th, 2016.

John is a highly decorated player having earned 2-time MHSAA "1st Team All-State & Dream Team," for 2015 and 2016.  He also led his high school team (Hartland HS) to a MHSAA Division 1 State Championship by throwing a complete game (10 inning) 3 hit performance in the final game.  John has hit up to 97 mph on the radar gun from the mound and hits for average and power from the plate.  John received a full scholarship to Ball State University and continues to accumulate additional honors on his way to his collegiate baseball career.

It has been a pleasure to have coached John for several years of his youth baseball career up until 18U.  Congrats Johnny, you deserve it!
