Centreville’s varsity baseball team has had to deal with several key injuries at different points this season and the loss of a handful of very productive players to graduation last summer, but the third-ranked Bulldogs (Division 4) have still managed to put together a 13-2 record so far this year.
Reliable senior Collin Kirby, our Meyers Automotive Service Baseball Player of the Week for St. Joseph County, has helped make that possible.
Kirby and the Bulldogs swept Parchment Saturday, 11-1 and 4-3. He had a single in each game and drove in a run in the opener. Earlier in the week in a BCS split versus Bronson, Kirby doubled in Centreville’s 6-2 victory. And in a St. Joseph County first-round tournament victory over Burr Oak, he went 3-for-4 with one RBI.
The outfielder leads the team with a .382 batting average this year. According to the program’s official cumulative statistics, he has a team-high 13 hits and he has produced five RBIs. His on-base percentage of .523 is also the best on the team. Kirby has walked 10 times this year.
