Every high school baseball coach would love to have both experienced senior pitchers and experience senior bats, but given that rarely happens, Byron Center baseball coach Jeff Gdowski would much rather have his returning senior pitchers Tyler Pols and Duncan Patterson and fellow senior catcher Reece Klocke won’t hurt either.

… Pols, a pitcher and outfielder who is committed to Grand Rapids Community College for next year, is a 4-year varsity player who earned all-conference and all-district pitcher honors in 2014. He had two no-hitters and has already thrown his first one of this season, a 10-0, 5-inning win over Comstock Park on March 31 in which he struck out 11 and walked only two. He ended last season with a 4-2 record and a 0.82 ERA while striking out 78 in 42 innings.
