It was a roller coaster year for the Salem Baseball team, but at the helm of the choppy waters were 2 Seniors who led by example and with passion.
The first highlight of these seniors is a multi-sport athlete who went from PTO to FTB and is the first to hold the oar when the ship needs to be redirected. Jake Maenz has a knack for the base knock. In fact, this year, Jake hit .379 with an OBP of .532, so to say he’s the leadoff hitter of all leadoff hitters an understatement.
Though, through it all, Jake has exemplified leadership and has helped the Salem Quaker athletic programs take steps toward the future, not only by bridging the gap between past and future but being relevant in the present.
We caught up with Jake after a game against Carrolton and discussed his path in this week’s Salem Player Profile: A YOUNG MAENZ JOURNEY.
