James Minard guide the Sandusky Redskins Baseball Team to a GTCE Division Outright Title on May 16th, 2022 at Albrecht Field in Sandusky. Thanks in large part of Tyler Franzel’s Walk-Off 2-Run Base Hit in the 7th inning with 1-out in the 1st Game. Got a 6-5 win & needed that one win anyways. Tyler is a Sophomore right now in Sandusky HS. Won the 2nd Game 1-0. Took over for Ryan Pritchett’s position as Head Coach in the off-season. Bringing back that Tradition once again now in Sandusky Baseball. Tom Lukshaitis was on hand against the Ubly Bearcats on Monday Night. His Son Greg played on the Outright GTCE Division Crown in 1999 as a Junior in HS. Best one Greg played on was in 1998 with Nick Carmen, Tom Albrecht, Troy Tank, Josh Mavis, Mike Stoliker, Mike Collier, Paul Solis, Andrew Nartker, Tony Reinke, Matt Thomson, Brandon Henderson, Jeff Tank, Riley Chapin, & other ones that where on that squad. Good bunch of them. Good Baseball Bunch. Not as good as the 1994 one James Minard played on with Jamie & Jim Franzel, Brad Bays, Randy Bolsby, Dan McIntire, Shane Strickler, Tom Mata, Keith Barnett, David Bartley, Robert Barren, Jason Ball, Jason Krause, Keith Barnett, AJ Parker, & company. 1996 was a Cinderella Run James was the Assistant Coach that season when he came home from College. Wasn’t a talent bunch & good run in the Class C State Tournament. Good 1997 & 1998 Class at Sandusky HS……… Made a difference on that Cinderella Run in 1996. Mr. Hund died with Liver Cancer in 1997 & also was 25 years ago….. He was a Legendary HS Principal at Sandusky Community Schools in 1978-97……… Cared about the students & everyone else in the Sandusky Community……. True Icon In Sandusky. James was a Mr. Hund Fan & was everyone else……… Dennis Molloy & Ted Freiburger Jr where on hand to see the Sandusky Redskins Baseball Team be 2022 GTCE Division Outright Champions on May 16th. Mat Gleason did excellent work as Baseball Coach in the 1960’s for Sandusky. Barry Ziehm in his time being there too. Retired as Baseball Coach in 2022 at Albrecht Field & lose to the Mayville Wildcats in the Division 3 District Championship Game 3-0……. Played the Game & now Coaching that sport he loves the most. Coach Tee Ball, Little League, Babe Ruth, JV, & Varsity. JV Coach in 2021 that won 19 games & so the Varsity with 19 wins apiece. Ryan Pritchett started that one 1st & James kept that trend going for more. Sandusky Baseball is back already now. His Son Caleb is a Junior in HS. One more year left to play yet. James doesn’t play favorites at all. Plays you by talent. Seeing that one on display now in Sandusky. Good supporting cast in the last 2 home games in a row. Steven Trainor was on hand seeing some good action on Thursday Night against the Brown City Green Devils. Good supporter to the Sandusky Community. Disability problem does very well with that one. Very well liked by everyone else in the Class of 1997. His Brother Dave was a standout player in the Class of 1992 for Barry Ziehm. Played with Chad Henderson, Ryan Pritchett, Junior Galvan, & company. That was Dave’s best sport in School. Won the Outright TCC Championship Trophy in 1992. Good run of the 1990’s in Sandusky. 4 good ones in the Class of 2022 James will missed a lot in the program. Josh Smith, Robbie Eschenburg, Ashton Phillips, & Martin Tovar. Good bunch coming up in the Class of 2024 & 2025 on JV right now. Good 2023 core I will cover out there in Sandusky. Bring Back Sandusky Baseball to where it needs to be at now…………. Congratulations on being the 2022 GTCE Division Baseball Outright Champions……….
