“had an outstanding season, we had a lot of individual and team records set.  I am most proud of the teamwork that the guys used to win a record amount of OTC baseball games,” said head coach Ryan Hendrickson. “We didn’t win off of home runs or overpowering pitching, we won off of team offense and team defense. At any point of any game our guys were competing with everything they had and were truly fun to watch and coach. Our seniors had a great year.  To Hunter, Tyson, Jayden and Garrett we wish you well, we thank you for your commitment, dedication and leadership throughout the years; you are always welcome back in any manner for OTC baseball. 

Hendrickson went on to thank the communities for their support of the baseball team this season.

  “Thank you Otter Tail Central communities for all of your support, this was one heck of a ride. I am excited to see what the summer seasons bring us in preparation for next season,” he said.
