Amaya works his way into Tecumseh baseball starting lineup

TECUMSEH — For his first three years in high school, Jayden Amaya spent his springs preparing for football and basketball.

The senior hadn’t touched a baseball since eighth grade, but he wanted to play one more season before graduating and his playing days were over.

“It’s my senior season and I just wanted to play one more,” Amaya said.

Having been away from the game for three years, he knew his job for the team would be to come off the bench as a role player.

“We had a conversation at the beginning of the season,” said head coach Tom Bullinger. “I asked him if he could handle not playing a whole lot.”

For most of the season, Amaya had been coming in off the bench and he did so in a big spot earlier in the season against Adrian.
