The Cedar Springs Red Hawk varsity baseball team tied the school record for wins this season with 23.  They finished 4th in the OK Gold Conference, which gave them four all conference nominations.  

Aiden Brunin: Senior

Aiden Brunin

Brunin batted lead off this season. He had 110 at bats and a 427 average. His 47 hits included 9 doubles and 3 triples. He scored 42 runs and led the team with 27 stolen bases. He will attend Grand Rapids Community College this fall and play for Coach Mike Eddington. Though he was primarily a shortstop for the Red Hawks, Aiden will likely see playing time all over the field at the collegiate level. Brunin was OK Gold All Conference, and District 9 All District as a short stop.  He will also play in the John Bos all-star game this week.

Braydon Gregory

Braydon Gregory: Junior

Gregory batted in the 3-hole all season. He had 97 at bats, totaling 36 hits. He was an extra base hit specialist with 12 doubles, 4 triples and a pair of homeruns. He led the team with 33 runs batted in, playing first base and designated hitter. Gregory was OK Gold All Conference, and District 9 All District as a first baseman.

Parker Vaughn: Sophomore

Parker Vaughn

Vaughn was the cleanup hitter for the Red Hawks this season, playing third and first base, along with outfield. He also pitched. He had 36 hits in his 95 at bats. He hit 11 doubles and one triple while driving in 21. He was named OK Gold All Conference as a third baseman

Clay Oosting: Junior

Clay Oosting

Oosting led the often-injured Red Hawk pitching staff with 52 innings. He struck out 54 and walked 18, totaling a 2.006 ERA. With a record of 6-3 with one save, Clay was very deserving of his OK Gold Conference Honorable Mention award.  

Cayden Steinebach: Senior

Cayden Steinebach

Cayden was the Cedar Springs High School Valedictorian for the class of 2022. He was named to the Michigan All State Academic Team with his GPA of 4.492.

Cayden ran cross country in the fall, pole vaulted for the track team when his schedule allowed it and was in the starting rotation on the Red Hawk pitching staff.  He tossed 54 innings and totaled a 7-3 record, while striking out 31 and walking only 11. His ERA of 3.457 wasn’t quite enough to get an all conference nod, but Steinebach was solid on the mound.  He managed to shut down several powerhouse teams this year, including throwing a 1-hitter against Forest Hills Northern in the District final. Cayden will attend Grand Valley this fall and major in Biomedical Sciences with an emphasis on pharmacy.  He plans to transfer to Ferris State University to pursue a graduate degree in pharmaceutical research in the hopes to find cures to many diseases and viruses we face today.

Having graduated only 3 seniors, the future of the program looks strong.  According to Coach Glyshaw, “If we can stay healthy, we have the talent to be one of the best teams Cedar Springs has seen in decades. I look forward to helping these boys develop and accomplish all they can on the field. The sky’s the limit for what this group has the potential to achieve.”
