The Kirkwood Community College baseball team played a dozen games in Florida over spring break winning nine and losing three.

Head Coach Todd Rima stated, “We are still looking to put all the pieces together.  I would like to see us have pitching defense and offense all click for one game. This year I have seen one show up one game, the other in a different game and another in yet a different game, just never all at once.”

He added, “This team has the ability to do that. They work hard, always trying to get better.”

The team’s strength this year should be pitching, according to Rima. He also stated his offensive leader so far this year has been Bryce Grimm who is the starting center fielder for the Eagles.  The pitching has been led by Nick Drahozal.

Grimm is a former Xavier High School standout and Drahozal is also a local player from Cedar Rapids.  “It is very pleasing to see the two local kids be such great leaders and do well,” said Rima.

When reflecting on how the team might perform this season Rima raised his brow and said, “It is a brutal region this year. So many teams have gotten better. Des Moines Area Community College will be tough, North Iowa Area Community College will be good, Iowa Central Community College is a lot better, add South Eastern Community College and Kirkwood Community College in the mix and it is wide open.”
