Brock Baker is the definition of a Cardinal. Brock is a student athlete at Canfield high School who is surrounded by a family of past and current Cardinals. Brock’s father was a baseball player at Canfield and his brother is currently a successful track star and cross country runner at Canfield. Brock said that his father is a big reason why he is so dedicated to playing baseball.

Brock has had a long career in baseball. He said, “I have been playing baseball since I was five years old.”

Baker played most of the baseball season as a pitcher on the J.V baseball team where he had a very successful season. Brock said that he plans on having a bigger role in the upcoming baseball season where he thinks the team will be very successful.

Brock said, “We should come back even better than last year since we didn’t lose to many seniors.”

Brock works on perfecting his craft in the off season by playing in the Colt League with his brother and his dad as the coach. Brock also works on his pitching by throwing with his dad in the yard during the off season.

Brock said, “I take very hard classes in order to prepare for college.”

Brock should be seen as an inspiration to the incoming freshman because he showcases the importance of being both an athlete and focusing on academics. Brock manages to be a flourishing baseball player and cross country runner while being at the top of his class academic wise. Brock has maintained over a 3.8 GPA and got a 27 on his ACT as he plans on going to Ohio State for academics.
