Last year as a junior, Calvin Delich’s baseball season couldn’t have gone any better.
Delich finished with a team-high .533 batting average, and also snagged a spot on the Kansas All-State first team. So, heading into the 2020 season and having already signed with Central Missouri, Delich’s expectations were high.
Delich and the Iola Mustangs were not only looking to send out head coach Mark Percy on a bang in his final ride, but also capture a second state championship in three years. Of course, neither of those happened due to the COVID-19 pandemic that has forced Kansas schools to close for the remainder of the school year.
