Multiple Teams · Fighting Irish Baseball Update for May 9, 2019

Central Catholic Baseball Parents, Players, Supporters & Coaches,

I wanted to share with all of you some information regarding “our” program as we transition into the final segment of the 2019 Season.  Thanks for your continued support of Fighting Irish Baseball.  We hope to see you at some games the remainder of the spring season.

2019 Season

Currently the Varsity team is 15-4 and tied for 1st place of the TRAC.  We have had a few bad losses where we did not play well in the back half of the game and learned much about ourselves.  We are currently ranked 10th in the State Coaches Poll and 5th in the Prep Baseball Ohio Poll.  Polls mean very little, however our guys have worked hard to gain this respect.  We still have four big league games left, along with some very challenging non-league games.  Our first Sectional game will be Friday, May 17th vs. Wauseon @ Mercy Health Field.   We hope to see great crowds at our remaining games this eason.

2019 Reverse Raffle

Our 24th Annual CCHS Baseball Reverse Raffle will be held on Saturday, May 11th at Mercy Health Field!  Tickets remain $25, which is the same price they were when we began this great event in 1996!  Tickets may be purchased from any player or coach or e-mail Coach Mielcarek (  The doors open at 6:00 PM and the drawing begins at 7:00 PM.

Welcome the Class of 2023

Friday (May 10th) we play Archbold (3rd Ranked in the State D 3 Poll).  First pitch is scheduled for 7:00 PM.  We will have Father Matt Radar throw out the ceremonial first pitch of the game in appreciation for all that he has done during his time at Central Catholic High School.  We will also welcome the Class of 2023 who will gather at Mercy Health Field for the game and get to know each other.  Come out and lets pack Mercy Health Field!

Colin Kaucher

We are excited to announce that Colin Kaucher (’15) was named 1st Team All G-MAC catcher yesterday for his efforts again this season.  Colin has had a stellar four year career at Ohio Dominican University and we are very proud of him!

National Honor Society

We are proud of the fact that nine varsity baseball players were inducted into the National Honor Society this March.  They are Seniors Jase Bowen & Justin Schiets, Juniors Brett Bishop, CJ Buchele, Lance Haupricht, Brent Matus, Tommy Merchant & Sam Schommer as well as Sophomore Owen Kitz.  They have all set the academic bar high for the rest of our players.

E-Mail List

We realize that our current baseball e-mail list is a fraction of those out there who might like to receive our updates.  If you have other family, friends, alumni or other CCHS Baseball supporters who would like to be added to our list please e-mail me back ( with their name and e-mail address.   We would be happy to add them to our current list.

Thanks for your continued help and support of Central Catholic Fighting Irish Baseball!

Go Irish!

Coach Jeff Mielcarek
