Salina Area Baseball Players to Watch 

Brandon Malm – Smoky Valley 

Brandon Malm is a senior, and a solid hitter who will player wherever we need him.

Bryant Banks – Southeast of Saline 

Banks plays pitcher and third base. He has good power, strong player, and has signed to play at Kansas City Kansas Community College.

Caden Kickhaefer – Salina Central 

Expect good things from Kickaefer and the Mustangs this season. 

Dylan Rinker – McPherson 

Dylan was the starting quarterback on a highly successful football team and will be the only senior for the Bullpups baseball team. He prides himself on doing things the right way and doesn’t cut corners. He will be one of the top pitchers for the Bullpups and play first base when not pitching.

Chase Parker – Concordia 

Chase is going to be our No.1 pitcher and has been since he was a sophomore. He is long and has huge potential. He would have been our No.1 last year but COVID-19 erased his junior season which hurt his chances in breaking some career records. We’ve had some great No.1 pitchers go on to pitch at the collegiate level. 

Wyatt Falco – Moundridge 

Wyatt is our senior, will likely be voted as one of our captains, and has had a good career here at Moundridge. He will be heading to Bethany next year to play for the Swedes.
