Inman’s Brant Mikulecky – Baseball Spotlight Presented By Hutchinson Community College

By Matt Browning

The desire to get back on the field has been eating at Inman’s Brant Mikulecky.

Since the day the season ended last May, Mikulecky has been counting down the days for baseball.

“I felt like we proved a lot of people wrong last year, and I know that we had more to show for ourselves but fell short,” Mikulecky said. “This year we are all stronger and faster and ready to do damage. That is why I am counting down the days till practice starts at the end of February.”

Mikulecky broke through as a pitcher last season, setting the single-season record for strikeouts, with 81. But becoming a better pitcher is what Mikulecky through strength and mechanics was his focus in the fall.

“After football ended I stopped lifting for strength and started lifting to train my legs and upper body to get as much velocity as I can,” Mikulecky said. “I am currently on a weight training program my dad made for me, and results are starting to show. The weight program involves a lot of cardio, lower body lifts, medicine ball work, and plyo ball work. I am still working on mechanics and making sure I use every part of my body in a consistent manner to get the maximum velocity I can when I pitch.”

Mikulecky has committed to play baseball at Kansas Wesleyan and plans to study Software Engineering and Information Management in the Computer Sciences department.

“I am really blessed to get this opportunity to play next-level baseball and has only made me push harder to be the best I can be,” Mikulecky said. “I plan to keep working hard. I want to be a dominating pitcher for the Coyotes.”
