SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WNDU) - The St. Joe Indians are gearing up for regionals this weekend.

First year head coach John Smolinski has 10 seniors on the roster he relies on for leadership.

One of the seniors who is the glue who keeps the team together is Bryce Lesher.

“Bryce is a veteran,” Smolinski said. “He’s been here the longest of all of my players on this team. He’s got so much energy. He brings it every day. I am so proud of him.”

Whether something good or bad happens, Lesher always has a smile on his face.

“[He’s] always positive,” St. Joe senior infielder Keagan Frick said. “He’s been a great senior leader this entire year and I can’t thank him enough for carrying this team and helping us to a sectional championship.”

Lesher keeps the team smiling especially when he steals a base. Speed kills. He’s stolen three bases this season.

Lesher likes to keep it light and have fun because he says that how baseball should be played.

“You never know when it is your last day,” Lesher said. “You never know when you are done playing baseball. Gotta play as hard as you can every day. Always have fun, keep the game loose.”

Lesher and the Indians have a big weekend ahead. St. Joe will match up with the No. 1 team in the state, Hanover Central in the Griffith Regional on Saturday.

First pitch is at noon.

Lesher will play college baseball at Lake Michigan College.
