Delgado producing at two sports this spring

BALDWIN  — Issac Delgado has had a busy spring with Baldwin sports.

But it’s been a very productive spring.

Delgado ran track for the Panthers and is also on the Baldwin baseball team, which will play Friday at Custer-Mason County Eastern in Division 4 district play.

A junior, Delgado is a transfer and said he’s had a strong season at shortstop.

“I’ve played there for three years and the other years were outfield,” he said.

But shortstop is Delgado’s No. 1 love.

“You get most of the baseballs coming toward you,” Delgado said, adding that his strength at the position are “my quickness and awareness.”

Delgado also likes the way he’s attacking the ball as a contact hitter. “Just need to keep my eye on the ball,” Delgado said.

The Panthers’ have been focusing on the district tournament all season.

“We can improve on our outfielding a little more,” Delgado said.

His track season ended last week in  West Michigan D League meet.

“I went to the long jump finals but I didn’t place,” Delgado said. “At first we started off slow, but then we got better at running.”

He was also in the 100, 200 and 4x100 relay.

Track and baseball worked out fine.

“I’ve been able to do both,” said Delgado, also a basketball player last winter for the Panthers.
