“I don’t mind coming in whenever they need me,” said Reidy. “I tell coach, every game, I’m always here if you need me to pitch. I’m never not available. I like being able to prove myself.”
According to Burnham, Reidy has been proving himself all over the diamond this season.
“He’s probably as good a fielder as anyone else,” Burnham said. “He fields his position very well, (but) Andy has been playing first base for us when he’s not pitching and he’s done a great job over there. He’s got a good glove and he fields his position there very well. He’s played the outfield for us as well, over time, and he’s very capable there.”
Reidy is currently looking forward to proving himself again when his squad makes the trip to Newburyport on Tuesday.
“The River Rivalry is big time,” said Reidy. “Both teams have a great competition. And to be able to play a part in that is amazing. You see the most competitive games you’ll ever see in high school between these two teams. No matter what the record is, it’s all forgotten when both teams step on the field.”
Once the Clippers are out of the way, Reidy says his Indians are feeling good about the season’s second half.
“We’re feeling pretty good actually,” Reidy said of his team’s current temperature. “We didn’t really lose that many players from last year, so we’re feeling pretty good about this year. We feel like we can make the tournament. We feel we can make a run for it. We’ve got all the tools. We’ve got fielding, hitting and pitching. We just need to put it all together for one game, every day, every game.”
