Harmeier To Play Baseball At KC

FARINA - South Central graduate and Salem Senior Legion infielder Brett Harmeier will walk on to play baseball at Kaskaskia College next season.

Harmeier is a versatile athlete who was a catcher for four years in High School but also played in the infield as well.  Brett follows the path of holder brother Derek who was a standout pitcher at South Central and continued his career at KC before finishing at Eastern Illinois University.  

In a bit of irony, Brett signed five years to the day that Derek did for Mitch Koester and the Blue Devils.
