Kade Lewis, a stand-out on the Sartell-St. Stephen Sabres baseball team, was the subject of an April 12 feature story broadcast on WCCO-TV.
In 1922 and 1921, the Sabres competed in the state high-school baseball championship tournament. This season they hope to qualify and win it this time around in Class AAAA.
Sabres’ coach Jerome Nemanich was also featured in the TV news clip. He noted when hitting a ball, left-handed Lewis has a knack of hitting it anywhere in the baseball field.
Lewis is a senior third baseman for the Sabres. Last year, he hit 468, with 11 homeruns and driving in 38 runs. He was named one of the top hitters in the state and was one of just two juniors on the Minnesota Coaching Association’s AAAA All-Star Team.
Lewis is a formidable player, a left-handed hitter standing 6 feet 3 inches and weighing 215 pounds. Lewis has also played football.
Recently, Lewis announced he has made a commitment to play baseball with the Butler Bulldogs at Butler University in Indianapolis.
On Facebook, he posted these comments:
“I am beyond excited to announce my commitment to play Division 1 baseball and further my education at Butler University. I can’t thank my parents and brothers enough for their endless support. I would also like to thank my coaches and teammates who have helped me become the player I am today.”
