Daniel Bittel has played a lot of baseball. On Friday in the Hays High cafeteria, he committed to playing on the collegiate level for William Jewell. Bittel has started for Frank Leo and the Indians since his freshman year. After taking over in center field, the now senior has never looked back.
Bittel has always wanted to play baseball past high school, but made the decision to pursue the dream full force after his sophomore season by focusing solely on baseball and no other sports. Bittel has been part of two state appearances for the Indians and was part of the summer legion team that won a state title in 2012 and played in New Orleans for the regional tournament.
Bittel says the William Jewell coaching staff have him projected as an outfielder.
At Hays High School, Bittel has scored 62 runs and is three runs from entering the top ten all-time in career runs scored.
