Green City’s O’Haver Looking Forward to Senior Baseball Season

Senior Grant O’Haver has been a stalwart behind home plate for the Green City Gophers baseball team. O’Haver’s work has led to back-to-back district titles for the Gophers and a third place finish in Class 1 in 2021. He says he’s looking forward to his senior season.

O’Haver recently signed to continue his baseball career at William Woods University. He discusses his favorite aspects of being a catcher.

While O’Haver’s play as catcher is attention-grabbing, a sticker on the back of his chest protector that reads “I heart umpires” has the attention of the men in blue.

O’Haver and the Gophers open the season Tuesday at home against Pattonsburg. Green City is scheduled to play its first five games at home.
