LYNNVILLE — While still having unfinished business in 2023, Tecumseh High School senior Dax Bailey fulfilled one lifelong dream earlier this month when he signed with Oakland City University to continue his baseball career following his senior season with the Braves.

“I first heard from Coach (Andy) Lasher after the semistate game I pitched in (June 11, 2022, against Shakamak at Jasper’s Ruxer Field),” said Bailey, “and our pitching coach Tristan Cummings played for him at Oakland City. Tristan was kind of the messenger.”
