Dalton Knightley, a Senior standout for the Pirate baseball team, signed his intent to continue his athletic and academic careers at Mid Michigan Community College after graduation this Spring.
Coach Cortez said, “Dalton is a really great young man. I’ve known him along time and he has always has the “work harder” mentality. He’s the guy running poles and hills on our off days. He’s the first guy to pick up a down teammate and the last guy to leave the practice field. Dalton is a force in the middle of our lineup and has been a starter on varsity since his sopomore season. Love this kid and we’re all super proud of him. Mid Michigan is getting a great player and even better person! Congrats Dalt on achieving your goal of playing college baseball.”
Dalton’s favorite Pirate baseball memory was a pair of wins against Adrian last spring where he hit two homeruns to help propel his team to victory. Congratulations Dalton! We are looking forward to watching you lead the Pirates for one more season before joining the Lakers!
