Yale’s Quincy Rudd – Athlete Spotlight Presented by Indian Electric Cooperative


Yale High School varsity baseball player Quincy Rudd was a key member of the team this season. Rudd, now a senior, said the season may not have gone exactly as planned, but the team came together to wins some games and he enjoyed every minute of it. 

“What I love about my team is that we always make each other laugh,” said Rudd. “Even though we only won eight games, it was by far the best year of my four years of high school baseball.” 

Rudd and his teammates went 8-19 for the season, but grabbed big wins over Summit Christian, Liberty, Olive, Prue and others. 

“It means a lot to me to represent Yale High School. I wouldn’t want to represent any other high school,” Rudd said about being a member of the team. 

As the starting catcher, Rudd, like many of his peers, started playing baseball at an early age and his passion for the game still exists today. 

“I’ve played baseball since T-ball. I’ve never missed a year of baseball,” Rudd said. 

As a Bulldog, Rudd hopes the work and effort they put into the season will carry over into the 2020 season. 

Up next for the catcher is college. He is currently looking for a team that could use his services behind the plate. 

“I’m not sure what’s next for me. I just really want to go play ball somewhere,” Rudd said. 

When he’s not on the diamond you can usually find him in the woods somewhere or fishing a local pond. Look for Rudd to find his way back to the baseball field and continue playing the sport he loves.
