Big Rapids Cardinal gets new baseball


BIG RAPIDS – Big Rapids baseball will be having a new varsity coach.

Dawn Thompson noted this week that Sam Daugherty, the coach since 2015, has retired. The new coach is Jake Schumann.

Daugherty coached from 2015-2022, for eight years total, but seven actual seasons as a result of COVID in 2020.

Under Daugherty, the program won conference championships in 2016, 2017 and 2018. They finished second in the league in 2019, 2021 and 2022. In 2018, they won a district championship and were regional finalists for the deepest run in school history.
