Bethlehem Christian Academy senior P.J. Klein quickly made an impact on the baseball field when he joined the Diamond Knights two seasons ago.
Now the senior is hoping to lead the BCA program to a third consecutive state baseball crown.
Klein, who recently signed to continue his baseball career for LaGrange University, and his teammates know a challenge awaits them as they move from Class A to Class AAA in the GISA.
“P.J. is a player whose attitude and energy everyone feeds off of,” said BCA baseball coach Colby May. “Just having him out there is key for everyone else because he brings such a passionate energy to the game. He picks everyone up. He brings life to the game that only a few can. He leads by his actions as well as being a verbal leader.”
In short, May said Klein is a “coach on the field” for the Knights.
“He is someone who is not scared to talk to a teammate and spend time with them after practice,” said his coach. “He helps bring this team together and helps everyone be better as an individual and as part of the team.”
