KALIDA — Coach Joe Recker has announced his resignation after 6 years as the head baseball coach at Kalida High School.

During his run, Kalida amassed a record of 99-47 that included the last 4 PCL Titles, 2 District Championships, and 2 Regional Runner-Up appearances in 2016 and 2019.
 The Kalida Athletic Department wants to congratulate Coach Recker for his years of service and dedication to the baseball program at Kalida.  Seeing his former players come back to throw batting practice, attend the games, and help coach shows how much respect they had for Coach Recker and the program he continued to build when he took over for Coach Jim McBride.
We would also like to thank his family for their support, especially his wife, Lori.  We know that being a coach requires a great deal of time and effort away from family and we want to thank them for this sacrifice.
