CHILLICOTHE, Ohio — Unioto High School junior outfielder Micah Geise is a hot prospect. The right-hander made varsity as a sophomore and quickly showed he could hack it.
Geise hit .380 with 25 RBI and 19 stolen bases over 30 games last spring. He set a new Sherman Tanks team record with 44 runs. Plus, he tied the school season mark, posting five triples. He also pitched for the Tanks.
As a result, Geise earned second team All-Scioto Valley Conference honors. He also received a nod from Prep Baseball Report as an All-Ohio selection.
These accolades are the product of hard work and dedication.
Geise has dedicated himself to the sport of baseball. It is a year-round activity for him. He plays for a variety of club and travel teams during the offseason and works diligently at improving his game.
Aside from that, he stars on the Unioto soccer team. Geise is Sherman’s starting goalkeeper. He even got All-District recognition as a freshman. No question, his natural athletic abilities carry over from one sport to the next.
Among those traits is speed. On the diamond, he can turn singles into doubles and doubles into triples. With a smart swing and steady approach at the plate, Geise has plenty of potential for the future.
“Micah is an incredibly talented baseball player,” Unioto assistant coach Nick Rose said. “He is an on-base machine with plenty of pop in his bat who is a threat to steal every pitch, making him an ideal leadoff hitter. He is also a versatile player who can play anywhere, but his range in center field is outstanding, making him our pitching staff’s best friend.”
Beyond his athletic accomplishments, Geise excels in academics as well. He reportedly has carried a 4.0 GPA since elementary school. No matter what else he does, that is an impressive feat in itself.
The scouts have taken notice of him. The prevailing notion is he will only continue to improve with time. Rose credits his positive attitude and winning mentality as keys to Geies’s success.
“He is one of the most steady and positive young men I have ever been around and is willing to do whatever he is asked to by his coaches,” Rose said. “He is a calm and focused leader who supports his teammates in every way imaginable and brings his best effort every day. In short, a coach’s dream.”
From the sound of things, this young player is going places.
