Augusta’s Hunter Henderson – Baseball Spotlight – Presented by Advanced Physical Therapy

By Matt Browning

Hunter Henderson of Augusta was voted as the Wichita Small School Preseason Player of the Year. Henderson received over 38,000 votes, which was nearly 47 percent of the overall vote. Henderson, who is a catcher, hit .405 with 28 runs batted in and had a caught stealing percentage of 30.5.

“It means a lot to me to get all of these votes with all of these quality players,” Henderson said. “There were a lot of friends and family that voted for me and believed that I deserved this award and it really meant a lot to hear that from everyone.”

The 2019 season was a good one for Henderson, but he is committed to making his 2021 season even better.

“Individually I’m focused on all I can do for my team whether it’s hitting, catching, or even cheering on my team when they’re batting,” Henderson said. “As a team, we’re focused on attacking the day every day at practice and games, which will lead us to a state championship.”

Henderson said he and his teammates are relieved and excited to be back on the field after two years.

“It’s awesome being back on the field with all of my friends and practicing every day,” Henderson said. “I really missed it and glad we’re back into the full swing of things.”

The plan next year for Henderson is to play baseball in college and as a career, he wants to be in sports marketing for a professional sports team.
