Recker steps down
as Kalida head coach
KALIDA — Coach Joe Recker has announced his resignation after six years as the head varsity baseball coach at Kalida High School.
During his run, Kalida amassed a record of 99-47 that included the last four Putnam County League titles, two district championships and a pair of regional runner-up appearances in 2016 and 2019.
“When I took this job my number one goal was to win ballgames, but I tried to teach a few life lessons,” Recker posted on @JoeRecker2 on Twitter. “I hope that I have accomplished that. I have been truly blessed to coach in a community where core values are still being taught every day. The friendships that I have developed in baseball with coaches, umpires and the media are very special to me and will always be treasured.”
