Ontario Jr. Avery Fisher
Ontario Warriors Future Baseball Buckeye
Since taking the high school baseball diamond in 2016, Avery Fisher has been arguably the most dominant player in North Central Ohio. The Ontario junior shortstop is a true five-tool player, with a rare combination of speed, power, quickness and arm strength, to go along with his immense knowledge of the game.
Fisher has been around the sport ever since he can remember with his father, Jeff, being a former standout 2nd-baseman at the University of Akron, inducted into the Zips Sports Hall of Fame in 2006. He spent 6 seasons as the head coach of his high school alma mater Bucyrus and now coaches Avery and the Warriors at Ontario.
Fisher has a .513 batting average this season with 5 triples, 24 RBI, 37 runs, 32 steals and a ridiculous 1.252 OPS. His range and throwing ability on defense are equally as impressive and a major reason why several Division 1 college programs recruited Fisher to play at the next level, including the Ohio State University where Avery committed as a sophomore.
His teammates universally agree that Fisher is the most intelligent baseball mind on the squad and believe his brains and ability raise the level of play for everyone on the team. Fisher’s Warriors are currently riding a 22-game winning streak into the Division II District Semifinals, where they will face Tiffin Columbian on Thursday at Heidelberg University.
