The state’s returning Gatorade Player of the Year, the 6-foot-2, 200-pound senior is the highest-rated right-handed pitching prospect in Kansas by both Perfect Game and the Prep Baseball Report. A two-time First Team All-State selection, Kaminska did not surrender an earned run in his final high school season of 2019, setting a state-record for consecutive strikeouts (29 over three games), which ranks as the second-longest streak in national prep history. His 0.00 ERA also set a state record.
Kaminska has maintained a 4.0 GPA in the classroom, ranks No. 1 in his class and represents one of the state’s top academic candidates in meeting the Gatorade award’s broad criteria. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to play baseball on scholarship at Wichita State University.
A devoted parishioner of the Tyro Christian Church and a member of the National Honor Society, Kaminska has donated his time as a recreation league umpire and has volunteered locally making up care packages for active-duty military in addition to helping to build wood structures for the school district, including a bus barn and the superintendent’s office. He has also served on behalf of the Caney Recreation Commission, laying sod and planting rye on the city baseball field as well as disassembling old fencing. Kaminska helps out on his family’s fifth-generation farm on a daily basis and enjoys working cattle, fishing and tinkering with cars and trucks.
