CHUCKEY – The South Central Elementary Baseball Team recently spent the day with two baseball players, Hector Lujan of the Twins organization and Reed Hayes of the Oriels organization.

The two players participated in a coaching clinic for the South Central Wildcat team. The players and coaches were excited for the opportunity to get some big league tips from players who have made it to the majors.

“This was a rare opportunity for middle school students to get coached and ask questions of these two amazing players.” SCES Head Baseball Coach Dearstone said.

Jordan Byrd, one of the eighth grade students hoping to be the starting pitcher for the Wildcats this year, said, “The big league pitchers were very helpful. They showed us how to take care of our arms and showed us the fundamentals of pitching and the sport.”

This month, Lujan and Hayes will head off to spring training.
