North Carolina native Scotty McCreery is currently on tour with country legend Brad Paisley, but there’s one springtime pastime for which Scotty is anxious to get to back home: baseball.
Before being plucked out of his small town to sing in front of international audiences, Scotty pitched for his high school baseball team — and he plans on doing the same thing year. Scotty tells New Observer: "I'm in an adult world now, but I want to be able to play baseball with my friends. I still want to have a senior year in high school and play some baseball. It's something I've always wanted to do."
Scotty plans to be at the season home-opener on Tuesday, but he won’t be taking the field, he says. "I've got work to do," Scotty explains. "But I think it will come back when I can get home and practice every day instead of one day a week or so."
