Round Rock High School baseball players and coaches invited elementary and middle school students who will attend Round Rock High School to meet the players Feb. 4 at the Round Rock High School baseball field.
John Carter, Round Rock Baseball Head coach, announced the players for the 2016-17 season as a crowd of anxious students waited in the stands. As a special treat, Coach Carter also invited the 1997 Dragon baseball team to the field. Coach Carter took this team all the way to the state championships. As each player took the field for the first time in years, the coach presented them with the jersey they wore during the championship game.
After the players were introduced, elementary and middle school students met the players on the field and practiced pitching, catching and batting. The older players coached the younger players on their techniques and encouraged them to keep playing so that they could be on the Dragon baseball team someday.
