Minor Leaguer Speaks With Softball Team
BILOXI, Miss – Danville Braves outfielder, Brandon Parker, spoke with the St. Patrick Softball team today. Parker, once a standout at West Harrison High School and Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, was drafted in the 10th round of the 2019 MLB draft by the Atlanta Braves.
The softball team did more than listen to Parker about his career; he showed the girls some of the strategies he employs as a professional baseball player. Parker coupled that knowledge with different drills he uses to better his game.
