Parker signs to play baseball at local university

Parker is being recruited to play at UHV as a two-way player

VICTORIA, Texas — Early afternoon on April 27, Victoria East Titan baseball player, Brady Parker, is signing to a local college to continue his  career.

Parker was joined by family and friends who watched him sign at the University of Houston-Victoria. Parker is being recruited to play at UHV as a two-way player, meaning he is going to pitch, field and hit. While at UHV, he wants to get bigger, stronger and pitch harder. Parker decided to play for the Jaguars because his family and friends will be able to watch him play.

A lot of it has to do with that I have been playing [at Riverside Park] for the past four years. I think these past four years I’ve been pitching really good at our home field, said Parker. That really was a big part of why I chose to stay here.

Parker said he would have been torn if he received an offer to play basketball but he hopes to prove to himself that he can play at the next level, along with hitting and fielding. In college, he wants to major in kinesiology and become a coach.
