West Columbia, SC (WLTX) --- In 2012, the Airport baseball team won just four games. This season, the Eagles started off the season 18-0 and a big reason for the turnaround is shortstop Casey Parker.
The senior has been called the"spark plug" by head coach Tim Perry who says Parker is valuable as a relief pitcher but feels he needs to keep Casey at shortstop whenever possible.
In the classroom, Casey is ranked in the top 10% of the senior class with a grade point average that is approaching a 4.0
Casey says he has several offers to play baseball in college, but is weighing his options right now. He does know he plans on majoring in sports medicine or physical therapy.
