Salado seniors Casey Frazier, Cole Haag and Britton Hawes aren’t done playing high school baseball.
Better still, they aren’t done being teammates.
The trio were selected to play in the Austin Area Baseball Coaches Association All-Star Game on June 9, 7 p.m. at Round Rock’s Dell Diamond.
On June 10, all three will play in the Central Texas All-Star Game, 6 p.m., at Baylor University.
“It’s a good feeling to know that I get to play two more games with Britton and Cole before we go our separate ways to play in college,” said Frazier.
“Two more games with Casey and Cole sounds great to me,” said Hawes. “I’m with my catcher for three years and my pitching-mate for three years.”
Frazier and Hawes were the 1-2 pitching aces for Salado. Haag was their ever-dependable catcher.
“As far as I’m concerned,” Haag said, “there aren’t enough awards that could be given out to Casey and Britton. They deserve everything they’ve gotten and then some.”
Frazier was also selected to play in the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association All-Star Game on June 14, 3 p.m., at Dell Diamond.
“I feel very honored,” Frazier said. “I’ve never played in an all-star game before. So I’m looking forward to all three of them.
“I just want to go out there and enjoy them. Of course I also want to be competitive. It will be the last time I ever get to pitch as a high school player, so I want to enjoy them.”
“I didn’t expect to make any all-star game,” Hawes said. “So to make two is extra special. It’s a real honor to be selected because there are so many good players out there.”
“There are a lot of high-quality players in Texas,” Haag said. “So to be selected to play in all-star games is pretty cool.”
