Some valuable autographs were signed last Wednesday at Divine Child.
Seniors Myles Smith, Jeremy Shay and Anthony DiPaolo all inked National Letters of Intent to play college baseball in a ceremony held in the school lobby and attended by a number of classmates, teachers, coaches, friends and family members.
. . .
Smith became the first DC athlete to sign with a Big 12 school when he opted to head to Missouri.
He has been a major contributor for the past two years as a pitcher and shortstop for the Falcons and said he will continue to play both positions at the next level.
“They told me I’d be doing both,” he said. “They’re a young, up-and-coming team right now and I really liked the atmosphere down there when I visited the campus.
“It seems like a great place to be.”
Smith said he plans to major in business with a minor in psychology.
In the meantime, he still has some work to do before leaving DC.
“As Jeremy can attest, I still need to improve my control a little,” Smith said with a nod to Shay, who sometimes has to put his catcher’s equipment to the test chasing fastballs in the dirt. “There are always some things you can work on.”
