Selected to All American team
Before the Bulldogs varsity basketball game Tuesday night, 2012 Mexico High School graduate Hunter Haynes was honored with a special recognition. This past summer Haynes was selected to the American Baseball Coaches Association Region 5 All American team. Region 5 is made up of the states of South Dakota, North Dakota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri and Wisconsin. Haynes is one of only 13 players selected to the Region 5 All American team. His former high school coach Keith Louder presented him a framed certificate for this special recognition. Haynes spent last summer and fall pitching for the Kansas City Royals in their minor league system and will be reporting to spring training in late February with the Royals.
