Former Science Hill baseball standout Daniel Norris is about to mark a first for players in the Tri-Cities area. Tuesday he was selected to play in the MLB All-Star weekend's Futures Game.
Norris, a pitcher in the Blue Jays system, was just promoted from Single A Dunedin to Double A New Hampshire a week ago after posting impressive numbers there.
For the season, Norris is 6-0 in 14 starts this season with a 1.63 ERA. He's struck out 85 batters while walking just 18 in 72 innings pitched.
He'll play for the United States team in the Futures Game. That's Sunday, July 13.
1205 Front St., Raleigh
