Could Highline High's Ryan Brett Be Destined For The Big Leagues?
Our news partners at The Seattle Times published a great story Saturday by Mason Kelly about a hot local baseball star from Highline High School named Ryan Brett.
Aside from already having a big-league sounding name (“Now batting, Ryannnn Brett!“), this kid is so good that Major League Baseball scouts can often be seen in Burien crowding the stands, sometimes just to watch him run the 60-yard dash.
Here are some excerpts from the story:
“I’ve been coaching for more than 30 years,” (Coach Dave) Larson said. “I’ve never had anyone like Ryan.”
“Seeing all these scouts here this year, I just try to keep myself relaxed and just try to hit the ball hard,” said Brett, who is hitting .667 with two home runs, five doubles, 11 stolen bases and nine runs batted in through six games.
We tip our collective ballcaps to young Ryan, and encourage everyone to read about this rising young local star here.
