Garner High’s baseball team was eliminated from competition in the North Carolina state playoffs last night (May 11.) That means its most famous team member Scotty McCreery saw his high school baseball career end, as he is a graduating senior. Something tells us that he has a bright future ahead of him outside of baseball, being a Platinum-selling recording artist and all.

According to the News Observer, the ‘American Idol’ Season 10 winner was brought in to pitch in the third inning and he allowed three runs while on the mound, but only one of them was earned.

The coach referred to the superstar as “a very effective pitcher.” He continued, “I knew he would compete, but I had no idea he would be this effective,” referring to Scotty’s return to the team for his senior season. The teen missed his junior season because he was in the thick the ‘Idol’ competition.

McCreery was happy to get his senior season under his belt, saying, “You’re only 18 once and I wanted to be with my friends. I just wish we could have played a little big longer.”

Despite the loss and the end of an era for him, McCreery wasn’t dwelling. He had other business to attend to: his career. He flew to Nashville this morning (May 12) to perform, saying, “I’ll go on stage and smile.”

That Scotty is a true professional….who’ll be attending college in the fall.
