Scotty McCreery took the pitcher's mound playing for his high school team Saturday afternoon. Even though the Garner, NC Trojans lost the game, Scotty was happy to be playing baseball again for the first time since winning American Idol last year.
"It feels good just to come out here and just get back on the field," Scotty told the Charlotte News & Observer . "I thought my curveball worked well. But today was just about the team. I'm glad to help out the team in any way possible."
Scotty is mostly off the road to finish high school this spring. He hits the road with Brad Paisley again on May 18 in Missouri.
