Holy Cross Grad Playing for Summer Baseball Team
A Holy Cross High School graduate who now plays college baseball at Ohio University has been tapped for a summer league.
Conner Callery, a Covington native was selected to play for the Southern Ohio Copperheads, according to a news release from the team. The Copperheads, located in Athens, Ohio, are a member of the Great Lakes Summer Collegiate Baseball League and play their home games at Ohio University’s Bob Wren Stadium.
“I want to have a good time, meet a lot of new guys around here and just win and compete,” Callery said. “I want to play a little bit and get back into the groove (of playing baseball).”
Callery will use his stint with the Copperheads to prepare him for his next college season and a potential professional career. Callery recently finished his second season with the Bobcats where he plays in the infield.
The Copperheads play a 40-game schedule in the months of June and July, with a playoffs that extend into August. The team is currently 2-0 on the season and will play their next game at the Lake Erie Monarchs on Tuesday, June 9 at 7:05.
