Playing baseball for Bryant High School was a lifelong dream of Tyler Brown.
Now the 18-year-old son of Brad and Shelley Brown is making a name for himself on the diamond as the starting second baseman for the Hornets.
As the second batter in the Hornets' lineup, Brown, a senior, has a .421 batting average on the season, as well as 17 RBIs and five doubles.
Head coach Kirk Bock described Brown as a "great leader."
After going undefeated in conference play during the regular season, Glen Rose lost its first game of the 3A-5 District Tournament Saturday.
However, the Lady Beavers will still play as a No. 3 seed this week in the 3A Regional Tournament held at Harding Academy in Searcy.
Had Glen Rose won Saturday, it would have faced Harmony Grove in the finals.
The Lady Cardinals were scheduled to face Cutter Morning Star today in the championship, but inclement weather forced the game to be postponed until Tuesday â€” possibly Wednesday depending on how the weather fares.
