EAST BEND — Forbush baseball player Tyler Campbell signed his letter of intent on Tuesday to play baseball at Catawba Valley Community College. Campbell has played baseball for the Falcons for the past three years, and he’s looking forward to her senior season which starts in the spring.
Campbell has been a staple for the Forbush baseball team, as he helped lead the Falcons to their first conference championship in several years. At CVCC, Campbell will play first base while also serving as a designated hitter. Campbell will graduate in the spring and continue his baseball career in the fall.
“I feel pretty excited, and this is a dream come true. Since I was about 8, I always wanted to play college baseball. This is just the first step, the next step will be a four-year university,” said Campbell. “I just want to thank my parents who could have spent all of those weekends doing other stuff, but they took me to play baseball. I also want to thank all of the coaches along the way who helped me get here.”
