Lions alum brings MLB tour to town
McKinney High School alum and MLB.com Academy CEO Tyson Hanish brings the academy's Mobile Tour to Dallas on Saturday, March 16th and Sunday, March 17th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at The Ballfields at Craig Ranch Texas.
The free event will give fans a first look into the 2013 season and the opportunity to test the new swing analysis technology that MLB.com Academy will launch this spring. The myHits technology captures participant's hitting video to compare side by side against an MLB pro using an automated video analysis tool.
"When I created myHits my goal was to give youth baseball players, in every home in America, the opportunity to receive professional instruction," said Hanish. "One of the amazing things about the mobile tour is that we are finally able to share this one-of-a-kind technology with athletes around the country."
Hanish graduated from McKinney High School in 1999. He went on to play baseball at the college level, first at McLennan Community College in Waco, Texas and then at Northern Iowa. After graduation, Hanish was able to continue his career as a shortstop in the New York Yankees organization.

Collin County man among Fan Cave finalists

Park is representing the Texas Rangers, with a chance at moving to New York to watch every baseball game of the upcoming season while blogging, interviewing players and making creative videos. The competition's top 30 finalists are selected through fan voting, the original audition submission and ability to generate media buzz.
Each finalist will be flown out to spring training in Arizona later this month. To vote for Park, go to: mlb.mlb.com/fancave/vote.jsp.
Nike Hoop Summit selects Randle
McKinney resident Julius Randle, a Prestonwood Christian Academy alum, has been selected for the Nike Hoop Summit on Apr. 20 in Portland, Ore.
"Julius was obviously selected based on his ability to play basketball, but more importantly based on his character," said Chris Mayberry, Prestonwood head coach. "He has kept such a positive attitude dealing with the adversity of his injury and will continue to be selected for honors and awards because of his character."
The Nike Hoop Summit is one of the premier high school basketball showcases, pitting the country's top seniors against a World Select Team.
Randle is no stranger to such competition, capturing a gold medal on Team USA at the 2012 FIBA Americas U18 Championship last summer.
