A local boy from Parkside High now has a chance to play with the Cleveland Indians.
Hunter Parsons could follow his dream after he was drafted by the ball club in the 40th round in the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.
But the Salisbury right-handed pitcher had been planning on playing at the University of Maryland.
He must decide what to do by next month.
The Salisbury Daily Times reports that Parsons is just the latest in a number of other local names that include K.J Trader of Delmar and Daniel Cropper who was drafted out of college.
