It was an exciting Thursday for one local high school baseball player.
West Ouachita’s Austin Tidwell signed to continue his career at Copiah-Lincoln Junior College.
The Mississippi school is 45 miles south of Jackson.
He finished 2017 on the mound with a 7-3 record, 2.87 earned run average, a no-hitter and four complete game shutouts.
He’ll join former teammate Drew Thomas at the school.
