Plano East Baseball Booster Club member Nathan Shaw and Plano East Baseball Head Coach Jordan Byrd work on the field outside the Home team dugout
Players in the Plano East Senior High baseball program recently joined members of the Plano East Baseball Booster Club to prepare the baseball fields at McMillen, Williams and Plano East for the upcoming high school baseball season.
“I am very proud of the young men in our baseball program,” said Jordan Byrd, Plano East Baseball Head Coach. “In the off season, they volunteered to open car doors for elementary students and help teachers in classrooms. Our young men visited Plano and Murphy police departments and fire stations to thank the men and women for their service. They gave up their Saturday morning to clean, repair and paint to get everything in shape at all three of our schools’ facilities. Now they’re ready to compete against other high schools in the 2020 baseball season. I’m excited to see these guys play at a very high level.”
