Tristan Hopgood from Bay High and Hunter Waltman from Hancock High were the only two players from Hancock County who were part of the District 8 All-Star Baseball Team at Meridian Community College at the State Games. District 8 was the undisputed winner. The team was made up of high school players who will graduate in 2015 and 2016. The State Games also afforded the players a chance to showcase their talents for pro, college and junior college coaches. Forty-two coaches and pro scouts were on hand, Rutledge said, for the Showcase. In addition to pro scouts, coaches from Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Southern Miss, Delta State, Millsaps, virtually all the Mississippi community colleges and some Alabama junior colleges got a chance to watch the action.
