TYLER, TX (KLTV) -  Two Tyler Junior College baseball players signed on with four year schools on Thursday.  Hallsville native Jason Jester signed with Texas A&M.  Marshall native Josh Salmon signed with Henderson State.

Jester said he was actually a Texas Longhorn fan, but would have to change his colors.  Playing in the Big 12 is a dream come true.  He'll also be playing for some of the best fans in college baseball.

"Sports Illustrated rated it the number one atmosphere to play in college baseball," Jester said of A&M's home field advantage.  "So it's something to really look forward to. 55 hundred people on average. They've got all kind of traditions they do, swaying back and forth and all that stuff. It's going to be real exciting."
