TCL All-Star game showcasing future baseball talent

KILGORE, TX (KLTV) -

Two tickets to the game.

One chance to see the future of baseball.

"The best players in Texas are here in this league and that is what you are playing against," said Brooks Marlow.

"We were sitting the the clubhouse talking about stories, there are some pretty good kids in there," said Garrett McMullen.

Not just good.

The best.

All coming together for the Texas Collegiate League All-Star game, held at Driller Park in Kilgore.

Marlow & McMullen are just a few of the players in the TCL to be selected.

There were also several East Texans named.

"For someone to say that he is good enough to play in an all star game is a big step up," said Kilgore's Matt Dickey, who plays at SFA.

It's likely not the last step in their baseball careers.

"I would say more than a couple of guys will be showing up on the big screen one day, hopefully one of them is me," said Marlow, who plays at The University of Texas.

"That would be cool, that is definitely one of my main goals," said McMullen, a Pine Tree graduate headed to play at SFA. "Wo I am trying to get there."

"I think there are actually a few guys that could become a big name," said A&M's Logan Taylor.

Names like Chris Davis and Hunter Dozier, who once played in the same league.

It's the opportunity for the players now to share the field, with the best in the game today and maybe even a future major leaguer.

"Certain guys on my team right now that you can tell are going there," said Dickey. "It will be a big honor just to say that I played with them at least this one game."

Taylor added, "I think there are some guys tonight that can make history and be in history later."

The TCL All-Star game was won by the East team 10-8.

Mattew Dickey knocked in three runs for the East.

    It's been Pro Day after Pro Day across the country the past two weeks, and today it was Stephen F. Austin's turn to put their crop of eligible athletes in front of NFL scouts.  "I was really proud of all the guys. I thought we had some excellent work on the bench press, Anthony Pullins knocked it out of the gym. We had some guys really jump well, run well, and then of course catch and throw well. I was real pleased and I think the five or six organizations that were here le...

    I think its safe to say Jameis Winston likes to hang out with East Texas talent. The Tampa Bay quarterback was in Lufkin Wednesday night with former teammate Jorvorskie Lane to help the former Lufkin star talk with kids and support his "Lane of Hope" foundation. But, earlier Wednesday, a picture surfaced on social media of Winston working out with Adrian Peterson in Houston at a training facility.
