Having two major league baseball players from Texarkana playing in this years World Series is bringing a lot of attention to our area.It is very uncommon to say the least to have two players in the Series from the same city, especially a place our size. Michael Wacha and Will Middlebrooks are definitely something for our community to be proud of and rally around.

The Los Angeles Times newspaper has even done an interesting article on the fact that a city our size has two players from opposite teams participating in this years series. This attention will only grow over the next week or so as the series unfolds, especially if either or both players excel in their play.

I would imagine this gives young baseball players around our area the hope and incentive to give it all they have and dream big. Michael Wacha and Will Middlebrooks are living proof that you can make it and that our town is a producer of big league talent.
