Texas Rangers' Newest Rookie
May 9, 2017 By:Hunter Watson
2003 McNary Graduate Austin Bibens-Dirkx was called up to play for the Texas Rangers (Major League Baseball) this weekend. Aside from this being a really exciting moment for one of our alumni, it is also a great example of perseverance. Austin is 32 years old and has been toiling in the minor leagues for twelve years. His path has been long, and he could not have made it this far without a lot of grit and determination. Considering the work that we are trying to do at McNary, I’d think his story would be a great example for many of your students to know about.
