Two Williamson County baseball standouts were among the Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association’s 2019 Mr. Baseball finalists.
Independence’s Robert Hassell (Class AAA) and Christ Presbyterian Academy’s Travis Odom (Class D-II A) were each recognized for their regular seasons.
Hassell (Vanderbilt) and Odom (Auburn) are both headed off to the SEC after high school.
Hassell’s Eagles just won the 11-AAA district tournament, and he was the district’s Player of the Year.
Odom’s Lions are in the midst of a state tournament elimination game on the road against Chattanooga Christ School.
The awards will be announced Tuesday, May 21, at New Vision Baptist Church at 11:00 a.m.
