David Garner ready to become a Chicago Cub


Niles 3-sport star David Garner's dreams of playing professional baseball have come a reality.  Garner was drafted in the 7th round by the Cubs.  He is forgoing his senior year at Michigan State and is leaving for Mesa, Arizona Tuesday before getting sent to Boise for the Cubs summer league team.  Garner told me today that receiving that phone call on draft day was the best day of his life.

"When I finally got the call it was just so much stress relieved, I just laid down and was like 'thank you jesus,'" Garner said.  When asked by Allison Hayes if it was a dream of his to be a professional athlete, he said "yes." 

"When you was little you thought you could play any sport...but now that I got the opportunity and my dreams came a reality I'm just going to work real hard to pursue it."
