Former Biloxi Shucker Keston Hiura hits home run at Spring Training

Just two days into Major League Baseball spring training, several players with local ties are already making a splash.

Most notably, former Biloxi Shucker Keston Hiura who smacked a three-run homer in his first Spring Training at-bat on Sunday.

He’s moving from second base to first base in 2021 and should be poised for his first full breakout season.

Sticking with the Biloxi Shuckers, really good day today for a pair of former pitchers starting with Corbin Burnes and his scoreless inning followed by Freddy Peralta and his scoreless inning with a combined five strikeouts.

Former Shucker Tyler Heineman, now with the Angels, hit a two-run blast while Southern Miss alum Kirk McCarty came into clean up Shane Bieber’s mess, recording the final out of the second inning.

Harrison Central alum Bobby Bradley absolutely crushed a solo homerun in the fourth inning of his spring game.
