as Hornell catcher The Palmyra-Macedonian baserunner circled the base lane as he tucked a baseball into his right pocket and hugged his pitcher and other teammates. The play was still going on, and it was too late for everyone to find out; because both teams were wearing red uniforms, the scene was even more chaotic.

When the dust settles, Palmyra- Macedonia won 6-5, and Trevino’s heart ached — especially young catcher Hornell.

“I’m just for this kid and his Teammates feel bad, think they won the championship,” Trevino said. “I won two state championships in high school. I know the satisfaction of winning a game and spending a full year with the people in my town who grew up. It means a lot. I just know what it means to them to win How many.”

Trevino said his message to catchers everywhere was: “There’s a reason they’re catching at that level. The rest of the field can’t do it, or don’t want to. The catchers are the ones who are brave enough to get out there and strap on their gear, and everyone’s looking to them for answers. “
