A pair of Unaka senior baseball players had the opportunity this past weekend to showcase their skills at the Tennessee Smokies High School Showcase at Smokies Stadium in front of college and professional baseball scouts.

Center fielder Bobby Davenport and left-handed pitcher Jonathan Wright were both provided the chance to show their baseball skills along with players from seven states — and the experience was one they will never forget.
