Scotty McCreery to Go Back to Baseball After Tour Ends

“I have a feeling, though, it’s gonna be rough,” singer says of his return to the mound.

Did you know that Scotty McCreery has been on his high school baseball team for the last three seasons? OK, he had to miss last season because of obligations to some American Idol television show he was doing.

But Scotty tells ABC News Radio that—after he gets off the Brad Paisley tour in March—he will return to the fighting Trojans of Garner Magnet High School in North Carolina for his senior season.

And they didn't just give him his spot back: Scotty had to try out.

"Singing don't really mean you can really play ball well. So, they had to see if I had a little something left in me," he said.

"I have a feeling, though, it's gonna be rough. I'm a pitcher, so I have a feeling when I get on the mound guys are gonna be taunting me and stuff. I'm just gonna blow it off and strike 'em out!"
