New coach brings energy to H-F baseball team

H-F varsity baseball head coach John McCarthy took over the baseball program last June and has brought a new energy to the team since joining the staff. 

Vikings drafted by MLB choose college

Two outstanding members of the Vikings baseball team at Homewood-Flossmoor High School were offered contracts in the Major League Baseball draft in June.

But left-handed pitcher Kyle Salley and outfielder Zaid Walker passed on the offers and instead will play ball in college. Both can be drafted by MLB after their third year of college.

Zaid Walker, the right fielder on the Homewood-Flossmoor High School baseball team, is so good that Major League Baseball scouts are at games watching his performance. What’s in their notebooks is not just his fielding record, but his focus on the game and ability to swing.
