Yankees catcher Jose Trevino offers support for New York high school team

When an athlete reaches the pinnacle of their respective sport, you can bet they’ve suffered a lot of heartbreaking defeats.

Well, it doesn’t get much more challenging than what Hornell High School (NY) University Baseball went through a few weeks ago when they lost the May 27th state championship game to Palmyra-Macedon High due to a lost third bat followed by an early celebration during a live performance.

It’s an agonizing way to end a season, but at least the team gets some love from a major league player.

Yankees catcher Jose Trevino has reportedly reached out to the team to offer his support MLB.com’s Bryan Hoch. Trevino said he feels sorry for the players and also spoke about how important high school baseball is to his career.

“I wouldn’t be where I am today without high school baseball. It is very important to me…. I just felt sorry for the kid and his teammates because I thought they had won the championship. I won two state championships in high school. I know the satisfaction of winning and spending a year with the guys you grew up with in town. That means a lot. I just know how much it would have meant for them to win.”

Trevino invited the Hornell players to a home game at Yankee Stadium later that season.
