Former Louisiana Bulldog baseball player Dustin Green was named the most valuable player at a recent state all-star game.
Green and Louisiana teammate Austin Baker played for the east squad in the Missouri High School Baseball Coaches Association Senior All-Star Game on Saturday, June 14 at Lindenwood University in St. Charles.
One of the coaches for the east squad was former Bulldog B.J. Adams, who played on the first Louisiana baseball squad in 1994. The team came in second in the district his senior year of 1995.
Baker played first base in the recent game and Green played third base and pitched, Adams said.
With the west squad up 2-0 in the bottom of the fourth, Green stepped to the plate with men on second and third base. The infield was drawn in for a play at the plate or possible double play, Adams said.
Green took advantage and slapped a single up the middle, scoring both runners and tying the game at 2-2, Adams said.
The east squad eventually won the game in the bottom of the ninth inning when the west squad pitcher hit a batter with the bases loaded, making it 5-4.
