Right after he finishes the Virtual Reality tour with Brad Paisley, Scotty McCreery has an item on his "to do" list you might not expect. He'll be going home to Garner, NC to play high school baseball. Scotty's been on the team for four years, even though he wasn't able to play last year because he was so busy with American Idol. The high school senior says his star status didn't garner him any favors when it came to try-outs either. "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. "
Scotty will miss the first couple games before the tour wraps in March, but he believes he's up for the challenge. "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!"
