After verbally committing to play baseball at Hofstra University in October, Cedar Ridge first baseman Aidan McAllister formally signed with the Pride during a ceremony inside the Cedar Ridge Media Center on Thursday afternoon. The event included Cedar Ridge baseball coach Bryson Massey, Athletic Director Andy Simmons, Principal Dr. Carlos Ramirez and member of the Red Wolves baseball team. McAllister has played for the Red Wolves varsity squad for three years. Last season, he hit two home runs in the opening two innings against crosstown rival Orange. Just a few years ago, McAllister was unsure if he was capable of being a college baseball player, much less a Division I caliber player. McAllister credits his improvement to The Edge Sports Performance in Durham, as well as Coach Massey. McAllister and the rest of the Red Wolves will start their season on March.2 at Chapel Hill.
