TCL All-Star Game!

Derek Wiley, second from right, celebrates his three-run homer.

After losing the first three Texas Collegiate League All-Star games, the Rogers Hornsby Division finally broke through.

McKinney’s Derek Wiley hit a three-run home run in the sixth inning to lead the Hornsby All-Stars past the Tris Speaker Division 3-0 Monday. Wiley, who is from Belmont University, was named the game’s MVP.

“I was looking for a good pitch and I was down 0-2, so I was going to battle,” Wiley said. “I got a good curveball to hit and just put a good swing on it.”

The Hornsby pitching staff held the Speaker All-Stars to three hits.

Greer a hit

Former Rangers outfielder Rusty Greer is making his mark in the TCL.

Greer, the first-year manager of the Colleyville LoneStars, managed the Speaker All-Stars and received a loud cheer from the fans during pregame introductions.

“It’s a big honor,” Greer said of his All-Star nomination. “Hopefully, it means I’m doing something right.”

Greer’s team is 6-10 and in last place in the division, but the 2007 Rangers Hall of Fame inductee created a buzz when he was first introduced as the Colleyville manager and has helped give the TCL a familiar face.

“That’s kind of why I took this job,” Greer said. “I wanted to help out not only the Colleyville LoneStars but the league as well.”
