Carrington multi-sport athlete Hope Carr has signed a Dakota Athletic Conference letter of intent to attend Jamestown College and play volleyball and track and field for the Jimmies.
Carr placed fifth in the 300 hurdles (47.58) and ninth in the 1000 hurdles (16.36) at the state meet last year for the Cardinals.
That’s all Minnesota Twins’ draftee Kyle Carr logged in three appearances against other big league baseball prospects during spring training.
But five innings was more than enough to give the 22-year-old left-hander from Linton a heavy dose of confidence. In those five frames, Carr allowed no runs and only one baserunner.
Left-handed pitcher Kyle Carr, a Linton native, is now under contract with the Minnesota Twins, the team that picked him in the 12th round of this year’s Major League Baseball draft.
Carr, 21, decided to skip his senior season with the Minnesota Gophers to sign a contract with the Twins. He did not disclose details of the deal.
“There was a lot to think about since the draft, but it all came down to taking advantage of the opportunity to play pro ball,” Carr said. “I’m going to miss playing with the Gophers. I’m going to miss my teammates and coaches. But I’m excited about moving on.
The Minnesota Twins obviously really liked what they saw in Kyle Carr.
For the second time in four years, the Twins drafted the Linton native, doing so in the 12th round of the Major League Baseball draft on Friday. Carr, who recently completed his third season at the University of Minnesota, was at his parents’ home to get the news, which did not comes as a huge surprise to the 6-foot-5, 200-pound left-handed pitcher.
“Going into it, I had a pretty educated guess where I was going,” said Carr, also a basketball and football standout for the Lions. “I had maybe hoped to go a couple of rounds earlier, but it doesn’t really matter where you go. First round, fifth round, 12th round — you still have to make it.”
