Cameron High School graduating baseball player Austin Standridge will leave this afternoon for Puerto Rico to participate in the Coast to Coast Baseball Program.
The Yellowjacket slugger, who won the 2012 High School Baseball Coaches Association's Home Run Derby on May 23 at McAlester's Mike Deak Field, was ecstatic when he was invited to participate.
