One of our very own seniors, Easton Brinton, has signed with Mesa Community College to play baseball at the collegiate level.

Before signing with his chosen college, he had offers from two other colleges; Big Bend College and Wenatchee Valley College. Easton decided to choose Mesa Community College because he said they have a “good program” and he is “really excited to play [baseball] at the next level.”

Easton said he started playing t-ball at four year of age. That’s 14 years he has been playing baseball.

While his main two positions are pitcher and catcher, he has also played third base and shortstop. At one point, Easton was a multi-sport athlete, playing baseball and football.

He currently only plays baseball. When asked why he started playing baseball, he said, “I want to be better than my uncle.”

Throughout his journey playing ball, he has had to overcome a shoulder injury, but his father has been there supporting and helping him. Easton also gives a shout out to Coach Wilson. The night before every game, he works on the t, putting in batting work.

Minutes before a game, Easton mentally prepares by listening to country music.

As a player, Easton looks up to Yadier Molina of the Cardinals, while his favorite team is the Yankees.

He said his ultimate goal is to be drafted and play MLB.
