Edmond Santa Fe right-hander Ty Hensley walked to the mound at Wrigley Field on Saturday, starting for the American team in the Under Armour All-America Baseball Game.
He got the first batter he faced to ground out, then worked out of a two-on, one-out situation with a double play to cap a scoreless inning.
“It was a blast,” Hensley said. “It was so much fun to be able to do that.”
Hensley hit 94 on the radar gun during his performance.
After getting back from Chicago, Hensley made his college choice official when he committed to Ole Miss.
He chose the Rebels over Arizona State and Texas.
He said he had known he wanted to commit to Ole Miss for awhile but wanted to wait to make it official.
“I just wanted to make sure that it was for sure where I wanted to go,” he said. “Felt like it was a place where I could develop as both a pitcher and a hitter better than anyplace else.”

Yukon football coach Todd Wilson stumbled into quite a find for his coaching staff.
Wilson hired former Oklahoma State and NFL defensive back Jamie Thompson as an assistant just a few days before camp opened last Tuesday.
