Brett Young hopes Major League Baseball team moves to Nashville soon – Everett Post
Baseball has always been a big part of young brettlife. As a teenager he even thought he would pursue the sport professionally and he was drafted to play with the Minnesota Twins after high school. But instead he chose to go to Ole Miss, where he played baseball for a year before being sidelined with an elbow injury.
And while the singer is very happy with his country music career, he has also found a way to incorporate his passion for baseball into his life. On Wednesday he joined the Music City Baseball Music Advisory Board, People reports. This means Brett will be involved in lobbying for a Major League team to officially move to Nashville.
“I would love to bring a team to Nashville that I can support and support and be a part of,” he explains. “I think it would be great for the city, and selfishly it would be amazing for me to have a team here in the city.”
Even though he’s no longer a professional ball player, Brett says he’s learned a valuable skill set during his time on the pitch.
“As an adult, I realize that the most important thing that ever happened to me because of baseball was the work ethic that I learned,” he recalls. “It’s something that has continued in my music career and has served me very well, and I will always be grateful to baseball for it.”
In his new role on Music City Baseball’s Music Advisory Board, Brett is in the company of superstars: Darius rucker, Justin timberlake and Luc Combs are also members of the board of directors.
