Two Monroe County residents, Tristan Hunt and Riley McCallum, spent the week leading up to Sunday’s Baseball Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony living out their own baseball dreams. Hunt and McCallum played in Cooperstown, N.Y., the home of the Baseball Hall, for the Georgia Batmen out of Valdosta. The Batmen went 6-0 in pool play and made it to the Elite Eight. The Batmen finished the week 8-1 and ranked fifth out of 104 teams. As a bonus for playing in Cooperstown, Hunt, McCallum and their teammates were inducted into the American Youth Baseball Hall of Fame.
