Signing on the dotted line:

Zac Klosterman began his baseball career as a third baseman in tee-ball. That’s because at the age of 4, he was the only player on the team who could throw the ball across the infield from third base to first base.
Eventually, Klosterman used his arm strength as a pitcher and catcher for four years for the Mexia High School varsity team.
Now, the Blackcat senior will hone his baseball skills at the collegiate level.
Klosterman signed Monday to play baseball at Cedar Valley College in Lancaster. He will be a catcher for the Suns, a National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) team that competes in the Metro Athletic Conference.
Playing at the college level has been on Klosterman’s radar since he was that pre-schooler with the strong arm.
“It’s been my dream since I was 4 years old,” he said before his signing at the Mexia High School auditorium. “Baseball’s always kind of been my thing. I’m just glad I get to pursue the dream.”
