Ed Scott drops his bat after a hit during a Manhattan High baseball game against Junction City on May 9, 2017.

Former Manhattan High baseball star Ed Scott inked with Texas Christian University, a perennial powerhouse in the college baseball scene. Scott went to play at Cloud County Community College after his high school career concluded, and he is now one of 13 T-Birds to sign with four year schools. Scott sat out for the 2019 season after getting injured.

“Ed is getting the opportunity to go play for one of the best programs in the nation.,” Cloud County head coach Eric Gilliland said in a release. He combines a high level skill set with one of the best mental makeups I have ever coached. His work ethic and attitude are unmatched. He is having a big summer in Junction City, and we hope he carries it over into TCU with three years to play still after missing this year with injury.”

Scott played 32 games as a freshman and batted .302, riving in 18 runs and scoring 24.

When he was at Manhattan, Scott batted .348 with 10 extra-base hits to earn 6A All-State honors.
