 Hurley has played travel ball since he was 12 years old. Hurley enjoyed playing with new people and being able to have fun doing what he loved best.

 Like every athlete, Hurley did experience some obstacles. At the age of 15 Hurley hurt his arm throwing too many curve balls. When hurley went to the doctors they said he tore his Tommy John ligament in his right arm.

   “It was very depressing because it seemed as if I would never be able to play baseball again,” stated Hurley.

The doctors informe hurley at university of maryland hospital that two possible outcomes would take place. Hurley’s body would either adapt to the pain or his elbow would pop out of it’s socket.

  “My body adjusted to the pain. It only hurts when my arm is not conditioned,” stated Hurley.

   Saturday, May 12th2018, Hurley played in his last high school game at Snow Hill High School. The team lost 11-4. Many of the teammates were devastated.

   “I was upset after the game was over because I believed there should have been a different outcome. We could have won the game if we didn’t have so many errors” stated Hurley.
