    Fairport’s Scooter Vale a standout on and off the field

    -

    Fairport Harding High School’s Nathan “Scooter” Vale grew up playing baseball with his brothers, mostly in the family’s living room.

    He developed a love for the sport and a work ethic that helped him succeed on and off the field.

    “I was born and bred a baseball fan,” he said.

    Off the field, Vale graduated as the Valedictorian of his senior class. On it, he was selected to play in the Ohio Varsity All-Star Classic and will represent the Air Force All-Stars at Kenston High School on Sunday.

    He’ll play with Fairport teammate Colin Hites and against his friend, Cuyahoga Heights’ Zac Lowther, who is on the Marines All-Stars.

    “It is a true honor to be selected to play for team Air Force in the (game),” Vale said. “To play with my teammate Colin Hites and with other great high school players makes it a true accomplishment. I hope to just have fun in the game, but winning would be a plus. I am super excited to play against Zac Lowther one more time. He is a friend and he is a great competitor.”

    The game will be the last as Vale will attend Ohio State University to study civil engineering.
