The Bozeman Bucks may have multiple players who are currently playing college baseball on a scholarship or will be playing collegiate next year, but they also have a teammate who will be attending college for a much different reason than baseball.
Bozeman Buck Connor Tweet has become a crucial part of the team's pitching staff, and an integral part of the squad's success.
"We're counting on him to be one of pitchers who gets people out,” said Head Coach Dave Legg. “He also plays third, left field, and first so he has a versatile role and we're going to need him down the stretch."
But Connor does more than just perform on the baseball field.
In fact, his true passion lies in music, specifically singing.
"I've always dreamed of being in a boy band and stuff like that,” said Tweet. “I don't know. I don't know where music is going to take me, or anything else for that matter."
But music has taken him places already.
In high school Connor was the lead in the school musical.
His singing landed him with a choir scholarship to Boise State.
"If I could only sing one type of music it would be pop, absolutely. Singing a cappella in groups. I mean I love that kind of stuff. As far as training goes, it's all about classical music and that kind of thing."
"He was the lead for the big musical they had this year at the high school. When I found that out it was kind of exciting. I don't think I've ever been around anybody with a choir scholarship."
Unfortunately, Connor wouldn't sing for us because he's focused on baseball.
But don't be fooled, music is where his heart lies.
"Anytime that I'm not feeling well, anytime my mood isn't as happy as I think it should be, I can just flip on the radio and start singing along,” Tweet said. “I kind of forget about everything. I'd say singing is one of the most important things in my life."
