MCC student athlete never looses hope after injury

Davis Ferguson has been playing baseball for as long as he can remember.

“Ever since I could pick up a baseball, my brother, my dad played baseball. My dad was a very big-time baseball player. He played ever since I could pick up a baseball, that’s all I’ve done,”

Ferguson said.

Ferguson plays pitcher and outfield at MCC. In his career he has scored 3 homeruns and has 30 RBI’S and then suddenly the unexpected happened.

“It was a freak injury, on the right field. My teammate fell into my knee. My knee was planted in the ground. It hyperextended and tore a lot of stuff up,” said Ferguson.

Ferguson’s injury resulted in having surgery and using crutches for five weeks. He had to watch his team play while sitting on the bench.

“It was a very different scene for me. I was happy for my teammates, but I would have loved to be out there and do anything for them to win a game,” said Ferguson.

Ferguson says it was even more disappointing not being able to help his team compete in the regionals.

“We lost in the regionals to Mississippi Gulf Coast.” said Ferguson.

Ferguson developed doubt throughout his recovery phase.

“It crossed my mind like would I ever play again, would I ever be the same as I was, will I ever be able to run again?” said Ferguson.

As of now, the fall ball season is approaching, and Ferguson is hoping to make a full recovery just in time.

“Right now, I’m still going through therapy, and I got a couple of more doctor visits, and hopefully he’ll let me start running, and I can get back in the outfield,” said Ferguson.
