KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - A guy who used to pitching inside Smokies Stadium for the Chicago Cubs Double-A affiliate is working his way back to the game.

Heritage High alum Trevor Clifton looks to return to pro ball after an up and down career in the minors followed by the Coronavirus Pandemic.

WVLT Sports caught up with Clifton, tossing live batting practice over at Christian Academy of Knoxville. He said it’s a great way to stay sharp while giving back to the sport he loves.

Trevor was taken by the Cubs in the 12th round of the MLB Draft out of high school and was named Cubs minor league pitcher of the year in 2016.
