Moe realizes dream of college baseball

On a cold December morning last year, Bradley Moe wanted to get on the diamond for some extra repetitions ahead of the upcoming baseball season. With no teammates or coaches around, the Sherman High School senior called on his mother Shannon Devore for some batting practice and soft toss. Just thinking about that moment — his mother dressed down in a heavy coat with mittens on and a stocking cap covering her head, evoked an ear-to-ear smile. It is not something a lot of other mothers would do, but Moe has plans to take the sport of baseball as far as he can, maybe even professionally, and so through that level of commitment from someone he loves, he vows to pay it forward at the next level, where he accepted a scholarship offer to play baseball for Clackamas Community College.
