Baseball is a big part of life in the Uintah Basin for many local families. It makes the investments worth it when members of the Basin are able to take the local opportunities and make something better of it. Uintah High School alum Jayden Murray has done just that. He was a standout pitcher at Uintah High and graduated in 2015. He played four years of college baseball and spent the last two years at Dixie State. While at Dixie he set a school record for the most strikeouts in a season. Jayden was drafted on Wednesday in the 23rd round of the 2019 Major League Draft by the Tampa Bay Rays. Congratulations to Jayden and good luck!
