Over the last six months, BSC rising sophomore Jaden Scott has spent a lot of at Shiloh Christian. But for the last two, he’s been teaching lessons in winning baseball.
Dwyer Field is home for Jaden Scott.
“This our home field too,” Scott said. “BSC too.”
During the spring, Jaden competed for Bismarck State on this turf. He liked it so much decided to spend his summer here too.
“I just didn’t want to be done playing,” Scott said. “I had thoughts of going to coach and doing other things, but I really just wanted to get one more summer in of playing baseball.”
Bismarck Capitals Coach Aric Lee saw Jaden playing at BSC. Coach Lee wanted Jaden to pass on the lessons learned from the Mystics to the Capitals.
“He brings that winning tradition right over to us,” Lee said. “That’s huge for us to transfer that over to our kids.”
Jaden played a key part in the Capitals second place finish during the Southwest Regional Tournament. The 18-year-old did it all for the Caps: He hit in the three-spot, pitched, catched and played third base.
“I like being the guy they go to in big moments,” Scott said. “I enjoy being a leader for this team.”
In the end, the Caps came up short in their state title quest, but it was a summer where a college player passed down his the tools of winning to the next class.
“When you come from a winning tradition,” Scott said, “you like to bring as much of that with you as you can. I think we’ve done a really good job of that here.”
Jaden will enjoy a couple of weeks off before starting fall workouts with the Mystics.
