Speaking of HHS speakers, 2006 Hampshire High grad and future Major League Baseball star Jake Goebbert will be back in the area Sunday to give a talk about "The Role of Faith in Sports" at Cornerstone Church, on Russell Road just east of Muirhead Road in Plato Center. He will speak at both of the church's services, at 8:45 a.m. and 10:30 a.m.
The son of the folks who run Goebbert's Pumpkin Patch, Goebbert attended college before being drafted by the Houston Astros in the 13th round of the 2009 major league draft. Last summer, he played Single A ball for the Astros' Tri-City Valley Cats in Troy, N.Y.
