Trent Higginbotham

Stingers add former Twins’ minor leaguer


WILLMAR — It’s not often a Northwoods League team has a chance to sign a former professional baseball player, but the Willmar Stingers have done just that for 2014 with Montevallo pitcher Trent Higginbotham.

Higginbotham, who was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in 2011 and played for their Gulf Coast League affiliate in Fort Myers, Fla., in 2012, was able to leave pro ball and retain his NCAA eligibility.
