Shelton resident video-chats with major league pitcher

It is not every day that a student gets to shoot the breeze with a major leaguer.

However, Nick Halkowicz of Shelton, a student Eagle Hill Southport School, recently had the opportunity to interview Tampa Bay Rays starting pitcher Alex Cobb via video conference.

Alex and other students asked Cobb what it takes to become a Major League Baseball player. Cobb grew up in Florida and first made it to the majors in 2011.
