After a quarter-century of preparing ballplayers for opportunities in Major League Baseball, the Lamar Community College baseball program is now seeing one of its coaches make the jump from the Lopes to a Major League Baseball organization.

Assistant coach Eric Dorton, who also played one season for LCC, was hired by the Texas Rangers as a hitting coach for their rookie and instructional league teams.

"It is a dream come true," Dorton said.
