Corey Seager's high school team broke the news that the Dodgers finally called him up

2015 may already be remembered as the Year of the Prospect(s), but amazingly, one of the most coveted of them all remained in the Minor Leagues -- Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager, a first-round pick in the 2012 Draft and MLB.com's current No. 2 prospect.

But rejoice, for the day has finally come: L.A. has called Seager up to the Show before their series against the Padres. The baseball world has been waiting for this day for a long time now, so naturally the news was broken by the plugged-in reporter known as ... uh, Northwest Cabarrus High School?

 

 

Yes, Corey Seager's alma mater -- a school of about 1,800 located in Concord, North Carolina -- really did fire off the first tweet announcing the move. Apparently Twitter insider John Axford has given baseball media back to the people.
