TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

CDO grad Scott Hairston is about to embark on what he hopes will be his 12th Major League Baseball season.

Hairston is currently a free agent after playing 61 games last season with the Washington Nationals.

Hairston hit a career-high 20 home runs two seasons ago with the New York Mets but has combined to hit just 11 the last two seasons.

He's played 923 games in the big leagues since coming up with the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2004.

Our David Kelly caught up with Hairston at Shelley Duncan's Tucson Youth Baseball Association camp.
