Scotty McCreery‘s high school baseball career came to an end Friday night when North Carolina’s Garner High Magnet School was eliminated in the playoffs. Scotty came in as a relief pitcher for the last five innings.

Scotty had to miss his junior year while competing on American Idol. As for saying goodbye to his high school baseball days, Scotty tells Raleigh’s News & Observer, “You’re only 18 once and I wanted to be with my friends. I just wish we could have played a little big longer.”

Scotty flew to Nashville Saturday for a performance on the Grand Ole Opry. He joined Brad Paisley onstage to sing “Celebrity” and also delivered his latest single, “Water Tower Town.”
