Round Rock catcher following father's footsteps

Tyler Pettit's dad was a catcher/pitcher for Cliff Gustafson at Texas.

ROUND ROCK, TEXAS - There is a tradition of winning on the field where the Round Rock Dragons play, and for Tyler Pettit it’s like father like son.

“He enjoyed his fast ball and he had a good curve ball,” Tyler said of his father, former Longhorn pitcher/catcher Doug Pettit. Doug played under Cliff Gustafson in the late 1980s and early 90s.

"Tyler is a spitting image of his dad,” said Dragons Coach John Carter. “You can kind of see that when they're walking by each other.”

Pettit recently landed an opportunity at Eastfield College in Dallas. Watch the video above to learn more.
