Baseball players are used to curveballs.
For former Santa Clarita resident Jacob Miller one curveball sent him to Afghanistan to serve as Marine.
Miller, a 2005 graduate from Canyon High School went from playing third base in Canyon Country to filling the same role at College of the Canyons.
Miller describes his Junior College baseball career as “good”, but wishes he could have played longer. That’s when the first of two curveballs appeared.
