Chris Mokma exchanges a high-five during the 38th annual MHSBCA East-West All-Star Baseball Classic at Comerica Park in Detroit in June 2019.

Chris Mokma, a Holland Christian senior pitcher and Michigan State recruit, was taken in the 12th round of the 2019 MLB draft by the Miami Marlins. He didn’t have a contract but he was flying to Miami with his parents, Scott and Jennifer, hoping a deal would get done.
