Baseball: San Fernando has found its ace in sophomore Alonzo Garcia

Alonzo GarciaThere were some who wondered if San Fernando Coach Armando Gomez had lost his sanity when he proclaimed sophomore pitcher Alozo Garcia would be his ace without him having thrown a single varsity pitch.

Garcia, moving up from junior varsity, has done everything expected and more in the early season. He's 2-0 and has struck out 17 in 12 innings while allowing one run, three hits and walking four.

"He's hitting his spots and doing a great job locating his pitches," Gomez said.

Garcia is an A student who handles pressure as if he were a senior. He's scheduled to pitch in a Thursday night game against Cathedral at Birmingham.

Now it's up to Gomez to find a No. 2 pitcher to help the Tigers make a bid for a second consecutive City championships.
