Dec. 10th, 2013

YUMA, AZ – Arizona Western College head baseball coach Drew Keehn announced this week that two of his players have signed early letter of intents to move on to play at four-year schools following this upcoming 2014 season.
Sophomore pitcher and outfielder Travis Garcia Perreira, has signed on to play ball at Grand Canyon University beginning in the spring of 2015.
Garcia Perreira batted .298 in 2013 with six RBI’s in just 47 plate appearances. On the mound, he led AWC with a 9-1 record and six complete games. Garcia Perreira struckout 53 batters and walked just 15 in his 90.1 innings of work.
The other Matador who signed early was sophomore pitcher Jose Rosales-Rodarte, who has chosen to play at Dixie State University in St. George, Utah in the spring of 2015.
Rosales-Rodarte went 4-5 with three saves in his 18 appearances last season. He tossed 55.1 innings and allowed just 21 runs, 16 of which were earned on 46 hits while walking 17 and striking out 36. He closed out his 2013 campaign with a miniscule ERA of 2.60.
“We are very excited to have Travis and Jose moving on after this spring; both deserve the opportunity to continue to play at the next level, said AWC head baseball coach Drew Keehn. “Travis had wide interest from around the country after posting a 9-1 record last year. He felt that Grand Canyon University academically and athletically was the challenge he was looking for.  Jose grabbed the opportunity to go to a perennial Division 2 power in Dixie State. Academically Jose will be able to pursue the degree he desires and step in and fill an immediate need for Coach Pfatenhauer on the mound.”
The Matador baseball season will kickoff following the winter break with practices to get ready for the upcoming 2014 season. The annual AWC Alumni game will be held on Saturday January 25th at 1pm. And finally, the Matadors regular season opener is scheduled for Friday January 31st in Henderson, Nevada against Salt Lake City College.
