Pirate makes All Tournament Team

The San Leandro High School varsity baseball team traveled to the central valley to play in the Atwater Easter Baseball Tournament. Schools from all over the State gathered for four days of  tournament play for some of the best hardball around. The road trip proved to be a great learning and winning experience for the young pirates. The Pirates finished with a respectable 2-2 record and Diego Rojas was named to the All Tournament.

Diego favorite food is barbecue and he likes to relaxes to classical music. No girl friend, but in his words he’s, single and ready to mingle.

Coach Mike Bungarz calls Diego a natural leader who has the respect of his peers and his coaches, “Diego leads by example, conducts himself with pride  on the field and off.”
