Piedra Vista’s Dominic Moreno and other baseball news

Dominic Moreno, of Piedra Vista High School and the StrikeZone Cardinals, attended USA Baseball’s NTIS as a representative of the Mountain West region to compete for a spot with the U18 National Team.  He was not selected, but we all expect Dom to be one of the most heavily recruited players the 4-Corners region has ever produced.  He does everything well.  Low-90’s velocity with excellent command, a hammer breaker, and a highly advanced feel for a change with outstanding fade.

He will be hitting cleanup all year for PV just like he did nearly all of last year during the school’s title run.  He can play both corner spots adequately and is athletic enough to stay at third or move to right if called upon to do so.  Perhaps the most impressive part is the kid’s IQ.  He does very well in school and will probably finish as an Honor Grad.  He applies this intelligence to the game like no player his age I have ever met.  Someone is going to be very glad they signed Dominic Moreno.

Grinnell has another very impressive class of freshmen this year representing every corner of the country as well as the Midwest and Hawaii.  We all are expecting another run to the MWC title game.

Eli is headed to Albany, NY, this summer.  No word on where any of the other Cards are going to be yet.  Speaking of the Cards, Shane Woodson, one of our two 16’s last summer, has established himself as the premier striker in New Mexico AAAA this soccer season.  It will be very interesting to see which sport he eventually chooses.
