A Preview of Arvin High School's Baseball Team in 2021 The Arvin High School baseball team is ready to hit the field for the 2021 season. After a successful season last year, where they won their league title for the first time in school history, the team is eager to defend their title and make a run for the central section championship. We spoke with Coach Admin Admin about the team and their outlook for this season. Goals and Expectations Coach Admin Admin has set high goals for the team this year. “Our overall goals for the season are to compete against every team we play against and try to win our league title for the second year in a row,” he says. “We also want to win a central section championship as our ultimate goal.” The team is well aware of the tough road ahead but is determined to achieve these goals. Key Players The team has a strong core of returners who are expected to lead the way this season. “Jesus Aguilar is a 4-year varsity player who leads our pitching staff,” Coach says. “He has been our #1 starter for the last 2 seasons and comes in with plenty of experience on the mound.” Aguilar will be a crucial player for the team considering his pitching abilities and his leadership on and off the field. Mateo Alvarez, a 4-year varsity player, will be another key contributor to the team’s success. “He is our starting shortstop and leadoff hitter,” Coach explains. “He transitioned from catcher to shortstop last year and he is our igniter on offense.” Alvarez’s experience and versatility will be invaluable for the team. Jorge Parra, a 3-year varsity player, is also expected to play a vital role for the team this year. “He was our top offensive player last season while playing great defense at 3rd base and being one of our top pitchers,” Coach says. Parra’s leadership on the field and his ability to excel on both offense and defense will be crucial for the team’s success. Sophomore returner Roy Rosales is also someone to watch out for this season. “He ascended as the season went on as a pitcher and was a constant offensive presence in the lineup. He threw 9 innings, giving up 2 unearned runs in the quarterfinal playoff game,” Coach shares about Rosales’ impressive performance.
