East's Garcia, Verduzco to play baseball at UHV
Victoria East graduates Gabe Verduzco and John Garcia will play baseball at Riverside Stadium again next season.
Verduzco and Garcia signed letters-of-intent on Tuesday to play at the University of Houston-Victoria.
Verduzco is expected to play in the outfield and Garcia is likely to pitch and play third base for the Jaguars.
Garcia, who transferred from Calhoun before his senior season, was a first-team all-District 30-4A selection at third base.
He had only 24 plate appearances but hit .350 with two home runs, two doubles and six RBIs.
Garcia had a 6-4 pitching record with a 4.67 ERA and 58 strikeouts in 48 innings.
Verduzco earned honorable mention all-district after hitting .320 with one triple, seven doubles and 22 RBIs.
