FALL LEAGUE SCHEDULE
The Dave Westberry Fall League will begin varsity play on Wednesday, Sept. 27, and will have Southwest play 16 games before the playoffs begin. All the games will be road games to avoid damage to the new Bermuda grass infield at Andre Dawson Field. The junior varsity will play 12 games starting Sept. 30. Both schedules are here.
2 SENIORS MAKE COLLEGE COMMITMENTS
Senior middle infielders Danny Cruz and Erick Orbeta have committed to colleges. Cruz, a shortstop, will play at Division I Marshall University, where former teammate Rey Pastrana now plays. Second baseman Orbeta has accepted an offer from Hillsborough Community College in Tampa, a school that has produced 14 big leaguers.
FOUR EAGLES SIGN WITH COLLEGES
Four seniors from the class of 2017 have signed with colleges. Outfielder Daniel DeLeon will play for Montreat College in North Carolina. The Cavaliers are an NAIA school and play in the Apalachian Athletic Conference. Outfielder Justin Worley signed with ASA College in Miami and first baseman Brett Mantrana is heading to St. Thomas University, where his uncle used to be the head coach. Outfielder Junior Moralobo will be playing for Keiser University in West Palm Beach. The Seahawks advanced to the NAIA World Series this season. Congratulations to all four players for continuing their careers at the next level.
