The La Sierra baseball team plays the final game of their high school career. During their season, they had a Senior Day which is meant to show off the seniors for the last couple of games left in the season to celebrate the hard work and effort they have put into playing baseball for high school. They have had hard, grueling practices in the hot sun to make it far into CIF. There are currently seven seniors on the baseball team including Preston Anderson, Jesse Espinoza, Taer Rodriguez, Evan Corona, David Orozco, Michael Chagolla, and Sebastian Sanchez. These seniors have made a big impact on the underclassmen and share unique, long-lasting memories that they feel are their favorite. 

“Beating Romona in the series that we beat them in because they were our rivals since it has always been back and forth of them beating us and us beating them,” said senior Preston Anderson.

Knowing that the games have passed and the seniors are playing their final games, many of the underclassmen had some words to say to the seniors that are going off to start a new chapter in their lives. 

“Good luck, they are adults now. Next year, they will be of age and doing their own thing,” said freshman Nathan Chavez.

They are moving on from high school to pursue different things such as going to a college and possibly playing baseball for their new school, joining the military, or going into the workforce. After moving on from high school, they will have contributed to helping their fellow teammates and underclassmen get a better sense of high school life and showed them how to be an example at La Sierra.

“Thank you for taking me under your wing and teaching me different things,” freshman Nathan Chavez added. 

The seniors try to teach the underclassmen as much as they can before they graduate so that they could set good examples for the following students that will be coming in. Having fun comes from putting the work in when on the field and in school.

“Keep your grades up, it’s not that hard,” said senior Michael Chagolla. He adds, “it was fun to have a senior night,” making the work they put in worthwhile.
