Throughout a standout prep career at Santa Cruz High and through four years at Saint Mary’s, the Santa Cruz Sentinel has always done a great job of keeping tabs on one of its local standouts, Gaels first baseman Collin Ferguson. So, it came as no surprise that the paper took the time to chat with the Gaels’ senior after his incredible weekend at Utah Valley. Sentinel sportswriter Juan Reyes asked Ferguson about the first 16 games of the season and what the team expects moving forward in this week’s County Connections spotlight.
Ferguson and the Gaels start West Coast Conference play this weekend when they host Pacific for three games at Louis Guisto Field. Game one is scheduled for a 3 p.m. first pitch on Friday, and both Saturday and Sunday games will begin at 1 p.m. Tickets are available by clicking the Tickets link on SMCGaels.com or by calling the SMC Athletic Ticket Office at (925) 631-GoTx.
