Gavin Alvarez and Sean Farrell Signing NLIs with Ranger College

Alvin High School seniors Sean Farrell and Gavin Alvarez signed National Letters of Intent (NLIs) to play on baseball scholarships at Ranger College. The signing ceremony was held at Alvin High School on May 26 with approximately 100 attendees.

Earlier in the year, Alvin Baseball senior Gunner Olszewski signed an NLI scholarship offer with Bemidji State University.

Alvin High School and the entire Alvin community wishes all three players success at the next level. If they continue to play with the drive and determination that they brought to the field at Alvin, they and their teams will exceed expectations.

Nathan Eovaldi Debuts

Nathan Eovaldi wins his MLB debut Saturday, August 6 in a 5-3 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks. The 6’3, 195 lbs pitcher, drafted as a senior from Alvin High School, was called up by the Dodgers from AA Chattanooga Friday, August 5 to start Saturday’s game against the Diamondbacks.

He wasted no time in the first inning, retiring the side in order with two strike outs and a ground out. It was a night of firsts with Eovaldi getting his first MLB hit in his first MLB plate appearance with a single to right field off of Arizona pitcher Joe Saunders, a hit which resulted in his first run.

Throwing fastballs in the mid to high 90s and mixing in sliders to keep the hitters off balance, Eovaldi recorded seven strike outs in five innings of work, the fourth-most in Dodgers history for a pitcher making his debut.

Eovaldi is scheduled to start Friday in his home debut in Los Angeles against the Houston Astros at 9:10 pm.
