Eagles’ Teixeira to sign with Colorado Mesa
Arroyo Grande infielder Ryan Teixeira has committed to play baseball at Colorado Mesa, and will sign with the Division II powerhouse at a ceremony Wednesday at Arroyo Grande High.
Teixeira, who is also a starting linebacker on the football team which hosts Lompoc on Friday in the Southern Section Northern Division quarterfinals, hit .437 with two home runs, 11 doubles and 21 RBI last season while playing primarily third base for the Eagles.
The second team All-County selection will join former teammate and infielder Garrett Ball, who is in his freshman year with the Mavericks of Grand Junction, Colo.
Colorado Mesa won the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference this past year en route to finishing runner-up at the Division II World Series under longtime head coach Chris Hanks. According to a news release, Teixeira chose the Mavericks over Hawaii.
