Victor Valley gets a shot at the Mavericks

The Victor Valley College baseball team will play an exhibition game at 7:05 Tuesday at Stater Bros. Stadium against the High Desert Mavericks, the Seattle Mariners High-A affiliate of the California League.

Part of the proceeds will go toward the schools baseball program. About $4,000 was raised last year.

It’s really a lot of fun, Rams coach Bob Smith said. Our guys enjoy playing against the pros and the kids come and have a great time. They don’t know the difference. They’re just having fun.

Smith said freshman Louis Martus (Sultana HS) would probably start but he plans to use a handful of pitchers.

The Rams are coming off a doubleheader sweep of Mt. San Jacinto on Saturday. They are eld by sophomores Blane Lloyd and Luke Mullinax.
