“We haven’t decided,” Ruiz’s father, Rudy, told the L.A. Times as to whether his son would choose to miss three football games to play baseball. “He really wants to play football this year and start at quarterback. I don’t think he wants to let his team down.”
LA Times: Southern California is well represented among the 39 players selected for the USA Baseball U16 trials that will take place Sept. 25 through Oct. 6 in Houston. The team will end up being 20 players. Players were chosen based on their performances at tournaments in Florida and Arizona. Among the players selected are well-known high school standouts such as shortstop Rio Ruiz from La Puente Bishop Amat.
