Bonita High School’s Justin Garza was the area’s top baseball pitcher this past spring.
His efforts earned him a scholarship to one of the top college programs in the country after the senior to be committed to Division national power Cal State Fullerton.
Garza, who is expected to be one of the top pro prospects next season, had arguably one of the top seasons in area history. He earned CIF-Southern Section All-Division 3 and was Tribune All-Area after going 13-0 with 75 strikeouts and a softball-like ERA of 0.51. He helped Bonita reach the division semifinals for the second consecutive season.
Garza joins a Fullerton team, which won the Big West title and advanced to the NCAA regionals. Fullerton has won four College World Series.
