BASEBALL IS LIFE TO ROBERTO GARCIA.
The Aldine Davis righty, whose favorite pitch is his slider, has relished the opportunity to pitch in his senior season after watching the Class of 2020 get everything taken away.
VYPE: How did this season go for you?
GARCIA: "It went great. I just had quality start after quality start. Just dominated and it was just fun."
VYPE: What got you into baseball?
GARCIA: "I've been playing since I was like three or four years old. My dad really put me on it. I'd watch the Astros anytime they were on TV and just love every aspect of it. The teammates, getting to travel, beautiful stadiums, everything."
VYPE: Who is your favorite Astro of all-time?
GARCIA: "Jose Altuve."
VYPE: What has this journey from the days of T-Ball to now meant to you?
GARCIA: "It means everything. Every time when I wake up, especially when I was younger, I'd go play baseball and have fun. Now, it's turning into my life. Hopefully, I get to go play college ball and work my butt off to earn a spot in maybe professional ball."
VYPE: Being a senior this year, what is a piece of advice you would have given yourself as a freshman?
GARCIA: "Enjoy it and don't take any of it for granted because it can go away in a heartbeat."
