The 2nd Annual GARB Athletics/OC Sports Southern Arizona High School All-Star Series presented by the Kino Baseball League concluded Friday night at Catalina Foothills High School.
About four dozen baseball standouts from Southern Arizona took part in the Division III-V futures game with Team Teal coming away with a 9-2 win over Team Copper. Former Desert Christian head coach Grant Hopkins led Team Copper and Catalina head coach Shane Folsom was in charge of Team Teal.
Teal plated three runs in the top of the first inning to take a lead the team would never give up. Amphitheater standout Max Leon and Pueblo standout Isaias Lucero hit back-to-back singles and Jesus Lopez (Pueblo) followed with a double to being in both runners.
