Pima Community College baseball pitcher Adam Moraga, a former Sunnyside High School standout, signed his letter of intent to play collegiate baseball at the four-year university level program on Wednesday.
Moraga, a sophomore, will play for the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma, an NAIA program in Chickasha, Okla.
The right-hander threw a one-hitter in Tuesday’s start at Glendale Community College and is 5-2 with a 3.83 ERA. He has 42 strikeouts and 14 walks in 42 1/3 innings.
He pitched 54 innings last season and had a 2-6 record with a 3.17 ERA. He had 38 strikeouts and 14 walks.
Earlier this month, while pitching against highly-rated prospect Lucas Knowles of Central Arizona, Moraga’s fastball was clocked at 92 mph by professional scouts. Some scouts contacted Moraga after that appearance.
Moraga is a son of former Arizona third baseman Omar Moraga, who is presently a Sunnyside assistant coach.
