Former La Roche First Baseman, George Nahay, has been invited to Spring Training with the White Sands Pupfish of the Pecos League. The Pupfish are located in Alamogordo, New Mexico and play teams from New Mexico, Western Texas, and Southern Colorado.
Nahay is the first La Roche graduate to play professional baseball. He enjoyed a record-breaking career with the Redhawks and was named to the AMCC All-Conference team four times. Nahay finished his four years as the schools leader in hits, home runs, RBIs, and doubles.
Last season alone, the Pecos League promoted forty-three players to higher independent leagues and affiliated leagues, including sixteen by the Pupfish.
Former Pupfish, Adam Osteen, had his contract purchased by the Arizona Diamondbacks and Chris Smith and Jack Ramsey both currently play for the Washington Wild Things.
