After a 7-4 win over the Mammoth Huskies on May 17, at the closing ceremony of league-play for the COVID-shortened season of the Bishop Broncos, 1st baseman, Ace Selters, made a special announcement.
Ace announced, to the cheers of fans, that he’s heading to UCLA after graduation. Although he’s not part of the school’s baseball program . . . yet . . . Ace hopes to get a walk-on try-out once he settles in as a Bruin.
AM1230 KBOV’s play-by-play announcer, Rock Baker, noted “Ace” is a great name for a baseball player. Congratulations Ace.
The school, and fans, were just as proud of two other seniors. Pitcher Landon Kruse will be a Warrior at Indiana Tech. Catcher Breaden Gillem will become a Titan at Ivy Tech in Fort Wayne, IN. Both boys will be playing in their school’s baseball program.
A great group of senior athletes! Bishop Proud!
The Broncos have two more non-league games remaining – Thursday, May 20 @ the Rosamond Roadrunners, and Tuesday, June 1 vs. the Boron Bobcats. The June 1 game will be broadcast live on AM 1230 KBOV. Game time 3:15 p.m.
