The table in the physical education lecture hall at Mountain Pointe was filled with six baseball players on Thursday signing letters of intent.

Although two of the contingent will be playing golf in college.

Mike Anderson and Chris Felix didn't take golf seriously until reaching high school, giving up their love of baseball, to purse the links.

"They were scrawny little freshmen who grew into great young men," Tony Ramseyer. "Before high school neither one of them played golf and were baseball players. They transformed into tremendous golfers.

"The only thing I taught them is how to be responsible on the golf course and handle their emotions. Golf is a game of integrity and we couldn't ask for two better examples."

Anderson will be heading to Washington State to continue his career after averaging 34.9 per nine holes last season and Felix is off to Texas Pan American in Edinburg, Texas.

Senior golfers Ben Potter and Justin Hyden are expected to sign with Mesa Community College, according to Ramseyer.

Anderson and Felix were joined at the table by baseball players Anthony Balderrama (Mesa Community), Justin Tibbitt (Glendale Community), Jordan Kipper (Central Arizona Community) and Junior Zepeda (Central Arizona)."

"This is the best senior class I have ever had," Pride coach Brandon Buck said. "They put in the work, time and effort to have them in position to continue their careers at the next level. There is not much more I could ask from them."

Balderrama was proud to be part of the day that is becoming an annual tradition for the program.

"I love the coaches (at Mesa) and being so close to home," he said. "For all of us to be here together it is something special."
