Jake Hernandez and Logan Reid – senior season

  Jake Hernandez is a CT baseball catcher and first baseman committed to a D3 school. Logan Reid is a varsity pitcher and first baseman committed to a D1 school. Hernandez and Reid have experienced high school baseball together for all four years. Both players shared experiences of their previous and upcoming careers.

  Logan Reid is committed to the University of Houston, he states, “I kind of always felt like I wanted to play at the next level. Watching my dad play showed me I wanted to play at the next level.” said Reid.

  Jake Hernandez is committed to play at the College of St. Scholastica in Minnesota, he wanted to play at a higher level ever since he was young, “I knew I wanted to play at the next level when I saw Jose Martinez backflip in game five of the MLB In 2015, because, eventually, I wanted to be in that same position.” said Hernandez.

  Hernandez and Reid share similar goals which they hope to accomplish, “Win the state championship. I mean, we finished third two years ago, and second last year, so I guess this year we want to bring it home with first place.” said Reid, while Hernandez agreed.

  Hernandez’s best experience was, “when we went to the Ronald McDonald House to donate gifts and toys to charity. And then after spending time with the team at Boondocks and having a fun time with everybody,” said Hernandez.

  Reid explained his best experience was last year’s state run.  They went 4 and 6 in the tournament, losing to Rock Canyon but returning to beat them in the semi-finals and ultimately taking Valor to the championship for second overall. “It’s like going on a crazy run like that was pretty insane,” said Reid.

  This season Hernandez and Reid are hoping to finish this final season together on a high note by getting a first-place state title.
