The FUHS baseball team (2-2) will play against Troy High School at the annual Angels baseball game on April 24 at 6:30 p.m. at Angels Stadium. Tickets are free.

Because the FUHS team lost the game last year, most of the team is looking for a shot at redemption, and revenge, especially senior Raul Herrada.

“[This game] means a lot, just because Troy beat us last year, and we have to get revenge on them this year,” Herrada said.

Herrada is looking forward to facing his rivals one last time, hoping for a victory his senior year.

“I want to go out with a win, and at Angels stadium, I feel like it will be a good way to end [my high school career],” Herrada said.

Although playing at a professional stadium seems intimidating, Herrada is unphased by the challenges that it holds.

“I’ll just take playing at Angels Stadium like another game, try not to think about it too much, and just play baseball,” Herrada said.

Senior Paul Lee transferred from Troy his junior year, and this will be the second time he faces off against his old team.

“I’m excited because I transferred from Troy, first of all, so I look forward to playing them every time, and also it’s a once in a lifetime experience playing at Angels Stadium,” Lee said.

Playing in a professional stadium inspires Lee to work hard so he play there in the future.

“It inspires me to be a better baseball player because I hope I can play at Angels Stadium one day in the future.” Lee said.

The FUHS baseball team hopes to play a good game against their rivals, so make sure to come out on April 24 to watch our Indians play at Angels Stadium.
