ATHENS, TEXAS – Luce Prospect Michael Alvarado has accepted a scholarship to play baseball at Western Oklahoma State University. Alvarado currently plays right field for Athens High School in Texas, which is about 3 hours southeast of Dallas.
Alvarado says he’s worked to prepare himself for college baseball for as long as he can remember. He signed with LPG in August 2017 as a junior and, despite being two hours away from the LPG offices in McKinney, TX, frequently traveled to trainings in the DFW area.
“The travel was all worth it, and it was always something I looked forward to,” Alvarado said. He added that after training with LPG he could see “major improvement.” Further, Alvarado said that he learned valuable lessons from LPG CEO, Jake Luce. “Michael’s work ethic has been off the charts since Day 1,” Luce said. “He trusted in the process, our team at LPG, and was ultimately rewarded with a college baseball scholarship. We couldn’t be happier for him.”
