Senior Juan Avila returns after hitting .288 with 30 RBI last season.
Dec. 5, 2012
Long Beach, Calif. - Season tickets are now on sale for the 2013 Long Beach State baseball season, which will see the Dirtbags host defending champions Arizona, Wichita State, USC, UCLA, and Cal State Fullerton in non-conference games before facing another strong Big West schedule, including new member Hawai'i.
The Dirtbags return seven starters, including senior All-Big West third baseman Juan Avila, as well as two second-team All-Big West pitchers in closer Kyle Friedrichs and reliever Jon Maciel, and an honorable mention starter in Ryan Strufing. Long Beach State was one game away from the Big West Championship a season ago, and features a strong recruiting class to supplement the veteran returners.
Long Beach State opens the home schedule on Tuesday, February 19 against Arizona, part of a two-game midweek series against the Wildcats.
