EL PASO, TEXAS (KTSM) – Montwood ace pitcher Jesus Tovar will play in the Texas High School Baseball Coaches Association All-Star Game, it was announced on Monday.
Tovar, a senior committed to the University of New Mexico, was electric on the mound for the Rams in 2021. He led them to a District 1-6A championship, a Bi-District round victory over San Angelo Central, and his performance in game one of the Area round against defending state champion Southlake Carroll pushed the Rams to within one win of a Regional Quarterfinal berth.
The THSBCA All-Star Game will be held on June 20 at Dell Diamond in Round Rock, the home of the Triple A Round Rock Express.
There are a trio of Borderland baseball teams still alive in the Texas state playoffs as the Regional Quarterfinals get underway later this week.
