It’s been a rough ride indeed this season for the Luna Community College baseball program, but for embattled head coach Peter Ortiz, the ride is over.
Luna officials on Wednesday afternoon announced Ortiz has been fired effective immediately, with assistant coach Antonio Siqueiros taking over for the remainder of the season.
LCC spokesman Jesse Gallegos said the college will not comment on the reasons for Ortiz’s termination because it is a personnel matter. And Ortiz has not responded to the Optic’s requests for an interview.
