Luke Aragon and many of his Robertson baseball teammates had plenty of time to consider how the Sandia Prep Sundevils ended their deep postseason run last May.
So when new RHS coach Tony Renon learned those same Sundevils would be his Cardinals’ opponent in the season-opening Socorro tournament last week, he asked Aragon where he wanted to play.
“He said, ‘I want the ball,’” Renon recalled. And Renon complied, letting a revenge-minded Aragon have the pitching start.
It didn’t turn out too badly for the Redbirds.
