Baseball: Michael Hoard signs with Arizonaby Andy Morales on Nov. 14, 2012, under Sports
Salpointe senior first baseman Michael Hoard has finally put his name to the University of Arizona. The 2012 All-State and Southern Arizona Player of the Year had long ago committed to be a Wildcat but it is always nice to have it in writing.
Hoard batted .420 last year with the Lancers with 49 RBIs, 17 doubles, 5 triples and 8 homeruns.
Hoard is sure to be drafted in the upcoming MLB draft so his options are still wide open. He did represent the Cincinnati Reds in club action this past summer.
