Jaime Perez, Marcus Rodriguez and Ben Dunavant wait for their game to start. Ram Baseball Club is a new addition to ASU.

The Ram Baseball Club officially began its season in a double header on Nov. 12 against University of Texas at San Antonio and Tarleton State University.

The team lost against UTSA 9-3 and TSU 5-0.

"I think we did pretty well against them," Adam Hicks, sophomore said. "We could hit a little bit better, but that’s about it. I like the way that we are playing. We look good for the season."

"We could improve offensively," Chris Mcentire, sophomore, said. "This is the first time that I have played with the team, and I think that we gel really well. These guys know how to get out here and have a good time. We might have lost, but it was fun."

Jaime Perez, junior, founded the organization this year.

"It’s more than a game," Perez said. "Baseball is a lifestyle we were blessed to grow up with. We did not want to give up on our dreams. We wanted to continue living the lifestyle we loved. We want to show and encourage kids to never give up on their dreams, to keep chasing them no matter what challenges they may face."

Their main goal for this season is to win the World Series in Oklahoma next spring and to win a championship.

To keep up with them on social media their Instagram is @asu_baseball_club, and Twitter is ASU Baseball Club.

The next home game is against Tarleton at the San Angelo Texas Bank Sports Complex on Feb. 18 at noon and Feb. 19 at 3 p.m.
