The Elite Baseball Series at the UC Irvine Anteater Ballpark began this afternoon. This year’s EBS features 40 of the top high school prospects from California. Today’s workout was the first of the weekend and the Black team came prepared; defeating the Blue team 7-2. Two players rose above the rest, earning them the Elite player of the game award. Starting pitcher for the Black team, Davis Tominaga of Mater Dei High School threw 3 scoreless innings with 2 strikeouts and only 1 hit. Also on the Black squad, leading the offensive attack was Logan Roberts from El Toro High School. He went 2 for 3 on the day with a walk, single, triple and a run scored.
