2017 Legacy Baseball Capsule


Head coach: Joey Lauria, first season

2016 record: 5-23-1 (0-18 Division I Sunset, 10th)

Returning lettermen (starters): Nine (six)

Top players: OF/P Donta Williams (Sr.), OF/P Anthony Lomeli (Sr.), IF/P Johnny Ball (Sr.), IF Willie Valdez (Sr.), IF Fabian Torres (Fr.)

Outlook: Lauria, a 2010 Legacy graduate and a standout with both the Longhorns and UNLV, returns to his alma mater and hopes to quickly rebuild a program that struggled last season and hasn’t made the postseason since Lauria last wore a Legacy uniform.

“With upgrades to coaches and players, we have expectations to bring Legacy back to a competitor,” Lauria said. “We are in a rebuilding process and feel very confident about it.”

Williams, an Arizona signee, missed last season with a knee injury but is back this year.

“He looks to have a strong senior season,” Lauria said. “Donta Williams, Anthony Lomeli and Johnny Ball, will lead the offense.”
