June Bandit Birthdays:

Hampton and Heaton Hughes celebrated their 9th Birthday on June 8. Both are championship members of our 8U “Lil Bandits” who play in the 8U Sportspark Select Coach Pitch League. “Happy Birthday” to the Hughes twins Heaton and Hampton!

Jonathan Bustamante turned 27 on June 8. Jonathan was a four year varsity baseball player at Montwood High School. Jonathan was the # 1 starter for the Rams for two years. Bustamante earned 5A All-District recognition three years in a row and garnered All City honors his final two seasons. Jonathan is also a member of our 2002 Bandit National Finalist for whom he pitched and played both corner infield positions. His brother Jesse is a member of our 2000 National Finalist. Happy Birthday Jonathan!

Carter Salome turned 8 on June 12. Carter is one of the youngest members of our championship “Lil” Bandits 8U team which played in the 8U Sportspark Select Coach Pitch League. “Happy Birthday” Carter!

Bandit Esteban Martinez turned 23 on June 12. Esteban is a member of our 9 and Under Bandit State Championship squad. Esteban batted lead off and played center field. In 2014, Esteban earned District 2-4A First Team honors as a pitcher for Del Valle High School. He continued his athletic journey playing football and baseball at Sul Ross State University. “Happy Birthday” Esteban!

Bandit Brycen Horn turned 17 on June 15. Brycen started the year for our 2014 championship Bandits as one of two 12 year olds on the roster. Age was not a factor as Brycen emerged as the team’s top shortstop and a positive contributor for the offense. Brycen celebrated his birthday on the field at the USSSA State Tournament going 2X3, with a double, a run scored, an RBI, 3 defensive assists, 1 defensive put out and turned a double play with a diving stop catch of a line drive and throwing from his knees to double up the runner. Horn was one of the more naturally gifted athletes on the squad and is always a focal point in all the team’s practices and games. “Happy Birthday” Brycen.

Matt Guerra turned 18 on June 30. “Matty” who is also known as “Captain” or “Cap” for short was a relentless force on the baseball field. One of the greatest work ethics that any Coach could hope for is what Matt provides. A constant source of positive energy and drive and a will to do better and accomplish more are trademarks of his play. Matt has pitched, caught, played first base, third base and even helped in the outfield when needed as he did on the team’s tournament trip to Arizona. A power bat, a plus work ethic and a true great teammate. Just a “sheer pleasure” and joy to be around. Matt continued his baseball journey as a Catcher at Coronado High School where he earned All District honors his senior year. “Happy Birthday” Matt.
