Baseball: Alex Vesia Captures All-West Region Honors
Submitted By Stephen Connolly
Cal State East Bay senior Alex Vesia is a 2018 consensus All-Region selection as he continues to rack up postseason accolades. The left-hander was voted First Team All-West Region by the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA) and Second Team All-West Region by the Division II Collegiate Commissioners Association (CCA).
This is the second career All-Region award for Vesia, who also earned the distinction as a sophomore. He is a three-time All-CCAA selection, and last week at CSUEB's annual Student-Athlete Awards, he was named 2017-18 Male Athlete of the Year. The Alpine, Calif. native became Cal State East Bay's all-time leader in career wins (24), strikeouts (249), and innings pitched (313.2). He also boasts the 10th-best career ERA in program history at 3.01.
Vesia has a strong chance to become the fourth CSUEB player in the CCAA era to be selected in the Major League Baseball Draft, which takes place June 4.
