Central Valley's Mikie Lopez will compete against Ceres High's Adrian Lujan and Ricky Lopez when the trio participates in the 27th Annual Modesto Sunrise Rotary Baseball Classic Saturday night at Stanislaus State.

Mikie, a senior, will suit up for the West team.

"He's definitely deserving of the honor," Hawks head coach Derrick Goblirsch said. "He had two great years for us. I'm excited to see how he performs."

Adrian and Ricky, who are both juniors, will play for the East squad.

"They're both excited," Bulldogs head coach Clinton Goblirsch said. "They're looking forward to it. A lot of their family members and friends are going to go and support them. I'm going to try to make it to the game."

Mikie contributed at third base and pitcher during his final season with Central Valley, which compiled an 11-14-1 overall record and tied for fourth place with Ceres High in the Western Athletic Conference standings (3-9).

He batted .269 with one double, 18 RBIs, 15 runs and seven walks. Mikie posted a 2-6 record with a 4.06 ERA, 47 strikeouts, one shutout, two complete games and one save on the mound.

Lujan started at first base for the Bulldogs, who went 11-15-0 on the year.

He batted .449 with three homers, eight doubles, 19 RBIs, 18 runs and nine walks.

Adrian committed just four errors on defense.
"He was our best hitter," Clinton Goblirsch said.

Ricky was a super-utility player. He logged playing time at pitcher, catcher, third base and shortstop during the regular season.

He batted .289 with one triple, seven doubles, 25 RBIs, 16 runs and 14 walks.

He had a 3-4 record with a 2.56 ERA, 29 strikeouts and three saves on the mound.

"Ricky had high expectations for himself," Clinton Goblirsch said.
