Former Indians pitcher Brandon Petix named to all-star game

Former Port Neches-Groves and current Alvin Community College pitcher Brandon Petix will join the top junior college players from Texas and New Mexico for the Texas-New Mexico Junior College Baseball Coaches Association All-Star Weekend.

Activities will take place at Abilene Christian University on Friday and Saturday. The showcase game has been held since the 1980s.

“I am honored to represent Alvin Community College in this All-Star game,” Petix said. “This is an excellent opportunity for me to play some really good baseball players from all around Texas. I look forward to meeting and competing with players from other teams that we will be playing in the upcoming season.”

The All-Star Weekend gives players a chance to compete in front of four-year university coaches and major-league scouts from coast to coast. Four conferences from the NJCAA will be represented.

The players from each conference have selected the top players to face off in the All-Star Weekend.
