Moapa Valley Progress
Moapa Valley High School senior, Chase Guesman, will continue to play Baseball after he graduates this spring. Guesman has signed a letter of intent to play junior college Baseball at Gray Harbor Community College in Aberdeen, Washington.
Last year, as a junior, Guesman hit for a batting average of .315 with 3 doubles, 3 triples and a homerun. He had 21 stolen bases, 12 RBI’s and scored 41 times on a Pirate team that finished the season with a 22-11 record.
The Pirates won the Sunrise last year. But they were beaten by Boulder City in the regional final.
Guesman plans to major in physiology while in college. He will play this year as a senior for Moapa Valley High School then travel to Washington state to start his college career.
“It’s been a dream of mine to play college ball since fourth grade,” Guesman said.
He first met the coaching staff of Gray Harbor after a baseball tournament this year. Guesman has played baseball since he was nine years old and played on a travel team run by Steve Bennet, Steve Stalie, Ben Cornwall and Jeff Longman.
“I want to thank my parents for all the time, money and commitment they have given me, “said Guesman. “I’d also like to thank all of my travel ball coaches. They all have shaped me into the player I am today. I owe a lot to these people, without them I would be nowhere near the place I’m at now.”
Guesman also expressed thanks to former MVHS head coach, Ed McCann.
Guesman will play in the outfield at Gray Harbor.
