George West Longhorn sophomore Xavier Paiz received training from Major League Baseball coaches and got some quality playtime against some of the best baseball players in the country at the Under Armour Baseball Factory National camp in Costa Mesa, Calif. 
In order to participate, Paiz first had to receive an invitation to try out after playing a huge role in the Horns’ success last season where he received honorable mention catcher honors as a freshman along with sporting a .340 batting average and recording over 140 put outs from behind the plate. His contributions helped the Horns in the District 31 championship and in the playoff run to regional quarter finals.
At tryouts, Paiz had to out-perform more than 1,000 participants all trying to make the 50-man roster’s cut to attend the camp. 
While at the training, Paiz received strategic training at his primary position, catcher, and also picked up some quality training in other phases of the game. All the players that attended the camp had the opportunity to experience the college life while residing in the dorms at Vanguard University, as well as a trip to a LA Dodgers game. 
Paiz was humbled to receive the invitation and would like to thank the following volunteers who helped make this trip possible: James Schroeder (Choctaw Lease Service), Danny Escobar (Escobar & Sons-Desoto), Roy Bob Bartlett, Mark Katzfey, Monte Lyne, Ruben Saenz (Saenz Construction) Adolfo and Irma Guerrero, Santana and Oralia Paiz, Joe and Loretta Feist.
