Who Comes to Eastern?

Growing up, CLAY ROMERO dreamed of playing college baseball. His wish came true—right in his own backyard. Clay, a catcher on the EAC team, loves playing for the hometown fans. “We have great crowds at our games. People who live here have been to EAC and want to give back. I’d love to play Division I ball—and playing here gives me a shot at that.” He’s also enjoying academic life. “You take things a lot more seriously in college. You know it’s moving you toward a career. Plus, there’s tons of stuff to do here, and you know everyone on campus.” His out-of-town friends feel at home too, Clay reports. “The faculty and students try to get everybody together and into things. Everyone is equal—the teachers don’t put themselves ‘above’ you, and they don’t treat anyone differently.” Aiming for a career in law enforcement, Clay plans to join a police department or the Border Patrol for a few years, before going on for his bachelor’s degree—unless he nabs a university baseball scholarship. “That would be a great way to finish my education!”
