Mauricio Jr. Flores is a junior at Westside High School. He plays for the Westside Junior Varsity Baseball Team as a pitcher, first basemen and right outfielder.  Mauricio has been playing baseball ever since he was 7 years old and was put into a Little League Baseball Team. He plans to continue his baseball career and play for the Houston Astros Baseball Team one day.

“I’ve been training through the summer and this fall too. I train about four to five times a week at home plus the workouts during seventh period. […] I’ve been training and practicing constantly because ,at the moment, I’m on the JV team for the fall, but I really am striving to get into the Varsity Team by the time the season actually starts in the spring.” Mauricio stated.

Another priority Mauricio has is school. He is taking AP college courses along with Pre-AP classes. Due to the rigorous courses he takes, Mauricio has to do a lot of time management inside and outside of school due to the plentiful homework he receives and baseball training. He strives to earn A’s and at least two B’s in every report card and to have an impressive SAT/ACT score.
