Jorge Ontiveros Head Baseball Coach East Chicago Central


East Chicago Central Baseball

East Chicago Central Baseball Philosophy It is our philosophy that the team will be well conditioned, fundamentally sound in basic techniques and be well disciplined in offensive and defensive team strategies. Our offensive team will be aggressive both at the plate and on the base paths. We also want to make things happen by putting pressure on the defense. As a defensive team, we will need to eliminate mental mistakes and prevent our opponents from having a big inning. We must also work together toward a common goal: To be successful on and off the diamond. We must conduct ourselves in a positive manner whether we win or lose but never forgetting that a victory is our main objective. Although we cannot win them all, an honest effort to do our best each and every game will be our goal.

Congratulations to 2011 ECC Alumni Playing Collegiately

Erik Romo

The members of the East Chicago Central Cardinals Baseball program WILL take pride in the fact that they belong to something special, - an athletic team that is representative of our school, our city and themselves.

2012 Early Season Pictures

Jordan DeJesus FR-3B/C


2012 OUTLOOK

Up and Coming this Year

The 2012 season will be an experience building year for the Cardinals. The infield will look a bit different with three year starters Erik Romo, Anthony Serna II and Gilberto Ibarra all graduating in 2011. Also graduating was Angelo Rosas-Badillo a strong centerfielder that has continued his baseball career at the College of Lake County in Illinois. Fourth year head coach Jorge Ontiveros will have to be patient with his young team. Although it is an inexperienced group of ball players, Coach Ontiveros is eager to develop the skills needed to be able to compete at a high level. Great baseball experience in the summer for the sophomore class has kept Coach Ontiveros and his staff optimistic. East Chicago Central baseball in 2012 will be young and inexperienced. The infield will be led by four year starter and senior Adrian Alvarez at shortstop. Second base will have some talent with junior transfer student Adam Campos. His backup will Head Coach be versatile sophomore Luis Rodriguez and junior Jorge Ontiveros Mathew Clark. At 3B, junior Isaiah Pena will lead the team with an impressive .299 and 19 RBI’s in 2011. Finally at 1B, sophomore D’Angelo Gonzalez will be starting switching with Pena when he pitches. The outfield will be young and speedy with three year starting senior Luis Perez solidifying the middle. New to the OF this year are two speedy and potent players. Sophomores Reyes Maldonado and Carlos Garcia will be at the corners. Behind the plate will be senior Isidoro Quiroga. Freshman Jordan DeJesus will see some time Adrian Alvarez behind the plate as his backup.
