In 2010, a native of the Dominican Republic and a former player at Ferreira Baseball Academy, Edwin Gomez was awarded an athletic scholarship to attend Odessa College in the US. While at Odessa, Edwin excelled academically and athletically, being named All America in 2011 with a 3.8 GPA and leading the nation in batting average with .463. He was also a JUCO all star both years at Odessa.
In 2012, he received a full scholarship to attend division 1 Northwestern State University where he excelled on and off the field graduating with honors in 2013 and receiving a bachelor's degree. Although Edwin did not sign professionally, he was able to leverage baseball as a means to attain a college education and today is able to earn a decent living as a result of it.
We are extremely proud of Edwin.
