Steve Pastora just completed a Fall Season that his coaches and teammates will not forget. The very athletic Pastora gained high recognition from pro scouts and college recruiters throughout the Fall. In fact, one D1 recruiting coordinator said, "Mario, Pastora can actually be a D1 CLOSER!" The most impressive part of that comment is that Steve is a SS and not even a pitcher!
With 70 plate appearances, Steve led the Bercovich Scout Team with a .396 AVG, a team high 7 2B, was second in RBIs (13) and SBs (8) and led with a .515 OBP. He played great defense and also was a leader on the team, an ideal teammate. To cap it all off, Steven closed his season on the mound (he entered the Fall as a non pitcher and only threw 6 innings over 6 appearances) at Cal State East Bay by pumping fastballs at 88, 89, 90, 91 and 90! Steve has a bright future ahead of him, it is just difficult to tell which position he is best at because he can do it all!
