LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - It's a great week for Lufkin senior Tin Enriquez. The Panthers are just two wins away from advancing to state. After he helps get the Pack a state title, Enriquez will get to play college baseball. He signed with Texarkana College on Monday. Enriquez credits his grandpa for getting him started with baseball at age three.
"Ever since I started, I love practicing and playing," said Enriquez. "Me and my grandpa always worked and hoped I would play college ball. Now we'll see how it goes."
Enriquez and the Panthers open the regional finals Thursday night against College Park at Sam Houston State. Game two is Friday.
