FLORESVILLE -- Tiger infielder Garrett Pollok loves to play baseball. He loves the game so much, that he has constantly made sacrifices to stay on the field. On Nov. 9, the sacrifices he and his family have made over the years paid off, as he inked a deal to attend school and play baseball for the St. Mary’s University Rattlers.

For Garrett, the decision to attend St. Mary’s came easily. While other schools had expressed interest in his talents, he jumped at the opportunity to play for the Rattlers.

“I’m very excited,” he said. “It’s a good school and a good program. I’m pretty happy.”

While playing baseball has him the most excited, he is a bright student and is also looking forward to his time in the classroom. His favorite subject is math, and he plans to major in business.

When asked what he would miss most about leaving home for St. Mary’s, the senior smiled and thought for a while. He eventually verbalized that he would in fact miss his family, and even his little brother, Matthew, but he reminded them that he would probably still see them “every weekend.”

When he isn’t playing baseball, Garrett also likes to hunt and fish, and he is hoping those opportunities remain after he makes the move to San Antonio.

Garrett’s parents were excited about the opportunity, and quite pleased with his decision to attend a school so close to home.

“I’m excited, but sad to see he’s leaving,” Garrett‘s mom, Helen, said. “We love baseball, though, and we will enjoy watching him play at St. Mary’s. I’m glad he stayed close.”

“It’s a dream come true,” Helen said. “Our family has had to sacrifice a lot to get here, but it’s worth it.”

Looking ahead, Garrett believes he needs to get better at everything, and to keep working hard to perfect his game.

Garrett is a three-year varsity letterman who earned all-district honors in 2010 and 2011. He has a career batting average of .389, having hit 41 singles, 22 doubles, 2 triples, and a home run. He has scored 47 runs, and driven in another 30.
