Because of Wallace

Sophomore John Rodriguez is from Miami, Florida, plays shortstop for the Govs and is majoring in general studies with plans to graduate in the summer. Rodriguez was recently named player of the week by the Alabama Community College Conference.

“My favorite part of playing for Wallace is knowing that the people I have around me are really genuine and great people, not only the baseball team, but the whole entire Wallace community,” Rodriguez said. “I’ve created amazing friendships through baseball in my time here.”

Rodriguez said baseball means so much to him, and he’s glad that it brought him to Wallace.

“Baseball means fun to me. I just go out there every day and enjoy my teammates, coaches, and most of all the game,” he said. “Baseball has brought me many different places and I thank God he brought me here to Wallace.”

Attending Wallace has meant a lot to Rodriguez, who said he’s thankful he ended up here.

“Because of Wallace, I have been able to be my best self on and off the field. The staff and people of the Wallace community have been more than helpful and supportive,” he said. “Coming to Wallace was the best decision I could have ever made.”
