MIAMI | Three Belen Jesuit student-athletes signed their national letters of intent to play baseball at the collegiate level Nov. 13.

  • Christian Eiroa will play at Florida International University;
  • Roger Cainzos will play at Manhattan College; and
  • Alex Morales will play at Rutgers University. 

“We are thrilled and proud of each of these seniors who have been so committed to their game and worked so hard to get to this point in their lives,” said Jerry Albert, Belen's head baseball coach. “Each is headed to a program that is a perfect fit for their future, both on the field and in the classroom.” 

In general, over 7% of high school athletes (about 1 in 14) go on to play a varsity sport in college and less than 2% of high school athletes (1 in 54) go on to play at NCAA Division I schools.

“I am proud of our baseball players who, as true student-athletes, have achieved the Magis — both on the field and in the classroom. Congratulations to them as well as their families, coaches, and teachers who have supported their formation throughout their years at Belen,” said José E. Roca, principal.
