Carlos Texidor felt the tears coming on.
As soon as Kent State knocked the Miami baseball RedHawks from the 2018 Mid-American Conference Tournament last May, the senior shortstop knew it was his final time competitively playing the game he loves.
He started crying and hugging his teammates, thanking them for a great season.
Little did he know, he’d be back at the same tournament, with the same team, a year later.
Originally from Guayama, Puerto Rico, Texidor transferred to Miami after two years at Kaskaskia College in Centralia, Ill. He felt drawn to Oxford after just one visit.
