Former LA pitcher to throw for Santa Fe

-A A +A

Baseball: Scott Berkebile makes it on to roster of new team

By Mike Cote

A former Los Alamos Hilltopper standout pitcher is taking the first step toward what he’s hoping is a career in pro baseball.
Scott Berkebile, a 2010 graduate of Los Alamos High School, has made it onto the roster of the Santa Fe Fuego, an expansion team in the Pecos League.
During his prep career, Berkebile was one of the most effective closers in 4A. Following his prep career, he tried out for the University of New Mexico baseball team, earning a spot, but left school before playing with the team.
Following that, Berkebile went to Phoenix hoping to further his baseball career when he heard about the Fuego’s tryout. Berkebile clocked 93 miles per hour on the radar gun during his tryout, which immediately cemented him a spot on the squad.
“I hadn’t played in a year before I threw that,” said Berkebile, who is currently working out with the Hilltopper baseball team. “I was surprised by 93. I was expecting in the mid-80s, and then sitting there (at the tryout) for three hours in 35-degree weather, I figured I’d be in the mid-80s.
The Fuego will begin Pecos League play in early May. Their home games will be at Fort Marcy Park.
