Colorado Mesa’s Kyle Serrano watches the flight of the ball off his bat during a game earlier this season. Serrano, a sophomore, leads the Mavericks in hitting this season.

EVERYDAY PLAYER

No matter the position, Serrano is in CMU’s lineup

Kyle Serrano made the trip to Cary, North Carolina, last May with the Colorado Mesa baseball team.
He didn’t get to suit up. He wasn’t allowed in the dugout. He sat in the stands, cheering on his teammates as they came up one run shy of winning the national championship.
“It was kind of a slap in the face,” Serrano said about being left off the game roster. “I wasn’t offended, I knew I didn’t have a starting spot, I was a backup. When he told me I wasn’t on the trip, I was bummed out, knowing I wasn’t going to be there experiencing it with the team, but I understood. I wasn’t the guy they needed on the bench.”
He’s still not the guy the Mavericks need on the bench — they need him on the field.
