Joining teammate Trevor Scott in North Adams all the way from the Golden State, junior infielder Garrett Tuck will represent UC San Diego in the Berkshires in 2013.
Helping the Division II Tritons finish the year 26-24, Tuck started 48 games and chipped in 32 hits and scored 27 runs with seven doubles and 16 RBI as a junior. The right-handed hitter also went 3-for-4 in stolen bases. Starting primarily at short or third base, Tuck was selected to the Tino Martinez Award watch list and was a NCBWA Preseason All-West Region First Team member after earning All-West Region honors as a sophomore while helping the Tritons reach the NCAA West Regional Tournament.
Last summer in the Jayhawk League, Tuck batted .250 for the Haysville (Kan.) Heat , helping Haysville win a third straight National Baseball Congress (NBC) Midwest Regional and tied for ninth at the NBC World Series.
The son of Scott and Kristin Tuck, Garrett has two younger brothers, Cameron and Ryan, and is pursuing a degree in economics.
