Zlatic heads for UC DavisLa Jolla High Senior Zac Zlatic has committed to play Division 1 baseball at UC Davis.
“I went to a baseball camp at Davis in the fall and immediately knew it was the school for me,” Zlatic said. “Fortunately they were looking for some help in the middle infield and are willing to give me a shot.”
A three-year starter in La Jolla’s middle infield, this season Zlatic is also being used as a closing pitcher.
Zlatic plans to major in economics.
