Hialeah, FL. - ASA Miami out-fielder Juan Teixeira had a fantastic freshman campaign this past season for the Silver Storm. Teixeira finished the 2017 season batting .388 with three home-runs and 47 runs batted in, leading the team in that category. Those numbers were good enough to earn him a spot on the 2017 NJCAA DII All-Region VIII team.
The Pembroke Pines native has been on the radar of several four-year schools, even before he decided to sign with ASA. However, at this point in time schools generally wait till after the MLB Amateur Draft, when they will have a better idea of what their incoming recruiting class will look like.
Teixeira will enroll at Florida International University during the Fall semester in 2017 with three years of eligibility remaning as a Sophomore.
