Biggest sports thrill: Hitting the game-tying home run against (Kingman) Lee Williams to keep us alive in the playoffs last year.

Best advice ever received: “You’re not granted respect, it’s earned.”

Performance review: Through seven games, Barreras is batting .714 (15 for 21) with two doubles, three triples, seven RBIs and 18 runs scored.

Coach’s comments: “Emilio has had an outstanding week for us, as well as the team. Emilio had some real good quality at-bats and his stats reflect that. We look forward to having Emilio for an entire season this year.” — Vista Grande coach Harley Grigg
