Lucas Mata moves to Mexico - signs with So Cal Bombers

Lucas Mata, one of the premier softball pitchers in the World has decided to move to Mexico and pursue his softball career from other than his homeland in Argentina. Mata feels he will be better positioned to compete and deal with the U.S. Visa problems he has encountered in the past, being closer to the North American softball scene. Mata was a member of World Champion County Materials team the past few seasons and was an All-

World pitcher in 2003 and 2005.


The Softball Federation of Mexico, the So Cal Bombers, and Ralph Trejo Jr. have been instrumental in assisting Mata with his move. He has arranged a long term lease in Ensenada in the Baja California area of Mexico and made arrangement with the Softball Federation to work for them as a pitching instructor. Living and working in a Spanish speaking setting works well for him and positions him to better pursue all avenues of his softball career.


In addition, the SoCal Bombers are pleased to announce his signing for the 2007 season and he will be with them for all events outside of the U.S. including the World Tournament in Kitchener later this year. If Lucas is able to acquire his U.S. Visa sometime later this year, he will join the Bombers at all events.
