It wasn't exactly the way Imperial High School's Stewart Harvey expected to end his high school baseball career.
It was better than he expected.
In the inaugural East/West high school senior all-star game Saturday, Harvey finished 2-for-2 with a triple, three RBIs, four runs, two stolen bases and two walks in leading the West to a 9-6 victory at Imperial High School.
The game featured some of the Imperial Valley's best high school senior baseball talent, with a West team made up of players from Brawley Union, Calipatria, Imperial and Southwest taking on an East squad of players from Calexico, Central Union, Holtville and Vincent Memorial high schools.
"It was a really good way to go out, especially this being the last high school baseball game we all played in," said the 17-year-old Harvey, who played second base and was the West's lead-off hitter. "I really didn't expect to do that well offensively. Every inning in that game you're facing a team's No. 1 pitcher, so that makes things a little tougher."
