HOLLYWOOD, FL – July 1, 2008, Robert Lara, a 6’2 205 lbs pitcher out of University of Central Florida has signed with Dynasty Athlete Representation, LLC. Lara was selected in the 19th round by the San Diego Padres in the 2008 MLB Amateur Draft and is currently playing for the Arizona League affiliate. Through five games with the club, Lara is batting .500 with a home-run and six RBIs. In his very first at bat with the Padres, he smacked a home-run.
Robert Lara was destined to be a Dynasty client. He graduated from Nova High School, which is the same school that Dynasty CEO, Darren Heitner, attended. At Nova, Lara led the school to a state title in 2005, a team that was ranked No. 1 nationally in the final USA Today poll. He shed the green and gold jersey of Nova High only to come back to his roots and don the proud colors of Dynasty.
Lara was drafted in the 17th round of the 2005 MLB Draft by the Minnesota Twins. He opted to decline signing and spent a couple of years playing at LSU before transferring to UCF for his junior year. Robert was selected to the Johnny Bench Award Watch List due to his strong catch and throw skills along with his consistency in putting up good at-bats. He now joins the San Diego Padres organization and is excited about what the future has in store.
