Bethpage High School senior Francisco Almanzar signed a National Letter of Intent on Nov. 14 to play Division II baseball for Dominican College in the fall, where he was accepted on early admission. The catcher for the Bethpage varsity baseball team received not only an athletic scholarship, but an academic scholarship as well. The combined scholarships will cover most of his tuition.
 
In addition to Coach Fischer, Francisco was joined at the signing by Principal Michael Spence, Athletic Director John Franchi, his parents Elizabeth and Javier, and his brother Miguel, a freshman who also plays baseball for Bethpage.
