Majoy Baron had been donning F2 Logistics’ familiar yellow and black for the past seven years of the eight years. Come the 2024 Premier Volleyball League season, the former DLSU Lady Spiker will start adjusting to new hues, this time with the PLDT High Speed Hitters.
Baron is the second big name player that PLDT has picked up for the coming PVL season. She joins setter Kim Fajardo on the team.
The 28-year-old native of Concepcion, Tarlac, admits that no longer being under Ramil de Jesus and playing with former DLSU teammates is something she will need to adjust to. However, Baron admits that this new lease also excites her as she tries to learn more under PVL champion coach Rald Ricafort.
“‘Yung thought na everything I learned from La Salle and F2, lalawak pa because I’m in a new system makes me really excited,” she said.
“Every new coach and every new teammate, I intend to learn from them,” Baron added.
Majoy Baron joins PLDT as a student of the sport
Baron is a three-time UAAP champion and a former MVP. In the club scene, she also won MVP honors in the defunct Philippine Superliga.
Moreover, the middle blocker has also made the Philippine national team numerous times. Now, she writes a new chapter in her career with PLDT.
“I’m coming into the PLDT team as a student of the sport. Hopefully, I ace this challenge as well,” she said.
