A former College of Southern Nevada assistant baseball coach was arrested Thursday after police raided a marijuana grow house in Henderson.

Police said officers confiscated 186 plants from the home on New Hope Drive, near Warm Springs Road and Arroyo Grande Boulevard. The house is just south of Green Valley High School, where Parraz was a standout baseball player.
He was drafted by the Oakland Athletics from the University of Las Vegas, Nevada in 2005, but did not reach the major leagues.
