Cal Baseball’s future is as bright as the new lights and scoreboard at Evans Diamond! Thanks to you, our Cal Baseball family, who guided our program out of extinction, we have our sights set on continuing to rebuild our program so we can get back to Omaha.
In southern California, there are many former players, family, alumni, and friends of Cal Baseball who take great pride in supporting our program. Last summer, several former players met with Coach Esquer in Newport Beach and Los Angeles for an informal meet-and-greet to discuss the future developments of the Cal Baseball program. In March, we met again after the UCLA game to keep in touch with the team and updated developments. We welcome the opportunity to connect with our southern California fan base as we continue to secure a strong baseball program for the future.
A few weeks ago, it was exciting to watch Bill Winterhalter, a former Cal player from southern California, throw out the first pitch at Evans Diamond before the Stanford game. Bill was part of the Cal National Championship team under Clint Evans and teammate of Jackie Jensen that beat George Bush’s Yale team. Thanks, Bill. You are an important part of our 120-year legacy!
Be sure to come out and meet the players! It is important that you feel as much a part of Cal Baseball as they do. After all, this is your program too! Your support for our team provides vital resources necessary to building a winning program. Together, we will achieve great results in the tradition of the University of California.
Vice Chairman, Cal Baseball Foundation
