Big league dreams from City College

For Sacramento City College Panthers baseball players Jorge Viña and Jared James, Union Stadium holds the weight of family history and dreams of a future in Major League Baseball.

Viña, a sophomore shortstop from Elk Grove High School, is the nephew of major league second baseman Fernando Viña, who also played for the Panthers in 1989. The elder Viña left City College to play professional baseball from 1993 to 2004, with long stints on the Milwaukee Brewers and St. Louis Cardinals. Fernando Viña made the All-Star team in 1998, and earned Gold Glove Awards in 2001 and 2002. Currently, he provides analysis and commentary for Oakland Athletics games on Comcast SportsNet California.

Freshman infielder/catcher Jerrod Bravo of City College takes a few minutes to meditate on the up coming game against Los Medanos College at Union Stadium Feb .26

Beating the curve

Sporting a modest build, at 5’10”, 200 pounds, 19 year-old Jerrod Bravo doesn’t stand out at first glance, but once the baseball game starts, it may seem that he’s ahead of the pack.

In fact, Bravo’s leading the Panthers in many of their batting statistical categories, including: slugging and on base percentage, runs-scored, hits, extra-base hits, and total bases. He also leads the team,and is seventh in the state, in batting average.

Bravo is also tied for first in stolen bases and ranks third on the team in runs batted in. So far this season he’s also only been held hitless in three games and has had multi-hit games in seven of the team’s first 15 games.

Interim Head Coach Derek Sullivan, who’s led the Panthers to a 7-8 record, says so far Bravo has done what he’s expected from him.
