At City College, the baseball diamond is a place where hard-working students become devoted athletes. It is also where an athlete named Jeremy Briggs stepped off home plate and into his music career. After joining a local Sacramento band as its vocalist, he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to further his career by auditioning for NBC’s “The Voice.”
Although Briggs qualified for the show and appeared in the first few episodes, he was eliminated on the first “battle duet” March 18. He may not have hit a home run on “The Voice,” but Briggs remains a star in many City College memories.
