Some of our Sun Valley locals go on to join superstar college teams. One such team is our own USC Trojan baseball team. Jose Mier takes a look.
Our local USC (University of Southern California) has one of the top baseball teams, the Trojans. The Trojans are unquestionably one of the best college baseball groups to take to the college baseball diamond. Over 96 of the baseball players taken from the college level who’ve made it into the Major Leagues had played for the Trojan team.

The USC Trojans are likewise one of the earliest college baseball groups. The Trojans played their really first university baseball game in 1889 on the college school. The college team lost this video game which might account for the fact that there aren’t any tape-recorded games until 1892. This time, the University of Southern California Trojans won versus the Woodbury Business College by a rating of 14-3. The USC Trojans had an overall of 20 gamers on their college baseball squad that year and completed it as an undefeated squad.
The very next year the Trojans played 10 games throughout the college baseball season. Nevertheless, the USC baseball team appeared to have not played very much over the next four years with just 3 college games being tape-recorded.
Between the years 1898 and 1902, the Trojans baseball team suffered one bad season after another. In 1902 this became history with the arrival of pitcher Rube Waddell, among the stars of college baseball at the time who ultimately went on to end up being a Hall of Fame conscript after playing on 4 various Major League groups. He was, without a doubt, responsible for the upturn in fortune of the Trojans college baseball team.
Of course the war years led to a decline in all sports, consisting of baseball, but the Trojans college baseball team was fully re-instated in 1920. The University of Southern Californaia baseball group went from strength to strength and was finally rewarded by ending up being a member of a college baseball conference in 1927 and they have not looked back since.
