UC Berkeley's NCBA Division I Club Baseball team
Diehard fandom of one of the most storied franchises in American sports
UC Berkeley's Club Baseball team competes in the National Club Baseball Association (NCBA) Division I. We play in the NCBA's Southern Pacific Region, Northern Conference. The team has a long history of success, including a conference title, two regional championships, and two World Series berths with a national runner up from 2013-14.
I served as Cal Club Baseball's president for three seasons from 2017-19 alongside Jackson Michalski and Andre Balthazard. Under our leadership, the team improved from below .500 to perennial conference contenders, finishing 10-5 in 2019 and on our way to our first conference title since 2013 in a COVID-shortened 2020 season. I enjoy pitching and third base, playing outfield occasionally.
For as long as I can remember, I've been a diehard Dodger fan. The color theme of this website is Pantone 294, the official color of Dodger blue. I've attended Dodger games in nine of the MLB's 30 stadiums in 5 different states, including hundreds of regular season and dozens of postseason games. Some of the greatest Dodger moments I've witnessed in person include Jose Lima's shutout vs. the Cardinals in the 2004 NLCS, the series clincher vs. the Cubs in the 2008 NLDS, Matt Hollidays error for the Cardinals in Game 2 of the 2009 NLDS, Juan Uribe's series-winning blast in Game 4 of the 2013 NLDS, Kershaw's gem in Kansas City in 2014, Kenley Jansen's immaculate inning vs. the Marlins and Cody Bellinger's cycle in Miami in 2017, 11 innings of one-run Kershaw pitching in Games 1 and 7 of the 2017 World Series, Max Muncy's 18th-inning walk-off home run in the marathon Game 3 of the 2018 World Series, me winning the hat shuffle in the summer of 2019, and Games 5 and 6 of the 2020 World Series in the COVID bubble in Arlington, Texas, culminating with the most special moment of them all: the Dodgers winning their first World Series in 32 years and the first in my lifetime.
