Fresno High has anchored a display board near the entrance of its baseball field, showcasing 13 players from the program who made the Major Leagues.
The $15,000 project, funded in full by the Warriors’ community, lists in purple and gold three rows of the players under the heading: “FRESNO HIGH SCHOOL BASEBALL THE MAJOR LEAGUE TRADITION.”
The list features Major League Hall of Famers Frank Chance (1894 graduate) and Tom Seaver (1962).
Others are Dutch Leonard (1910), Howard Craghead (1926), Dave Odom (1935), Ted Wills Jr. (1952), Dick Ellsworth (1958), Jim Maloney (1958), Pat Corrales (1959), Dick Selma (1961), John Hoover (1980), Bobby Jones (1988) and Sean Halton (2005).
