BCC Alumnus Bochy Wins Second World Series Title


October 29, 2012 - For the second time in three seasons Brevard Community College baseball alumnus Bruce Bochy is a world champion.

Bochy managed the San Francisco Giants to the World Series championship on Sunday night as they swept the Detroit Tigers in four games. The Giants defeated the Texas Rangers in five games to win the 2010 World Series.

Bochy, who graduated from Melbourne High School, was an All-American catcher for the 1975 BCC team that won a state championship under head coach Jack Kenworthy. Following his time at BCC he played for Florida State University and was drafted by the Houston Astros in 1975. Bochy ended his career as a Major League player with the San Diego Padres in 1987, going on to serve as the Padres manager for 12 years before heading to the Giants.

The BCC baseball field on the Melbourne campus was named in Bochy's honor in 2011. Construction has begun on a new 1,200-square foot clubhouse at the field that will include lockers for players and coaches, showers, a baseball office and storage. Completion of the facility is expected by Dec. 15, providing plenty of lead time heading into the Titans 2013 season that begins in January.
