Fregosi, eh? OK, let me see if I can tie a bunch of disparate thoughts into one cohesive bit here:
In 1959 Jim Fregosi (Serra, San Mateo) jumps 23-8, is among the dozen farthest preps in the country. By 1961 he's in the major leagues, plays 18 seasons (twice hits over .290, never over .300), then manages four different teams.
In 1964, Bobby Bonds (Poly, Riverside), is the national HS leader at 25-3 (to win the Cal State title), a mark which at the time made him =No.3 on the all-time list. And sister Rosie finishes 8th in the Olympics in the 80mH. Bobby goes on to be baseball all star.
In 1970, Lynn Swann (Serra, San Mateo) breaks Fregosi's school record with a 24-10 (No. 6 on the yearly list) and is also Cal State champ. He goes on to become all-pro wide receiver.
But neither Fregosi nor Swann is remotely regarded as Serra's No. 1 alum. Why?
Becuase in 1964, while Bobby B is a HS senior, Fregosi is in his fourth year in the majors and Swann is in the 6th grade, becuase on July 24, 1964, who is born? Future Serra alum Barry Bonds.
