2011 SRVHS Athletic Hall of Fame

Brady Raggio, Class of 1990:

San Ramon has had a great tradition of successful Baseball teams and players for well more than a half a century. And yet, Brady stands as one of only two players ever to have his jersey number retired and have his name and number inscribed on the outfield wall of the baseball field. As a three year varsity baseball player, Brady culminated his career by being chosen as both an All-League and All-Northern California Baseball player and was picked to represent Northern California in a game against the best players in Southern California.

In 1992, at Chabot Junior College, Brady was the California JC Pitcher of the Year. He was also a JC All-American that year. Brady still holds two records at Chabot for winning percentage (13 – 0) and lowest ERA (1.04). That year, he was drafted and signed by the St. Louis Cardinals. He made his Major League debut in 1997 with a win over the Florida Marlins which generated a lot of press back here at home. Brady spent parts of both the 1997 and 1998 seasons with the Cardinals. He also spent some time with the Cardinals top affiliate AAA team in Memphis, TN where he was the AAA ERA leader in 1998.

Brady played professionally in Japan for three seasons before returning to our Major League as a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks in 2003.

In 2004, Brady played for Arizona’s AAA affiliate, the Reno Aces. This was not the end of his career, but actually the beginning of his next career as Brady currently works for the Reno Aces, handling all of the corporate partnerships.

Brady and his wife, Denise, have two children, Brock and Lauren.
