I watched highlights and followed the stories from last night's game and I am so happy for you.
It was wonderful watching you in high school - and hope this MLB debut is just the beginning of many more games I can watch, and follow your baseball career.

I had the pleasure of coaching Brad in football. A finer young man you're never going to meet.
Dreams do come true!
You may pitch in the Majors for another 20 years (Why should Randy Johnson represent the Tri-Valley and have all the fun?) but I'll always remember the opening play of the second half against our cross-town rival, when you took a 111 Trap behind the block of Mark Gaulden and went 68 yards for what proved to be the winning touchdown!
Congratulations Brad! You're an inspiration to us all...

I find it hard to believe that no Pleasantonian had reached the majors until Bergeson debuted at Camden Yards and impressively cooled off a White Sox team that had won 3 of 4 against the defending AL Pennant winning Rays in St Pete.
While I'm aware that of the four major team sports - football, soccer, basketball, and baseball - baseball has produced the fewest results for Pleasanton, if there are any Pleasanton high school sports historians who can tell us who among Amador's 3 EBAL Champion teams had the best chance to reach the bigs or if we're missing anyone else, please feel free to share. It will remain especially rare for us in baseball thanks to Danville's amazing Little League history producing so much talent at Monte Vista and San Ramon Valley plus De La Salle now in the league, never mind Livermore & Cal High producing decent players as well.
