Baseball: Pitcher Jeremy Polon commits to San Jose State

Left-hander pitches in VIBL playoffs

Left-hander Jeremy Polon of El Camino Real, the top pitcher in the City Section last season, has committed to San Jose State.

Polon was 11-1 last season. He was the pitcher of the year in the West Valley League and the co-City Section player of the year.

He helped the Conquistadores win the Division I championship and is set for his senior season. Moving to the Bay Area makes his coach, Josh Lienhard, happy. Lienhard is a big San Francisco Giants fan.

However, Polon will stick with the Dodgers.


“He’s still going to be rooting for Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers,” Lienhard said.
