Coming to the CCL // Cal State Fullerton’s Brendan Bobo

Updated: April 17, 2021

Brendan Bobo, a 2020 graduate of Harbor High School in Santa Cruz, had built himself quite the impressive prep resume before heading down south to Cal State Fullerton. The four-time letter winner and two-time team MVP was also a standout on the football field and basketball court for the HHS Pirates. He was just getting started with his senior season before the COVID-19 pandemic forced an early end to his high school baseball career.  He has been making the most of every opportunity since. 

The freshman infielder spent the beginning of the season in a battle for playing time but has come on strong as of late–a great sign for Fullerton, who still have hopes for a Big West Conference title. Bobo is batting a stellar .348 in conference play, along with a .541 conference on-base percentage. The Titans currently sit in 3rd place in the Big West, with only UC Irvine and UC Santa Barbara ahead of them in the standings.  

Bobo has played a significant role in Fullerton’s success in conference play, who’s breakout game came against the first-place Gauchos of Santa Barbara on March 21. Bobo hit his first collegiate home run, a two-run shot in the second inning, and added two walks and another run later on to keep Fullerton on the right side of the 10-9 thriller to even the series at two games apiece. Most recently, Bobo had another home run and three runs batted in during an April 16 bout against UC Davis. 

Bobo will try to keep his hot streak at the plate alive for the rest of the year, as Fullerton makes a run for Big West supremacy, and into the summer when he will be suiting up for the CCL’s Conejo Oaks. Follow the future Oaks infielder here, and stay up to date on all things Oaks at
