Before the first pitch of the game between the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim and the Houston Astros on Sept. 30, the coaches and student-athletes stood on the field to be honored.
The Broncos are led by coach Randy Betten, who played in the Angels’ minor league system from 1995 to 1999. The Cal Poly Pomona team has advanced to the NCAA Division II World Series in each of the last two seasons, placing third nationally in 2015 and 2016.
From those two teams, 10 Cal Poly Pomona players have been selected in the MLB draft. There are now 14 Bronco alumni playing in the minor leagues, including two for the Angels system: Geoff Broussard (’12, animal science) and Max Bethell (’16, business marketing).
