    Randy Jones #35

    We thought to share this great 1977 San Diego Padres team photo posted by Leslie Young, a fan of Randy Jones - BOHS grad and major league baseball player of the San Diego Padres.  At the time the photograph was taken, Randy, #35 bottom second left, was in his fifth year of playing for the San Diego Padres, with his best season in 1976, winning the Cy Young Award and named The Sporting News NL pitcher of the year! Randy Jones number 35 was retired by the San Diego Padres in 1997.

    We had the pleasure of meeting Randy when we interviewed him awhile back.  Under the homepage featured category: Video Adventures, you will find Part 1 & 2 BBON Randy Jones Video Adventure!
