Baseball Bros

At Santa Clara, baseball is a family affair: Two sets of brothers are playing on the diamond this season.

Taking the American concepts of baseball and brotherhood to a new level, the Santa Clara baseball team has two sets of brothers on roster this year. They are pitchers Ethan ’22 and Jeffrey Heinrich ’23; and the Brigmans, shortstop Dawson ’22 and outfielder Coleman ’22. The Brigmans come from a California baseball family—their father played at University of the Pacific, older brother Keenan Brigman played at UC San Diego, and oldest brother Bryson Brigman had a great season last year with the Miami Marlin’s Triple-A affiliate the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp. To Coleman, playing for SCU baseball is just an extension of keeping it in the family. “The day I took a visit to the campus, and the field, and met the coaching staff, I knew I wanted to be a Bronco,” he says. “It felt like home.” As for any rumors of brotherly rivalry among teammates, Coleman puts those to rest: “We try to bring that brotherly love to each member on the team so that when game day comes, we’re ultimately playing for each other.”
