Congratulations to long-time California Warriors player and coach Joe Jimenez on taking the next step in his baseball career to sign with the Pittsburgh Pirates!

After high school, he earned a spot on the Chapman University baseball team and would to the California Warriors organization as a coach during his summers in college. As the starting Catcher on Chapman’s 2019 team, Joe helped lead his squad to the DIII National Championship where they swept Birmingham-Southern to take home the national title. We’re excited to watch Joe’s future continue to unfold and wish him the best in his professional baseball career!
