Two Escalon High baseball players will continue at the next level, both signing Letters of Intent with colleges to attend and play ball.
Just graduated, seniors Brandon Grogan and Kash Satnat said they have played baseball together for about 10 years, dating back to when they started with Bel Passi teams.
“We’ve been pushing each other from the beginning,” Satnat said.
Grogan agreed, noting that even as youngsters, they always had their eye on the future.
“That was our ultimate goal,” Grogan said of both signing to play baseball in college.
Grogan previously signed his letter of acceptance to play baseball at Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks. He is a three-year varsity baseball outfielder who was First Team All State, All District and All League after his junior season. He also played football for the Cougars but will focus on the diamond as he begins his collegiate career.
“I’m definitely excited,” Grogan said, noting that he reports on Aug. 29 and is looking forward to being near the ocean. He will study business.
“I have my orientation on June 22,” Satnat offered, signing his letter surrounded by family and joined by varsity baseball coach Greg Largent following the June 9 sports awards night at Escalon High. “Just having the opportunity to play (college) baseball is truly a blessing.”
Satnat will study kinesiology at California State University Monterey Bay and signed to play with the team as a catcher.
