Burlingame Athlete Joins USF Baseball Team

Grant Goodman signed with USF.

Burlingame High School senior Grant Goodman is keeping his baseball talents in the Bay Area. The University of San Francisco head baseball coach Nino Giarratano recently announced Goodman signed a national letter of intent during the early signing period to play baseball at the university beginning in the 2013-2014 academic year.

“Grant is one of the best pitchers in the Bay Area,” said Giarratano is a statement. “He has starter stuff, and he blossomed this summer. He stayed off the circuit where everyone could see him, and that’s a big reason we were able to sign him.”

While at BHS, Goodman was named athlete of the week by the San Mateo Daily Journal and Cal-Hi Sports. He additionally received the honor of Peninsula Athletic League Pitcher of the Year in 2012. Furthermore, San Jose Mercury News named him on the Central Coast Second-Team.

“We’re proud to have Grant and think he’s going to be a Friday night starter by the end of his career,” Giarratano said.

Goodman, a pitcher, was one of five players to join the University of San Francisco Diamond Dons team in the early signing period.
