Brady Clark & John Cunningham Reunite At Petco Park

June 2, 2005

(San Diego, CA) - With the Milwaukee Brewers in town to play the Padres in a three-game set, former USD baseball coach John "JC" Cunningham had a chance to go see one of his former players compete in person. Brady Clark, a 1996 USD graduate and four-year player for the Toreros (1992-95), is the starting centerfielder for the Brewers and is among the National League's leading players thus far in 2005. Jim Stone, NBC 7/39 weekend sports anchor, helped set up the surprise reunion this past Tuesday, May 31st, on the Petco Park field before the 7 pm contest.

"Brady is one of those guys you are just happy he is so successful where he is right now because he works so hard," said a proud Cunningham. "He is truly one of the good guys and you just hope good things happen to him and this year good things are finally happening. I'm just glad I have a chance to tell him how proud I am of him."

Clark turned in a solid showing against the Padres with the Brewers pulling out a 5-2 win Wednesday for their lone victory in the three-game set. After going 0-3 from the plate in Monday's opener that the Pads won 2-1, Clark came back with 3 hits in 5 at-bats with 1 RBI in front of his former college coach on Tuesday. Clark's 2-out RBI double in the 4th gave the Brewers a 4-3 lead; the Padres rallied to win 8-4. In Wednesday's 5-2 Brewer win, Clark banged out hits in his first three trips to the plate, finishing 3-for-5 and scoring 2 runs.

"One of JC's biggest sayings was I'm responsible for myself and I took that to heart the very first time he said that," said Clark. "It makes sense. You're ultimately responsible for the things you do and your actions and nobody else is. I definitely take that to heart."

A legitimate All-Star candidate this season, Clark is currently tied for the National League in runs scored (41), and is 5th in batting average (.342). He has played every inning of every game this year with the team currently sitting in 3rd place in the NL Central Division behind St. Louis and Chicago. Clark is in his third season with the Brewers and also spent some time with the New York Mets (2002) and Cincinnati Reds (2000-2002). He was undrafted out of USD back in 1995 and signed a free agent contract with the Reds that summer.

This is definitely a good time for all USD alums and Torero baseball fans to make sure they vote for Brady for this summer's All-Star game. Best of luck Brady!
