From Bulldog to “The Show”
SSC alumnus Tony Cingrani, currently a pitcher for the Los Angeles Dodgers, used what he learned at South Suburban to climb to the pinnacle of the baseball world – the Major Leagues. Cingrani, a 2009 graduate, pitched for the Bulldogs two years and still holds several records for the college.
2018 was a great season for the baseball team going 38-19.
In 2015, we were 33-21 and won our 11th Division I NJCAA Region Title (1991, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015).
The team plays a fall schedule of scrimmages and begin their official season on January 10.
The team travels to Texas each year to play some of the strongest community college teams in the nation. The baseball team sponsors a baseball camp in June and parent/child camps in February.
