Foundation & Organization

2

Founded in 1916 as a Department of Sacramento High School, Sacramento City College is the seventh oldest public community college in California and the oldest institution of higher learning in Sacramento. In 1922, the citizens of Sacramento organized a junior college district by severing the connections between the college and Sacramento High School. This plan of organization remained in force until 1936 when the college became a part of the Sacramento City Unified School District. Twenty-eight years later, as a result of a March 17, 1964 election, Sacramento City College separated from the Sacramento City Unified School District to join the newly organized Los Rios Junior College District which assumed the operation of American River College and Sacramento City College. In 1970 the newly renamed Los Rios Community College District opened a third campus, Cosumnes River College. Folsom Lake College became the fourth fully accredited college in the District in 2003.

Sacramento City College Panthers

State Championship Gallery 1951 State Champions

The Panthers of 1951 won the first baseball state championship in Sacramento Junior College history with a season record of 29-3. The team, which was coached by Jack Woerner, had a 19-game winning streak that included a 14-1 defeat of the University of California. Pete Vartanian was the team MVP, while catcher John McNamara was the team captain. McNamara became a major league manager for 16 years; his career highlighted with a World Series appearance in 1986 as manager of the Boston Red Sox. Pitcher Tony Stathos had a 12-0 record and won the title-clinching game by a score of 7-5 over El Camino Junior College.

1953 State Champions

Jack Woerner led the Panthers to their second championship in 3 years as the team posted a 25-5 record. J.C. Masters pitched the Panthers to a playoff victory for the league title to advance to the state playoffs. Grant Tech (now American River) fell to the Panthers 15-0 and 5-2 as Sacramento Junior College captured the Nor Cal championship, as Masters pitched a 2-hitter and hit a home run in the opener and the team stole 13 bases. After losing the opener of the state championship, the Panthers came from behind twice to defeat Long Beach City College in a doubleheader to win the final series. Center fielder Norman Coons led the team in RBI, runs scored, hits, home runs, triples, and stolen bases in being named the team MVP. Masters was 11-1 with 79 strikeouts in 78 innings.

5-Time State Champions 1988 State Champions

Weinstein’s Panthers captured the third state championship in school history after going through the loser’s bracket at the state tournament and defeating topranked Rancho Santiago twice to win the title. The Panthers finished 46-10 and were led by Camino Norte Conference Player of the Year F.P. Santangelo, who led the state with 45 stolen bases. On April 28, 1988, the Panthers won the first game played in partially completed Union Stadium, clinching their eighth straight Camino Norte Conference championship. Weinstein was named National Community College Coach of the Year.

“Win the Last Game” 1998 State Champions

“STAY HOT”

The 1998 Panther baseball team posted a dominating record of 44-2 in winning the second state championship under Jerry Weinstein and the fourth in school history. The team lost the second game of the season and didn’t lose again until the second game of the playoffs - a streak of 37 straight wins, including a 26-0 record in the Bay Valley Conference. They swept through the rest of the playoffs, defeating Saddleback in the final game. Pitcher Mike Neu posted a record of 15-0, the most wins in school history without a defeat. Matt Riley, a freshman who posted an 8-1 record, signed after the season with the Baltimore Orioles for a junior college record signing bonus of $790,000.

1999 State Champions

The 1999 baseball team became the first Panther team since the 1982 football team to repeat as state champions. First year coach Andy McKay guided the Panthers after Coach Weinstein resigned his coaching position to take a job with the Los Angeles Dodgers organization. After sweeping through the playoffs, the team found itself needing to win the final 2 games on the final day to win the championship. The Panthers won the first and then found themselves trailing in the bottom of the ninth inning of the final. After telling McKay that he was going to win a championship, shortstop Joe Thurston delivered a 2 run double with 2 outs in the bottom of the ninth inning and the Panthers were able to dog pile for the second straight year.

Over the 2011 and 2012 summers, Derek was a part of the Chatham A’s coaching staff in the Cape Cod League. He followed in the footsteps of Sac City coaches Andy McKay and Deskaheh Bomberry, who both coached in Chatham for longtime skipper, John Schiffner.

His on-field duties included running the offense and coaching third base for one of the premier Connie Mack programs on the east coast, including coaching Pirates' #1 overall pick Pedro Alvarez.

He returned to coach for the Panthers after playing for Sac City in 2001 and 2002 (reaching the Final Four both years) and transferring to St. John’s University in Queens, NY for the 2003 and 2004 seasons, where he played for Ed Blankmeyer. As a member of the Red Storm, Derek was a utility infielder and played in the 2004 NCAA Stanford Regional.

2013 Baseball Media Guide

Sports Information Director Steve Gill Steve Gill is entering his 15th year with the SCC Athletic Department, and is currently the school’s Sports Information Director (SID), entering his 8th year in this role. His primary responsibilities include designing and maintaining all of the athletic web pages (and updating results to provide the most current information), and serving as the “Voice of the Panthers” as the P.A. Announcer for all home contests for football, men’s and women’s basketball, and baseball. Steve’s passion for sports announcing began in his senior year at Christian Brothers High School, where he announced the men’s basketball games for fun and that carried over to his first year at Sac City (while red-shirting for baseball) when he announced all of the home baseball games for the Panthers. After his career ended at SCC, he decided to pursue his degree at Sac State and give up playing baseball so that he could announce here at Sac City, and he has been doing it ever since. His voice eventually would carry over to the hardwood as he was recruited to do the basketball games and finally he has become the “Voice of the Panthers.” Gill was a member of the 1998 Sac City Panthers National Championship baseball team that went 44-2 and was undefeated (26-0) in the Bay Valley Conference. After receiving his A.A. Degree from SCC, he went on to earn a B.A. Degree in Communications from CSU, Sacramento (2000). In addition to his SID duties, Steve finds time to have a full-time job for Randstad at HP in Roseville, where he is currently a Site Operations Manager of a Call Center in Colorado Springs, a TSG Services Sales Team and a TS Customer Operations team. Steve still plays baseball (from February to October) in the Sacramento Men’s Senior Baseball League (SMSBL) and during the summer he manages the Sacramento Legends, a wood bat baseball team in the Sacramento Premier Baseball League. In just their 5th season, he led the Legends to the 2006 Stan Musial World Series at Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, Texas. In October 2007 “Gilly” won a World Series Championship (his 2nd - the 1st coming with the Sacramento Braves in 2004) with the Sacramento Cardinals in Phoenix, AZ - earning coMVP honors having tossed 3 consecutive complete games (the Quarterfinal, Semi-final and Championship games - 27 straight innings). He and his beautiful wife, Gretchen, live in Sacramento with their three children, Ian (11 yrs. old) and Alannah (4), and Nolan (1).
