Roenicke, Utley, Francisco Represent UCLA Baseball In MLB Post Season

The Dodgers and Angels failed the make the playoffs. Again. So, if you're a Socal local (or just a Bruin who likes baseball and your team didn't make the playoffs either) you might consider pulling for the Milwaukee Brewers or the Philadelphia Phillies

The Brewers are managed by Ron Roenicke, who played one season for UCLA in 1977. The Phillies feature two Bruins, second baseman Chase Utley and outfielder Ben Francisco. Utley played for UCLA from 1998-2000; Francisco followed him from 2001-2002.

And if you need a team to root against, it might as well be the Arizona Diamondbacks, whose top pitcher, Ian Kennedy is a Trojan.

The official UCLA site has the details.

I'm pulling for the Brewers.
