  • Johnny Fernando

    Johnny Fernando

    In 2011, our community lost a very special player, a very special person, Johnny Fernando. Johnny spent all his formative years as a baseball player in the Bulldogs’ organization and then went on to a very successful career as a starting middle infielder on nationally recognized baseball teams and on the varsity team at Beacon High School.

    His 2010 Perfect Game rating listed him as a “National Follow” and a College Division 1 and low round major league prospect. Over the years, he dedicated many hours to sharing his skills and baseball knowledge with many Bulldogs and helped our programs by umpiring, coaching, assisting evaluations and instructional clinics, and teaching at Camp Bulldog. In his honor, we give the Bulldog’s Golden Glove to the John Fernando Golden Glove award.
