Good to know. Wonder why he coached & spent most of his life on the left coast?
Maybe, also when he was coaching, baseball was something you did in south Louisiana to pass the time before football started.
"Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, Dedeaux moved to Los Angeles and graduated from Hollywood High School in 1931. He played baseball at the University of Southern California for three seasons"
I read this too, I was just going for comedy with my south LA football post.
Given that you knew there was a Rod Dedeaux, and you generally know your shit, I was posting that for the others. I'd heard the name before but didn't know much about him. 5 national championships in a row is an incredible achievement in any sport.
