Baseball: A renaissance for Crenshaw

March 30, 2010 |  1:45 pm

Crenshaw's baseball program, best known for producing former Dodgers outfielder Darryl Strawberry, is churning out some pretty big-time players again.

Former Cougar Trayvon Robinson, a center fielder who graduated in 2005, is the first player from the school to make the Dodgers' 40-man roster since Strawberry in the 1990s. Second baseman Dan Nelson (Class of 2004) is in high Class-A in the Washington Nationals organization and California sophomore outfielder Cameron Hart (2008) became the first Cougar to play Division I college baseball in about 25 years.

Redshirt freshman Kenji Corbisiero (2009) is a walk-on with the Marist College Red Foxes, who last week defeated Villanova.
