JERRY SALZANO


CLASS OF '92


YEAR OF INDUCTION: 2008



After a modest sophomore season, the third baseman began to blossom as a junior and earned All-Colonial Valley Conference honors that year. As a senior, he was a central figure in the Spartans first state baseball title since 1978, as he hit .453 with 35 walks, 10 doubles, two triples, three home-runs, 37 RBIs and a .598 on-base percentage. He was named CVC Player of the Year and first-team All-State. He still holds the schoolís season-record for OBP and walks. For his career, Salzano hit .388 with 104 hits, 65 runs, 86 RBIs, 26 doubles, 54 walks and 143 total bases. All were records at the time and all still rank in Steinertís Top 10 list.

His efforts earned him a full ride to Vanderbilt, but he passed that up when drafted by the Milwaukee Brewers. That started Jerry on an 11-year sojourn through the minor leagues, as injuries held him back from getting his shot at the big time. Salzano remains active in the game as he runs a baseball academy.
