For more than three decades Mr. Tom Succow has been Brophy’s varsity baseball head coach, a position he regards with honor.
“In my 34 years as a head coach here … I’ve never thought that this has been a right of mine to wear a Brophy uniform; it’s a privilege for me and still to this very day it’s still a privilege to me to represent the school and wear the uniform,” Mr. Succow said.
Brophy first baseman Dan Winkler ’11 belongs to a pool of very talented baseball players in Arizona.
“He’s turned in some big runs, he’s been a reason why we are off to a 13-5 start this season,” said head coach Mr. Tom Succow.
Winkler has three homeruns with 16 runs scored and 11 runs batted in as of April 13.
There were fireworks going off in the Phoenix sky Friday night April 23, a display put on by the Arizona Diamondbacks who had just beaten the Philadelphia Phillies.
The fireworks might not have been intended for the Brophy Broncos baseball team but as they watched them past the left field wall of Opus Field, the Broncos cheered in celebration of their own meaningful victory.
By beating the Hamilton Huskies 15-10, the Broncos upset the top ranked team in the state and the fourth ranked team in the entire country.
