Amat middle man David Berg going to UCLA

This goes to show hard work pays off. Bishop Amat’s David Berg was a complete unknown who barely pitched at Amat prior to so his senior season. But he worked with pitching coach Chris Beck in developing a side-winding pitching motion that resulted in the most dominating season I’ve ever seen a middle-reliever at the high school level have. He was the glue that held things together, earning Del Rey and Division 4 first-team honors and it certainly didn’t go unnoticed, with UCLA offering a scholarship. It is what it is, hard work at its best.

    This is further proof that Coach Beck is the best pitching coach in high school baseball.

    Congrats to you David. All the way back to our days together on the Stars – I am very happy for you and your family. You certainly deserve it and who knows finally you (UCLA) and Rouric (ASU) will be able to face each other. I am proud of you son.

  • I had the privilage to coach David from age 8 to 13. I can tell you he has worked his tail off the reach this goal. I know he has many more goals and will not stop until he reaches all of them. The Manke’s and the Star wish you all the success in the future. Keep up the hard work both on the field and in the classroom. We are proud of you. Hard work and dedication is always rewarded.

    Congrats David. I love this story. Just looked at your 2010 stats and see you pitched 9 innings your junior year. Really an example of what is possible if you keep working hard!!
