San Francisco Giants’ right hand pitcher (RHP) and former College of San Mateo baseball player Joseph Biagini, is a native of Menlo Park, and has been a Major League Baseball player since 2011 when he was drafted out of UC Davis in the 26th round of the Major League first year player draft in June.

This was the achievement of a goal that he had in mind ever since he was growing up practicing with his father, who
taught him everything about baseball he currently knows.

“I always liked it growing up and he always helped me practice and taught me everything I know about baseball up to this point” said Joseph Biagini. “So I try to appreciate the blessing and try to take advantage of it [making the major league].”

Robert Biagini, Joe’s father, briefly played in the Giants’ minor league system in 1982,where he was able to gain experience, which he would later use to teach his son growing up and inspired him to follow in his footsteps. “It’s a lot of work, obviously, because it quickly can become your whole life, you know, it’s a long…tiring trip” said Joe Biagini, in regards to his long journey to make it to the Majors.

Biagini played baseball for The King’s Academy, before moving onto College of San Mateo, where he played for two years before transferring to UC Davis, where he also played for their baseball team, the Aggies.

After being drafted by the Giants, he and the new players were taken to AT&T Park, where they were able to meet former Giants greats, like Willie Mays and Barry Bonds. Biagini said that this was one of his highlights since he started playing for the Giants.

As far as academic goals, he was at first majoring in Political Science. However, this changed recently, taking up an interest in Communication, which led to changing his major.
