UCLA’s baseball team has spent nine consecutive weeks ranked No. 1 in the nation by Baseball America. That never would have happened without the major contributions of unsung junior pitcher Jack Ralston, who is 9-0 with a 2.34 ERA.
Last season, the Hart High graduate was 1-4 with a 6.44 ERA. Who could have predicted that he would emerge as a standout on a team loaded with top pitchers?
Coach John Savage certainly believed in his work ethic. Every year since he arrived in 2015, the 6-foot-6 Ralston has been working toward this season, listening, learning and improving.
