Brett Tomko Honored
Congratulations to Dodger right-hander Brett Tomko, whose uniform number 35 was retired by Florida Southern College last night at Henley Field in Lakeland, FL, home field of the FSC Moccasins, the defending NCAA Division II National Champions.
In 1995, Tomko won NCAA Division II Pitcher of the Year honors, going 15-2 with a 1.35 ERA. He struck out 154 batters in 126 innings.
"It’s my first trip back (to FSC) in 11 years," Tomko said after the jersey retirement ceremony. "It’s been strange to go around the campus and see the field and relive a little bit of how it was in college. But it’s definitely been a fun day."
On having his jersey retired: "I would have never thought anything like this could’ve happened when I was here. It’s a great honor and a great feeling. It’s definitely been a blessing."
