House Becomes Official

Southern California officially announced the hiring of Tom House as its new pitching coach, a major coup for second-year coach Chad Kreuter. House pitched for the Trojans in 1967 before becoming a third-round pick of the Braves that year, and he had an eight-year big league career, highlighted by when he caught Hank Aaron’s 715th home run while standing in the Atlanta bullpen. House later was pitching coach for the Texas Rangers but has been in private business for the better part of the last 15 years.
