BOD’s Jaffe commits to Cal

Eric Jaffe won’t have to travel far when he heads off to college. The Bishop O’Dowd High two-way star orally committed recently to play baseball at Cal.

“I’m excited because it’s obviously a great school,” said Jaffe, a senior pitcher and first baseman who was a third-team All-East Bay selection last year.

“It’s local and it’s Pac-10 and they’ve turned out a lot of pro-caliber players.”

Jaffe chose the Bears over Arizona State, Oregon and USC.

“There was definitely a comfort with the coaches,” Jaffe said. “Also the fact that the school is great and there’s going to be life after baseball, it just seemed the right way to go.”

Jaffe batted .471 as a junior with eight home runs and 25 RBI while also going 3-0 on the mound with a 1.91 ERA in 33 innings.
