In the off season, Coach Alkire announced the selection of Adam Deharo as JV head coach. Adam grew up in Tracy and went to Tracy High where he played baseball all four years. As a freshman, he was on the JV team and then became a 3 year starter for Coach Alkire on the varsity team.
After graduating, Deharo traveled to Australia to play on an international baseball team representing the United States. Adam would go on to play in a semi-pro league in the Bay Area for a couple of years then continuing to play in the Cal-Mex league for about 10 years. It was at this point he started to enjoy coaching more than playing and he started running a travel baseball team which he has maintained for the past 6 years.
Adam was an assistant JV coach last year and stated he is very excited to now be the head coach helping to enhance the Tracy High baseball program.
Rosters for the Frosh/Soph and JV squads were released today (see below). All three levels have now established their rosters pending any other actions resulting from the conclusion of Winter Sport teams. Varsity and JV will likely scrimmage Los Banos HS on Saturday but the location and time are still being established. Reminder we have a Parent Meeting on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. on campus in Room D210 (two story building south of the gym. Stairs are located on the North side of the building). Players are welcome to attend as well.
We have changed the game on March 13th against Bear Creek from Monte Vista diamond to Islander Field in River Islands. The JV game will start at 4 p.m. followed by the varsity game at 7 p.m. under the lights.
Coach Alkire would like to thank the many parents who showed up today to work on the Monte Vista fields. "Many worked all day starting at 8:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. The place looks much better since so much was accomplished. It should be a good year with that kind of parent support." Thanks again, Coach Vic

Tracy High Baseball announces two new coaches for the 2020 season
Frosh/Soph - Herman Pahulu
JV - Adam Deharo
Starting his 27th season as varsity head coach is Vic Alkire
When long time Freshman coach Jerry Ortega stepped down in the off season, Coach Alkire found a solid replacement to coach the Frosh/Soph team with the hire of Herman Pahulu. Herman is Tongan and grew up across the bay in San Bruno. He played four years on the Capuchino High School baseball team and was the Captain. He also played 3 years on the football team also achieving Captain status. In 1994 he was awarded Scholar Athlete of the Year at the High School.
On to college Herman played 3 years of rugby for UC Davis and had a 1997 Final Four appearance beating Stanford for a 3rd place finish. At Davis he received a BS in Electrical Engineering. He then went to San Jose State to get a masters in Electrical Engineering. He has been an engineer for 21 years working in the silicon valley and tri-valley for medical, life science, clean tech, and semiconductor companies.
Coach Pahulu has lived in Tracy since 2000.
Welcome Coach Pahulu to Bulldog Baseball!
In the spring of 2007 I started a website for freshman baseball (because my son was on it) and within a few weeks I was invited by Coach Alkire to launch a website for the entire baseball program. Now 14 years later and probably 100,000 photos later, I start my coverage of the 2020 Bulldog Baseball season. The website is successful thanks to the coaches, Booster Club, players, and fans who feed me information throughout the year. I try to make a lot of the home games and all the postseason games, but I can't always make every event due to work and family commitments. If you have decent quality photos you would like to send me from games that I can't attend, I'm always happy to post here.
Coach Alkire is always prompt in providing me the varsity stats post game and I usually have them and a game summary published by the evening. I hope to establish a rapport with the new JV and Frosh coaches where I'll be getting scores and other info to timely post on their pages as well.
I look forward to providing you my multimedia coverage of Bulldog Baseball for the 2020 season.
Enjoy the season. Stu Jossey
Many of the Tracy High coaches have long time ties to the baseball program and school.
Several Bulldogs who graduate each year move on to play at JC's in the area. A few land in a four year program, while an elite few head into the MLB. View the active list here.
