Pete Jensen Classic
Wiffle Ball TOURNAMENT
Hosted by next play, 650
Welcome to Next Play 650's Inaugural Pete Jensen WIFFLE Ball Tournament registration site, where players, sponsors, donors, family, friends, and community come together in preparation for Next Play 650's fundraiser to jump start this amazing platform for our youth. Next Play 650 was founded by James Johnson, a father of 3 living in Burlingame, who coaches his children in multiple sports at their schools and recreation teams. He began coaching, not just because of his pure love of sports, but because there was a lack of "qualified coaches" in the community. Thus why he created Next Play! Ready to be inspired, check out more about Next Play 650 below!
Who is Pete Jensen? COACH Pete Jensen is a San Mateo County baseball legend inducted into the San Mateo County Sports Hall of Fame in 2008.
"You would be hard-pressed to find a more successful San Mateo County high school baseball coach than Pete Jensen. Hes has been Serra's baseball boss for 22 seasons. During that time, his teams have won more than 500 games, 13 West Catholic Athletic League championships and four Central Coast Section titles. Jensen's stellar program has produced four major league ballplayers and countless other professional and college players. His teams are annually among the best in Northern California." -- San Mateo History Museum website
James, himself was mentored under Coach Jensen at Serra High School so in honor of creating a platform to develop more qualified coaches, there was no one else James thought that would take this honor.
So lace up those sneakers, break out those wiffle ball bats and come join this fun-filled event, not only to honor a legend, but help be a part of raising this pivotal youth platform that could change the way coaches coach, off the ground and running!
