A Gift to Honor Life-Changing Lessons
"The greatest lesson I learned in my life was from my Cal Poly baseball coach," says Robin Baggett. "When I was competing for a starting position, he told me, 'Whatever you may lack in ability, you can make up for with desire and hard work.'"
Robin graduated from Cal Poly in 1973 with a degree in business administration, was president of Cal Poly's Associated Students, Inc., and was the starting catcher on the baseball team, where he earned two-time All-Conference and Most Valuable Player honors.
Two successful careers later—first as an attorney, now as a vintner—he still believes desire and hard work will pay off every time and is supporting Cal Poly Baseball so future generations can learn the same through the challenges of athletic competition. In recognition of his support to Baggett Stadium, that world-class facility was named in his honor. And to further establish his legacy at Cal Poly, he has set up a provision in his will that will provide for Cal Poly Baseball after his lifetime.
