The former Santa Clara baseball player, who graduated from the university in 2006, is a current member of the World Champion Boston Red Sox. Boston clinched the title on Wednesday night after winning Game 6 of the World Series 6-1 against the St. Louis Cardinals.
"The Red Sox gave me an opportunity when no one else did," said Nava in an interview with MLB Network immediately following Game 6. 
Pro & College Baseball Youth Challenge at SCU a Huge Success
On Sunday, November 10 over 100 youth baseball players attended the Pro & College Baseball Youth Challenge at Santa Clara University. The challenge was hosted by the Bay Area Fellowship of Christian Athletes at Stephen Schott Stadium and included instructional drills and games for kids of all skill levels.  
The four hour baseball clinic provided kids an opportunity to gain helpful tips from talented professionals and top level collegiate athletes representing a variety of well respected universities incluing Santa Clara, Cal, Stanford, San Francisco, and San Jose State. 
David Tufo, Director of Baseball Operations at SCU, helped organize the clinic and said that it "was an experience of a lifetime for many kids who got to play on a college field and get coached by professionals for the first time in their lives."
