Pat was drafted by by The San Francisco Giants farm. In fact, he was drafted alongside former Cincinatti Reds George Foster '67. However, Pat's destiny would be different. He opted to go to college as many of us did when we graduated from high school. He wanted to become a teacher where he excelled at inspiring the minds of the younger generations. He gave them discipline, skills and philosophies that would last them a lifetime.
Pat Scuderi and George Foster were friends then. And, they are still friends. They play tennis and golf these days. They have never lost respect for one another. When George got married, guess who was George's Best Man? It was none other than Pat Scuderi. In the Wedding Party were the likes of Johnny Bench, Ron 'The Penguin' Cey, and All The Greats of 1977.
Coach Ike, Coach Scuderi and many other coaches lead Leuzinger's athletic teams to great victories. Never undervalue a coach or teachers worth. They are well-remembered and loved by all their students. That's a fact!
