Hancock Pitcher Isaiah Ramos Named All-American

Isaiah Ramos' sophomore season at Hancock College has ended with the ultimate prize. The Righetti High School graduate, who had never been used regularly as a pitcher in his baseball career, has been named an All-American.

The right-handed pitcher earned a spot on the ABCA/Rawlings All-American Second Team on Friday. He was one of 12 pitchers and 36 players overall in the state named to one of the three All-American teams.  


Ramos (9-0, 3.04 ERA) is the first Bulldog in four years to receive All-American status. This season, he enjoyed a breakout year on the mound for the Bulldogs.

Ramos led the Western State Conference in wins and posted the highest single-season win total by a Bulldog in 15 years. The Righetti High School graduate was a utility infielder for Hancock his freshman season. 

During the offseason, he asked coaches to give him a shot a pitching and the request paid off. Ramos signed a scholarship to pitch next season for Chico State, a Division II program.

Other postseason accolades for Ramos include All-Western State Conference First Team and All-Southern California Regional First Team honors.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
