INDUCTED FEBRUARY 25, 2017


Greg Reynolds was an outstanding athlete at Terra Nova High School. Upon graduation in 2003, he had his choice of playing baseball or football at the collegiate level. He chose baseball.
Passing up an offer to play professional baseball as a draft choice of the Philadelphia Phillies in 2003, Greg accepted a full baseball scholarship to Stanford University where he helped the Cardinal win a Pac-10 championship in 2004. He went on to earn All-Pac 10 honors and was the team’s most valuable player during his junior year in which he led his team in wins, ERA, innings pitched and strikeouts. He was twice named the Pac-10 pitcher of the week and threw five complete games during the 2006 season.
The Colorado Rockies selected the right-handed pitcher with the second overall pick in the 2006 Major League Baseball draft. At the time, Greg was the highest player ever drafted out of Stanford University.
Greg made his Major League debut at the age of 22. He played three seasons in the Major Leagues with the Colorado Rockies and Cincinnati Reds. He was a member of two all-star teams in the minor leagues. With Cincinnati’s minor league team in 2013, the Louisville Bats, he broke the franchise records when he started the season a perfect 10-0 as a starting pitcher. He ended the season with a 2.42 ERA. Following a year of playing professional ball in Japan with the Seibu Lions in 2014, he retired.
During the off-season Greg could be found at Pacifica Cages or community youth camps helping to give instructions to young baseball players.
Greg was a three-sport athlete at Terra Nova, playing baseball, football and basketball. He was named Gatorade California Baseball Player of the Year, Bay Area Athlete of the Year and San Mateo County Athlete of the Year in 2003. He earned All-State honors in baseball and football. As a quarterback in football, Greg led Terra Nova to back-to-back Peninsula Athletic League championships, including an undefeated season as a senior in which he threw 33 touchdown passes. As a pitcher for the baseball team, he posted a 4-3 record with a 0.91 ERA in 85.0 innings pitched with 142 strikeouts his senior year.
One of the highlights of his career came in 2013 as a member of the Cincinnati Reds when he was the starting pitcher against the San Francisco Giants at AT&T Park. It was a dream come true to pitch in San Francisco against his favorite childhood team in front of his entire family, many friends and former coaches.
