Tony Incaviglia `73


Tony Incaviglia’s athletics legacy at RLS remains one of the most impressive in the school’s history. Joining RLS as a freshman, he made an impact early on by earning all-league honors as a second baseman.

As a sophomore, he not only garnered all-league honors in baseball, but he also joined the basketball team as a starter. The next year, he added football.

Not surprising, Tony’s senior year accolades are a tribute to his leadership and athleticism. He played varsity in football, basketball, and baseball, and was named all-league in all three sports.

He was team captain in both basketball and baseball and earned Most Valuable Player awards in each sport.

After RLS, Tony left for California Polytechnic University in San Luis Obispo to play baseball. He shared MVP honors with teammate and Hall of Fame recipient Ozzie Smith before transferring to the University of Arizona for his sophomore year, where he played baseball for his three remaining years of eligibility.

After graduating in 1978, Tony played for the Pittsburgh Pirates and the San Diego Padres for a total of five years. The year 1981 stands out in Tony’s career, as it was then that he hit .272 with 70 runs scored, 18 home runs, 28 doubles, and 64 runs batted in as a lead-off hitter.

Tony has been involved in the agriculture industry for over 25 years, and is currently a vice president of sales with GR Fresh in McAllen, Texas.
