Around 100 people came out to Jackie Robinson Field at John Muir High School to honor three great baseball players from the 1970's during their jersey retirement ceremony. Alan Wiggins (‘76), Johnnie Lynn (‘75) and Warren Hollier (‘76) all were Mustangs at the same time.
Wiggins, whom most call the greatest baseball player to ever play at Muir was represented by his wife and children as they were proud to stand for the deceased star who made an impact not only at John Muir but at PCC and for the San Diego Padres.
Johnnie Lynn was one of the greatest athletes the ever step on any field at Muir. He was the quarterback on the football team, a sprinter on the track team and he could hit the ball from the baseball field across Montana Street to the track and football field. Mr. Lynn has an outstanding career in the NFL as he played defensive back for the New York Jets for 7 seasons
Warren Hollier was a monster on the baseball field. He was a 6'6, 205-pound pitcher in high school and dominate. It's a wonder why Muir didn't win a CIF championship with the likes of Hollier, Lynn, and Wiggins altogether. He played a couple of years in the minor leagues, but that didn't stop him from becoming successful in life. He is currently east coast Supervisor, Retail Operations at Spin Master Inc.
We would like to congratulate these outstanding baseball players as they were an inspiration to the young Mustangs who went on to beat Pasadena and clinched a birth into the CIF playoffs for the first time since the late 19080's.
