Schott, Stephen

Steve Schott ’60 was inducted into the Santa Clara University Athletic Hall of Fame in May. A pitcher for the Broncos’ baseball team during his student days at SCU, Schott is perhaps best known as a former co-owner of the Oakland A’s. In 2004, Schott kicked off funding for a new baseball stadium at Santa Clara with a $4 million gift. The 1,500-seat Stephen Schott Baseball Stadium, designed with player development in mind and one of the premier college baseball stadiums on the West Coast, opened in April 2005 to a sold-out crowd. He and wife Patricia Schott also funded the Patricia A. and Stephen C. Schott Admission and Enrollment Services Building, which began welcoming visitors to the Mission Campus in 2012. Schott is a founding partner of Citation Homes in Santa Clara.

Kellogg, Michael (Mike)

Freshman Dorm: O'Connor

Michael Kellogg ’64 writes: After retiring from the NFL (Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos), I went to law school and became a criminal defense attorney. Eventually, Gov. Pete Wilson appointed me to the bench. I have been sitting as a Los Angeles Superior Court Judge going on 19 years. I married a much younger woman so must work until age 120. We are expecting our first, which actually will be our second and third, if you get my drift--triplets! At my age I am having trouble remembering names so we have decided to make it real simple, A, B and C.
