We offer a huge Mill Valley Little League congratulations to Gamboa, a Tam High graduate and Pepperdine University pitcher who was drafted in the 18th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers in this month’s MLB Draft.
Gamboa’s selection marks the second time in the last two MLB Drafts a former Mill Valley Little Leaguer was picked by an MLB club. In 2016, left handed pitcher Kenny Rosenberg, an MVLL alum, was selected in the 8th round by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays.
MVLL is fairly certain that Gamboa’s selection into pro baseball ranks somewhere in his career highlights next to his grand slam in the 2005 La Ginestra Cup at Boyle, helping his Diamondbacks, managed by his father, Martin Gamboa, claim the coveted “La G.”
Gamboa played in the 2008 Majors City Championship with his Giants, but lost to the A’s. He was a Juniors All-Star as well, making it to the District 3 title game.
At Tam High, Gamboa helped the Red Tailed Hawks win their first North Coast Section baseball championship since 1929, then moved on to Pepperdine, where he caught the eye of the Dodgers.
Way to go, Max! Mill Valley Little League is cheering for you, with the possible exception of when your Dodgers play the Giants.
