Andre Agassi and Steffi Graf’s son, Jaden Agassi, is a star baseball player for the University of Southern California’s Trojans. Jaden’s sister Jaz was recently overjoyed to witness her brother’s performance on the field.
As the son of such legendary athletes, Jaden has big shoes to fill without a doubt. Although Jaden was exposed to tennis early on, he fell in love with baseball instead. His father, being the supportive parent he is, encouraged his son in pursuing his passion and has since been a part of his journey.
Agassi has proudly represented the Trojans for the past five years as a pitcher. As a freshman, he made 12 appearances, all in relief, pitching 19 innings over 12 outings and recording a 1-1 record with a 6.16 ERA.The 21-year old struck out 13 batters and only allowed 12 walks, significantly improving his walk rate in his sophomore season as well.
Andre Agassi’s daughter, Jaz, was in the stands on Saturday for one of her brother’s games (against Marist College), and was delighted to witness Jaden’s outstanding performance. She documented her presence on Instagram, sharing a couple of videos of her brother pitching in the 17-4 win for the USC Trojans.
