CLACKAMAS - Former MLB All-Star and 'Comeback Player of the Year' John Jaha will be on hand Sunday (Sept. 25) to help launch a state of the art baseball and basketball facility in Clackamas.
Jaha first became known to Oregon sports fans as a high school sports star at David Douglas High School, where he was known for his prowess both at the plate and on the court. Jaha played almost 10 years in the Major Leagues for the Milwaukee Brewers and the Oakland Athletics.
Jaha retired in 2001, after injuries forced him to leave the sport he had dedicated more than half his life to.
Jaha has teamed up with several local businessmen to develop 212 Sports Complex. Featuring Lexi Courts and Jaha Baseball, the facility is located in the Emmert International Business Park on HWY 212 in Clackamas.
Jaha will be an instructor at the new facility.
Jaha and his partners invite the community to join them from 1 to 6 p.m. on Sunday for the grand opening of 212 Sports Complex, Lexi Courts, and Jaha Baseball.
