Rio Linda's Darren Oliver

Favorite Son in World Series… Finally!

Many have said it’s not about the destination, but about the journey.

I believe favorite son Darren Oliver would have something to dispute about that. Oliver has had a circuitous career once he left Rio Linda high school, pitching for eight different teams over the past eighteen years. He’s finally landed back home with the Texas Rangers who drafted him in 1988 and has helped them win the American League pennant. He will almost certainly see action in the World Series over the coming week.
