Frank Romo and Leticia are the parents of Sergio Romo.
Who is Frank Romo?
Frank Romo is the father of Sergio Romo.
Sergio Romo’s grandfather and father both played baseball; his grandfather was a member of the Mexico City Diablos Rojos.
Work responsibilities kept Frank, a semipro player, from being able to play Minor League Baseball, and he wanted to make sure his son got the opportunity.
He built Sergio a pitching mound in the backyard and taught him how to throw.
Who is Leticia Romo?
Leticia Romo is the mother of Sergio Romo.
She has been supportive of her child even before he became a superstar. Romo played shortstop and third base on the baseball team at Brawley Union High School, graduating in 2001.
With no scholarship offers from four-year colleges, Romo nearly signed enlistment papers to follow his father in the United States Navy, but he opted to play baseball at junior college instead.
