Jim Campanis, Jr. is the son of former major leaguer Jimmy Campanis, and grandson of long-time Dodgers' General Manager, Al Campanis. Jim Jr. is a third generation professional baseball player, whose on-the-field career included All-American honors at USC, selections to the 1985 USA Junior National Team & Team USA in 1988, plus six seasons as a catcher in the minor leagues with one year on the major league 40-man roster. From the time he was drafted in the third round in 1988, Jim rose steadily through the minor league ranks, and was destined to reach the majors as his father and grandfather had, until he suffered his toughest break-a broken wrist the very day he was told he was to be a September call-up. Jim decided to leave baseball in 1995 and explore new opportunities. He found a new career path in advertising and marketing, and then founded his own full-service agency, Campy Media, Inc. Jim divides his time between his work, active participation in the baseball community, writing music, and enjoying his family at his home in Southern California.
