When the summer is over, pitcher Matt Campbell of Simi Valley has a chance to be one of the success stories. He was an all-league player for the Pioneers as a junior, going 6-3 with an 1.86 ERA. But during the summer, he has helped his college recruiting chances immensely. He was his team's MVP in the North-South Series and he's trying to make the Area Code Games roster for the Brewers. He's a 6-foot-5 right-hander still learning to throw strikes but getting better. UC Santa Barbara and Santa Clara have been recruiting him hardest, but Long Beach State, Cal State Fullerton, UC Irvine, UCLA and Cal Poly SLO are starting to pay attention.

The recent heated discussion over the merits of Steve Alford's salary to coach basketball at UCLA included a little analysis from reader Scott Ninegar. John Wooden was paid $6,000 to coach the Bruins in 1948, his first season at UCLA. In today's dollars, Ninegar calculated, Wooden's $6,000 would be $57,994 when adjusted for inflation. Wooden's final salary in the 1975 season, when he won his 10th NCAA title, was $40,500. Ninegar calculated that would now be $175,358. Alford's salary is $2.6 million a year for seven years. Ninegar has that at 14.8 times what Wooden's $175,358 would have been after adjusting for inflation.

UCLA believes it is a worthy national champion, the best college baseball team in the nation. But Coach John Savage wasn't thinking that way a couple of weeks ago, when the Bruins were preparing to meet Cal State Fullerton in a best-of-three-games NCAA Super Regional at Fullerton's Goodwin Field. He thought Fullerton might be better. In fact, he thought the Big West Conference champion Titans just might have been the best team in the country. “It was a tough road,” Savage said Tuesday night at a post-game news conference after UCLA finished a five-game College World Series sweep with an 8-0 rout of Mississippi State.
