Pitcher Phil Bickford from Westlake Village Oaks Christian High, who was chosen No. 10 overall in the Major League Baseball draft by the Toronto Blue Jays, failed to reach agreement before Friday's signing deadline and will enroll at Cal State Fullerton. Asked whether he were ready to do a cartwheel, Fullerton Coach Rick Vanderhook said, "I would if I could, except I'm driving. " Bickford, who was throwing 96 mph this spring, will join a rotation that could rival the best in college baseball.

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.

UCLA Coach John Savage was as giddy as his typically stoic demeanor would allow after his team defeated Cal State Fullerton, 3-0, Saturday night to advance to the College World Series. "Whenever you get to Fullerton and win two games, beating what I think is the best team in the country, it says a lot about your character," Savage said. Fans of Vanderbilt, North Carolina and Louisiana State might disagree about Fullerton's being the best team, but Savage's excitement was understandable.

This is what UCLA batters do. They scrap and scuffle and on most days they get enough done. The Bruins could use the 5-3 super-regional victory over Cal State Fullerton on Friday as a training video. Sophomore Eric Filia could star in it. Filia flicked a single to right that broke a 3-3 tie in the 10th inning at Goodwin Field, and when UCLA reliever David Berg threw his 54th and final pitch to strike out Michael Lorenzen, the Bruins were one victory away from going to the College World Series.

UCLA pitcher David Berg unlocked the gate to the bullpen at Jackie Robinson Stadium. He took a seat along the rail, staring out at the field. Welcome to the office of Kaprielian, Weiss and Berg. Their motto? "We lock things down," Berg said. James Kaprielian, Zack Weiss and Berg form one of the best bullpen combinations in the nation, UCLA's 1-2-3 finishing kick. Some say it's the best … ever. "It rivals any bullpen at any point in college baseball history," said San Diego Coach Rich Hill, whose team was eliminated by the Bruins in regional play Sunday.

Jason Dietrich always wanted to put on Cal State Fullerton pinstripes. He cheered for the Titans baseball team as a teenager, and visualized himself as a player jogging onto Goodwin Field to an ovation one day. That dream didn't materialize. But at 39, Dietrich is finally wearing those pinstripes and has played a major behind-the-scenes role for a Fullerton team that is among college baseball's best. As pitching coach, Dietrich guides one of the game's stingiest - and youngest - staffs.
