This is not how Jason Cohen planned things, but he's not complaining. Not quite three years after concluding a stellar baseball career at El Camino Real High, Cohen is one of the catalysts on a Pierce College team looking for yet another championship. One of only three returning starters for the Brahmas, he is a quiet leader who lets his prolific bat make the noise. "He has made a mark for himself as an outstanding college hitter," Pierce Coach Bob Lofrano said.

Sometimes, right or wrong, it pays to listen. Take Woodland Hills West right-hander Pat Treend, for instance. After fighting control problems all season--he entered Thursday night's American Legion Northwest region game with 56 walks in 74 2/3 innings--Treend's eardrums were ringing with advice from teammates, fans and coaches. Throw strikes. "I probably heard that more times than I've heard my name," Treend said. And then there is West left fielder Jason Cohen.

It was as mystifying as it was distressing. As a freshman catcher four years ago at El Camino Real High, Jason Cohen was the victim of a numbers conspiracy. The 60-foot 6-inch span from home plate to the pitcher's mound might as well have been the Grand Canyon, yet Cohen admits that the problem stemmed from a much smaller region--the six inches between his ears.
