Despite some success as a hitter, Jason Friedman was pretty much an unknown for Cypress College as a freshman last season. Friedman had a strong second half of the season, and ended up hitting .390. He also was named to the Orange Empire Conference's first team. But regardless, he didn't instill fear in the minds of pitchers. He was a singles hitter at a time when sluggers were dominating community college baseball. Bobby Hamelin hit 31 home runs and Mike Gonzales hit 10 for conference-champion Rancho Santiago last season; Friedman hit three for second-place Cypress.

One day not long ago, Jason Friedman was walking home from the ballpark at Winter Haven, Fla., where he plays for the Boston Red Sox Class-A team. An "old guy," as Friedman put it, pulled alongside in his rental car and said, "Jason, do you need a ride?" Friedman hopped in. The two started talking and, from their conversation, Friedman learned that the man worked in the Red Sox front office. He told Friedman, a first baseman from Cypress College, that his play reminded him of Fred Lynn.

But Cypress staged a five-run rally in the ninth inning to defeat Fullerton, 6-4, at Cypress and win the title on the final day of the regular season. Cypress tied it, 4-4, on a two-run home run by Mitch Kaylor and won it on a two-run home run by Jason Friedman. The inning started when Mike Scott was walked by Trevor Paintor.
