Joe Buzas, the 78-year-old owner and general manager of the Minnesota Twins' triple-A franchise in Salt Lake City, liked the way Jeff Ferguson played baseball right from the start. "He's my kind of player," Buzas said. "He really hustles. He's no California coaster." California coaster? "Yeah, that was our name for the players from California in the old days," Buzas said with a laugh. "It was more of a joking thing.

Jim Betzsold homered and Jeff Ferguson had a three-run double as Cal State Fullerton defeated USC, 9-3, in a nonconference baseball game at USC Tuesday night. The Titans, who are 16-7 and ranked eighth in the nation, broke open a scoreless game with five runs in the third inning. Ferguson's double was the big blow. Freshman pitcher Jon Ward of Huntington Beach went 5 1/3 innings for the Titans to post his first collegiate victory. USC, ranked 11th nationally, fell to 16-13.

The pressure of baseball starts working out Jeff Ferguson before each Cal State Fullerton game, coming at him like a soft roller down the third-base line, slowly, deliberately, testing his reflexes and threatening to blow away his concentration like a hot dog wrapper in the wind. He is little more than halfway through his first season at third base--at any level--and sometimes it is as if the game is stuck on fast forward.

One night after playing its best baseball game of the season, 13th-ranked Cal State Northridge suffered its worst loss of the year, 12-4, to No. 12 Cal State Fullerton on Wednesday night at Titan Field. Northridge (15-3), which entered play with a six-game winning streak, was denied its 1,000th victory in the 35-year history of the program. The Matadors, whose other losses were by one run, lacked a commanding pitching performance.

The Chevy Blazer was rolling through a forlorn stretch of Texas highway early in the morning of Nov. 26, 1989. Jeff Ferguson, his father and stepmother were passengers in a truck returning to their Whittier home after a Thanksgiving week trip to visit relatives in Asheville, N.C. A 21-year-old cousin was taking his turn behind the wheel. Ferguson, then 16, was half-asleep, but he remembers hearing his father scream at his cousin to wake up.
