John Bushart, a left-handed pitcher from Thousand Oaks High, has signed a letter of intent to attend Cal State Northridge. Bushart (6-foot-4, 175 pounds) said that he selected CSUN "for the opportunity to pitch in my first year and because the program is on the rise." Bushart is the third high school player--and the first left-handed pitcher--signed this month by Coach Bill Kernen. "He's the best senior left-hander in the Valley that I saw," Kernen said. "He has all the right qualities that we want to build our program around."

Four days after undergoing surgery on his left shoulder, Cal State Northridge junior left-hander John Bushart signed with the Angels. Bushart, a 24th-round pick, is not expected to throw at top speed until February or March. The 1989 Thousand Oaks High graduate was the ace of the Matador staff until his shoulder began to hurt in early April. He pitched through the pain, finishing with a 10-4 record and a 4.38 earned-run average. "I'm very relieved, and also very happy," Bushart said.

Arcadia High collected 15 hits off six pitchers in a 12-2 victory over Thousand Oaks in a Southern Section 5-A Division first-round playoff baseball game Thursday at Arcadia. Thousand Oaks ace John Bushart left in the third inning, after which Arcadia (22-4) had built a commanding 8-0 lead. "It was just one of those days you can't do anything about," said Thousand Oaks Coach Jim Hansen, whose team finished 14-10. "When we hit the ball hard it was right at somebody."

Cal State Northridge junior left-hander John Bushart, a 24th-round pick of the Angels, was released Wednesday from Valley Presbyterian Hospital after surgery on his left shoulder. Bushart said he is not expected to be able to throw at top speed until February or March. During the two-hour operation, Dr. Ron Glaussman tightened the ligaments in Bushart's shoulder. Originally, an arthroscopic procedure was planned, but the damage required an incision.

Cal State Northridge's Steven Morales and John Bushart struck out 29 batters in 16 innings Sunday as the streaking Matadors swept a nonconference doubleheader from visiting Utah, 6-1 and 7-1. The right-handed Morales (2-1) struck out 15 in the seven-inning opener, including a school-record eight in a row. He gave up three hits and one unearned run. Bushart, a left-hander, provided a memorable encore with a five-hitter that included 14 strikeouts in nine innings.

The scouts came in droves to see Cal State Northridge left-hander John Bushart pitch Sunday at Matador Field. But his velocity was so unimpressive that they didn't need their radar guns. What the guns could not measure was Bushart's competitiveness in the Matadors' "must-win" Western Athletic Conference Western Division game. With a painful twinge in his shoulder that limited his fastball to the 70 m.p.h.

Cal State Northridge left-hander John Bushart was in the bullpen casually loosening up for the second game of Monday's doubleheader when he did a double take. Coach Bill Kernen was waving for him from the pitcher's mound, and Marco Contreras, who baffled Cal State Sacramento for 8 2/3 innings of the first game, was heading for the dugout.

There were more than a few instances Friday when Cal State Northridge pitcher John Bushart appeared one batter--even one pitch--away from an early exit in the Matadors 4-3, 13-inning nonconference victory over visiting Hartford. But the junior left-hander managed to hang on each time but the last. When he finally took a seat, Bushart had 12 innings and 172 pitches behind him in a herculean performance that set the stage for a game-winning RBI single by Kyle Washington in the 13th.

As Cal State Northridge outfielder Joey Arnold headed home Sunday, he turned to teammate John Bushart and hollered, "John, you're my hero." Arnold was not given to melodrama, not after watching Bushart labor for more than three hours against adversity. Despite throwing 144 pitches with a slight case of tendinitis, despite three errors by his teammates, despite falling behind by four runs, and despite putting the winning run on first base with one out in the ninth, Bushart endured.

Time after time, John Bushart worked himself out of trouble Tuesday night. And in the bottom of the ninth with Cal State Northridge clinging to a one-run lead, he came through again. With two on, two out and a full count, Bushart induced a fly ball to center field to preserve the 13th-ranked Matadors' 4-3 upset of seventh-ranked UCLA in front of 1,104 at Jackie Robinson Stadium.

What's with all these weapons we have pointed at the Soviet Union? In the name of goodwill, only one arm was needed to defeat the Red Army--the lean left arm of John Bushart. Bushart, a pitcher from Thousand Oaks, turned back the Red Army baseball team, 7-3, during a recent two-week barnstorming tour of the Soviet Union, Finland and Sweden with a team called the Baseball Ambassadors. The secret? Pssst. The Soviets can't touch a curve. Can't do much with a country fastball, either.
