Early in the 2001 major league baseball season, Rob Garibaldi was astonished after seeing Barry Bonds. As Garibaldi's father tells the story, his son spoke in exclamation points: "Look at him! He must've put on 30 pounds! Look at his shoulders! His head!" Ray Garibaldi never paid much attention, but his son did: "Bonds was his idol." They were lefthanded-hitting outfielders who grew up near San Francisco and became college players at the highest level.

The first two games between Cal State Fullerton and USC this season produced a one-run victory for each team, but the rubber game Wednesday night quickly turned into a runaway for the Trojans. USC broke it open with an eight-run second inning and coasted to an 8-3 victory at Fullerton after Trojan starter Ronald Flores pitched four perfect innings before being replaced. Only one ball reached the outfield against Flores (5-1), who struck out five.

Denise Garibaldi can still remember the question. It was bedtime, and as she tucked in her 7-year-old son, Rob, he asked: "How do I get to be a professional ballplayer?" The pursuit of a major league dream had begun. It started in youth leagues, continued through high school and appeared possibly within reach during college at USC. But it ended in 2002, when 24-year-old Rob Garibaldi shot himself in the head five months after his last season at Sonoma State.
