Ryan McGuire's baseball cap looks like it has been tied to the trailer hitch of a pickup truck and dragged across the Bonneville Salt Flats. It is so peppered with salt that brine shrimp could live in it for weeks. It is so petrified from sweat that the Woodland Hills West first baseman probably doesn't need a batting helmet. Even at the American Legion level, though, ballplayers are a superstitious lot. And since McGuire is batting .

How many major leaguers take time during the season to drop by their old high school to say hello to their former coach? Ryan McGuire, a 25-year-old first baseman-outfielder with the Montreal Expos, stopped by El Camino Real High on Friday to visit with his former coach, Mike Maio, and former teacher, Bob Marks. That's real loyalty in an age where some pro athletes care more about their contracts than those who helped them reach the top.

For all Ryan McGuire did on the baseball field at UCLA this spring--a display of breathtaking offense and near-flawless defense--it is his personality that seems to leave people most spellbound. McGuire, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound first baseman from El Camino Real High, appears to be living his own nostalgic baseball dream while preparing to enter an occupation that, according to many, has been poisoned by labor disputes, million-dollar contract wars and money-hungry agents. Listen to what he says.

Ryan McGuire didn't make the final roster of the United States Olympic baseball team this summer, but he found another place to make his mark. McGuire, a former El Camino Real High standout, had two doubles Thursday to lead Anchorage, Alaska, to an 18-3 rout of the Valley Rangers in an elimination game of the National Baseball Congress World Series at Wichita, Kan. McGuire, a first baseman who will be a junior at UCLA in the fall, drove in four runs to lead Anchorage.

The Granada Hills High baseball team opened Northwest Valley Conference play with a one-run loss to Cleveland, followed by a two-run loss to Kennedy and an extra-inning, one-run loss to San Fernando. Could anything else go awry? While the Highlanders didn't lose another nail-biter in Tuesday's conference game against host El Camino Real, they didn't win, either, finishing in a 3-3 tie in a game called after nine innings because of darkness.

Ryan McGuire hoped for a gold medal, some playing time or, at the very least, a trip to Barcelona when he advanced to the final stage of tryouts for the U.S. Olympic baseball team last summer. What he got, after becoming the last player cut, was an Olympic-sized dose of humility. "In Little League, high school and college, if you're one of the better guys, you never run into adversity," McGuire said. "You're always the guy they want to have on the team. You're never the last guy cut.

From the time they were old enough to chew bubble gum, Matt Fisher, Matt Cassel and Conor Jackson have been called baseball wonders. Every step of the way, from T-ball through senior league, they've stood out as all-stars. In youth drafts, they were certain No. 1 picks. If only they had agent Dennis Gilbert to negotiate their pizza deals. Time has flown by. They're now sophomores in high school, Fisher and Cassel at Chatsworth, Jackson at El Camino Real.
