Scott Sharts and the University of Miami are playing in the NCAA West II baseball regional at Fresno State, starting Thursday, but not together. Sharts, whose 22 home runs this season have earned him a place among college baseball's top power hitters, transferred from Miami after his freshman season to Cal State Northridge, where he has played the last two seasons.

Scott Sharts, the Southern Section career home run leader who recently completed his freshman season at the University of Miami (Fla.), said Wednesday that he will transfer to a university in the West to continue his college baseball career. Sharts, who hit 32 home runs in a three-year varsity career at Simi Valley High, cited financial hardship and limited playing time at Miami as factors that led to his decision. Sharts said that his scholarship last season paid for about $12,000 of the $15,500 tuition at Miami and his parents picked up the rest.

So much for first-game jitters. Cal State Northridge, playing its inaugural game as a Division I baseball team, came out of the gate swinging Friday afternoon at Grand Canyon University's Brazwell Stadium. Northridge pounded six Grand Canyon pitchers for 13 hits, including four home runs, in an 11-2 victory. And, before it was over, Ryan Freeburg, the Antelopes' right fielder, and catcher Grant Gunkel each had taken a turn on the mound.

Buena High finally got caught playing mediocre baseball during its climb through the Southern Section 4-A Division playoffs. Coach Stan Hedegard knew the top-seeded Bulldogs had to play with more intensity despite four-run victories over Valencia and Lompoc in preliminary games. "We had two playoff wins and we didn't play well in either one of them," Hedegard said. "I thought it was just a phase we were going through and we would snap out of it against Hart." Hart caught Buena napping and took a 5-1 lead after two innings en route to a 10-7 victory Friday.

Scott Sharts stood ready, baseball in hand, atop the bullpen mound at Rosenblatt Stadium. He was waiting for a summons from Miami Coach Ron Fraser during the eighth and ninth innings of Tuesday night's game between Miami and Louisiana State in the College World Series. Sharts, 6-foot-6, 222 pounds, would have preferred to be standing in the on-deck circle with a bat in his gloved hands. But when you're a freshman at Miami and your name isn't Alex Fernandez, you take what opportunities you can get. Unfortunately for Sharts, the call never came during a 6-3 loss to LSU that eliminated the Hurricanes from the eight-team tournament.

There is still some serious pitching ahead for Rich Langford and Mike Jenkins. There is the Marmonte League race to settle and, not long after that, the Southern Section 5-A Division playoffs will begin. But Langford and Jenkins, Simi Valley High's right-handed pitching duo, have begun to establish records comparable to some of the most successful Pioneers of the past. Langford is 6-0. He has an earned-run average of 0.50, which translates to an earned run every 14 innings.

Scott Hayward happened to be playing left field for UC Riverside last Sunday when Scott Sharts connected with a slider that was last seen rapidly heading east at about a 30-degree angle. Hayward turned to give chase, but his retreat lasted only a step before reality set in. As the ball cleared the wall, Hayward's shoulders sagged and his head drooped. For several seconds he stared at the ground.
