Like many great athletes, Steve Gill of El Dorado High School often leaves a big impression in the minds of his opponents. But sometimes, Gill leaves an even larger--and more lasting--impression in the outfield fence. The one he often slams into while chasing a long fly ball. "He's completely crazy," Golden Hawk second baseman Doug Ireland said. "He runs into (outfield) fences all the time. In one game, he almost killed himself running into a metal bar. I think he really looks forward to pain."

A couple of weeks ago, Steve Gill suffered one of the major disappointments of his baseball career. Gill, Cypress College's center fielder, and his teammates failed to make the state finals and missed a chance at a state championship and the ring that goes with it. Cypress, the top-seeded team in Southern California, lost to Los Angeles Harbor in the regional final. But that's pretty much old news for Gill. It's time to move on and face other challenges. Or in this case, the biggest challenge of his young career.
