Some baseball players can't hit their weight; others hit a ton. Pepperdine's Steve Rodriguez is one of the latter. If Rodriguez's weight and batting average were the same, he would be batting .170. Instead, the 5-foot-8 second baseman is batting .430. Rodriguez, from Las Vegas, is batting nearly 100 points higher than he did last year. He is one of the reasons Pepperdine is in first place in the West Coast Conference this year.

"I always have a joke of the day set up," he says. Rodriguez is the oft-ignored component of the Bruins' dynamic pitching, but he has been important in the success of Trevor Bauer, Gerrit Cole and Rob Rasmussen.
