Four years ago, Tyler Johnson took a leap of faith. He had never heard of Stony Brook University, didn't know it played Division I baseball, and when he found out the school was some 3,000 miles away from his home in Chatsworth, he didn't exactly jump for joy. But he went anyway. "They really wanted me," he said. "Going across country was tough, but it's the best decision of my life. " Johnson has become the winningest pitcher in Stony Brook history. He was the first of a growing number of Southern California recruits to say yes to the Seawolves from New York's Long Island, who play UCLA on Friday at 2 p.m. PDT in the opening game of the College World Series in Omaha.

Alex Trezza hits the type of home runs that cause jaws to drop. The Stony Brook catcher was leading the country with 23 homers and was among the Division I leaders with 64 RBIs--both single-season school records--entering the weekend. But it isn't the number of homers that's been most impressive, it's the way Trezza hits them. "He definitely has hit some big-time blasts," Seawolves coach Matt Senk said. "He hits them high. He hits them far. Usually when he hits a home run, it's not a cheap one."

In college baseball, with 35-player teams limited to 11.7 scholarships, walk-ons can become the unsung heroes of a successful program, and that's the case for No. 2-seeded UCLA, which plays Stony Brook on Friday at 2 p.m. PDT in the opening game of the College World Series in Omaha. Who knows where UCLA would have finished this season without the contributions of junior catcher Tyler Heineman and freshman pitchers David Berg and Grant Watson, all of whom chose to come to Westwood with no scholarship and only the promise of an opportunity to compete for playing time.
