Corona del Mar High senior Brian Ford joined the baseball team after just two days of practice. Ford, coming off a stellar boys' soccer season, got on track right away.
Ford went on to earn first-team All-Pacific Coast League honors as a center fielder after batting .444 with 12 runs batted in and a team-best 10 doubles.
Teammate Will Morrow, a right fielder, also made the first team after leading CdM with a .500 average and producing 17 RBIs.
Ford covered a lot of ground in the outfield with his speed, committing only one error.
Morrow had one of the best arms in the outfield.
Ford, a leadoff hitter, scored 28 runs, swiped 15 bases in 17 tries, and had a .505 on-base percentage. Ford, a first-team all-league selection in soccer, is headed to UC Davis to play soccer.
Morrow led the Sea Kings in slugging percentage (.650) and on-base percentage (.554). He homered twice, scored 23 runs and was five for five in stolen-base attempts.
