Orange Coast College baseball coach John Altobelli has been named the Orange Empire Conference's Male-Sport Coach of the Year, as voted by conference administrators. "It's quite an honor," said Altobelli, who is in his 20th year. "It's always nice to be recognized by your peers for the work you've been doing - especially when they work just as hard. We've had quite a remarkable season and hopefully, it will continue for another couple of weeks. " The Pirates (33-4-1), ranked No. 1 in the state and No. 1 by a national poll, are hosting one of the Southern California Super Regional playoffs this weekend.

On the last days of the Costa Mesa High baseball season, Coach Jim Kiefer talked about next year and how so many players planned to return. Kiefer has decided he will not join them next season. Kiefer informed his players on Wednesday that he stepped down as coach to concentrate on being the boys' athletic director, and to pursue his master's degree and to spend time with his family. Kiefer led the Mustangs for six seasons, guiding them to the Orange Coast League title two years ago. The league crown was the program's first since 1978 and one of Kiefer's finest moments.

Baseball in Alaska seems to make as much sense as snowboarding in the Bahamas, but don't tell that to Tony Cappuccilli. Cappuccilli is the head coach of the Anchorage Bucs, a collegiate summer league team that plays in the Alaska Baseball League, recognized as one of the top summer leagues in the country. It's a summer job for Cappuccilli, who will return to Irvine after the season and resume his job as assistant baseball coach for Irvine Valley College. Cappuccilli, 30, just finished his second season at IVC and he plans to be there for a few more years, but he isn't the type to sit still for long.

Emme got one of the top athletes at the school in Andrew McCormack to play for him for four years. McCormack stood out, not just because of the afro he used to sport. Emme was never a fan of the hairdo, but he sure was of McCormack's abilities. He played hard and he and his teams competed in the robust Pacific Coast League.
