On his way to watch Brian Ford play in his final high school baseball game last month, Corona del Mar Coach John Emme talked about Ford's future. Emme knows Ford has a bright one at UC Davis, where he plans to play for the men's soccer program. But Emme believes baseball can lead Ford to a brighter one. To Emme, Ford can easily play baseball on the next level, not just in college. He thinks Ford has the potential to make a living playing baseball.

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.

MISSION VIEJO — Brian Ford is a versatile player for the Corona del Mar High boys’ soccer team. He showed that during the South Orange County Classic, playing six positions throughout the tournament. Yet, it wasn’t until the final match and during the last minute that he appeared to be in the perfect position. His header near the left post went into the net with one minute left to give the Sea Kings a dramatic 2-1 victory over host Mission Viejo for the tournament championship Thursday.

Mitch Gardner and Brian Ford love the long ball. It's a love affair the Newport Harbor Baseball Assn. 14-year-old All-Stars plan to maintain at least four more years in the Corona del Mar High baseball program. Gardner, a slick-fielding shortstop, and Ford, a fleet-footed center fielder and leadoff hitter, helped the NHBA squad win two postseason tournaments and finish 16-4 in all-star competition this season. The two gregarious teenagers were eager to point out the results of their one-on-one home-run derby after a 10-1 loss Sunday to host Los Alamitos in the championship game of the Los Alamitos Invitational.

CORONA DEL MAR — The deuces truly were wild on Newport Harbor High junior Brendan Mestrin. There were two balls, two strikes, two outs and a 2-and-2 count. Mestrin, the second baseman who wears jersey No. 2 and bats second in the order, was trying to bring in teammate Max Gerard from second base. Mestrin and the Sailors were down to their last strike in the top of the seventh inning. But Mestrin saw the fastball and did perhaps the logical thing, hitting a big two-bagger to tie the score.

PARAMOUNT — A special guest hopped on the Corona del Mar High bus before the Sea Kings traveled to their next boys' soccer match on Tuesday. Jack McBean was a familiar face to those onboard. He used to ride with many of the same players to matches before he left the team in December to join the U.S. under-17 national team. McBean just got in the night before from Jamaica, where the 16-year-old helped the Americans to the CONCACAF title on Sunday. Coach George Larsen said the Sea Kings could have used McBean to get to the CIF Southern Section Division III championship match.

Before the New Year, Brian Ford had to stop one bad habit on the field. He couldn’t rely on passing the ball to Reed Williams to score goals for the Corona del Mar High boys’ soccer team. Williams wasn’t around to add to his 19-goal total, best in Orange County. The UCLA-bound senior was out with a hamstring injury for the second straight match at the South Orange County Classic. Ford wasn’t feeling too good either. The junior, playing with an injured right ankle, had no choice but to continue in the finale against Mission Viejo.
