The visual compilation illustrated how that team came through great adversity, including the death of then-redshirt catcher Jourdan Watanabe, to claim the program's first state crown since 1980.

It was arm discomfort that prompted Cypress College baseball coach Scott Pickler to shuffle his pitching ace from a scheduled start Thursday against Orange Coast to Saturday. For Orange Coast ace David Hill, who awoke Thursday with a slight illness, it was a sore spot of a different variety that helped him talk Pirates Coach John Altobelli into giving him the ball against the visiting Chargers. "[Altobelli] mentioned maybe having me go Saturday instead, but I said 'No way!'" said Hill, who allowed one run and six hits in 10 innings but took a no-decision in Cypress' 2-1 win in 13 innings on Feb. 27 at OCC. "I said 'Give me the ball and let me throw against these guys and we'll get two out of three.

Hillman was an All-American at Orange Coast College who had UCI coaches buzzing about his offensive prowess in the fall. Hurst, a two-time All-Orange Empire Conference performer at Cypress College, was a borderline washout after an underwhelming fall.

For every collegiate pitcher who stands atop a pitching mound, there are 10 more relegated to the scrap heap. Brandon Dixon knows how it feels to be the latter, a forgotten man whom coaches hope will save them the indignity of conveying that lack of worth by simply ceasing to show up. Dixon’s belief in himself, however, made such a conversation necessary about 18 months ago at Cypress College, where, after throwing seven innings in...
