Steve Virgen COSTA MESA - Year Two of the Orange Coast College softball team's rebuilding process will assuredly show improvement, Pirates Coach Jim Bollinger said. Though OCC has just two returners, Gina Mitchell and Gabby Davalos, the Pirates feature experienced players. That was not the case last season. Last year, for example, the Pirates put out advertisements for players in their school paper, so that they would be able to field a team. This year, 12 freshmen come on board, all with several playing years behind them, including freshmen pitchers Charlotte Kraft and Mijanou Pham.
