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.

When is too much of a good thing just that? Orange Coast College men's volleyball coach Travis Turner was not afraid to admit that after losing just four sets during a 10-0 start, it was time for a little adversity. So, when sophomore starting outside hitter Ty Hutchins forgot his jersey on a Pacific Coast Conference road trip to Grossmont last week, Turner elected to let one of his top offensive weapons sit out, rather than hand over the extra jersey he always brings along for just such instances.

Did I have a premonition that our lives would somehow intersect? Not really. I remember him first in 1957 as a pitcher for my favorite baseball team, the Hollywood Stars of the Pacific Coast League. That was the year before the Dodgers moved to Los Angeles and stole my heart. Though we ended up knowing of one another for more than 30 years, I'm not sure we ever spoke. I may have said, "Hey, coach," when I encountered him in the football press box at Orange Coast College. Given half a chance, we might have become good friends.

Apparently, one way to slow down the state's most productive hitting team is to, well, throw slower pitches. Fullerton College sophomore left-hander Nick Morton used that approach to help the visiting Hornets edge Orange Coast, 3-1, in an Orange Empire Conference baseball battle on Tuesday. OCC, ranked No. 1 in Southern California, entered the game leading the state in hits (219), doubles (40) home runs (nine), batting average (.317) and slugging percentage (.443). But Morton, with his repertoire of slow, slower and slowest, kept the Pirates off balance to earn his fourth win in five decisions and his third complete game.

As coach of the Corona del Mar High boys' lacrosse program, G.W. Mix doesn't get to see his two sons play in college often. He's too busy coaching, while Ryan Mix and Casey Mix are away competing. Ryan plays for the University of Notre Dame and Casey for UC Santa Barbara. Mix's boys are coming home this week and he will get to see them play in person. Dad came up with a great idea: create a college lacrosse exhibition in Orange County and invite the teams his sons play on. The event, which looks to promote lacrosse in California, took several years to pull off. The schedules worked out for all parties involved.

The Orange Coast College baseball team had already amassed a 12-2 record and earned the No. 1 ranking in Southern California. But Pirates Coach John Altobelli said his players may have struggled with the diminished margin for effort that accompanies Orange Empire Conference competition. Host OCC, which came in batting .336 as a team, managed just five hits in 13 innings to come out on the short end of a 2-1 decision against No. 7-ranked Cypress, the defending state champion, in the conference opener for both teams Thursday.
