business Tony Altobelli It was a rainy day on the Orange Coast College campus so baseball coach John Altobelli brought the troops into the gym for some whiffleball batting practice. "I'm throwing to Scott Beerer and he rips a line shot and hits me (south of the boarder) and I go down for the count," Altobelli recalls. "I look up and he's rolling on the floor laughing his head off. It's the only time I've ever seen him smile. I guess I have to take one for the team to get him to smile."

Scott Beerer, a former baseball star at Newport Harbor High and Orange Coast College, is back in professional baseball after a two-year, injury-imposed absence. And Beerer, drafted in the second round (No. 47 overall) as a pitcher by the Colorado Rockies in 2003, has reinvented himself. The 6-foot-1, 200-pounder is playing outfield for the Tri-City Dust Devils, a Class A affiliate of the Rockies based in Pasco, Wash.

Steve Virgen Young baseball coaches should take a lesson from Orange Coast College Coach John Altobelli. The OCC baseball team's 6-5 win over two-time defending state champion Riverside Tuesday stemmed from a serious, down-to-business strategy from Coach "Alto." A month ago, Alto basically drew a line in the sand. He challenged his team's character and made sure this season would not be doomed to underachievement. After the Pirates lost 13-2 to Saddleback on March 16, which marked their fourth setback in five games, Alto demanded what he called a "silent practice."
