In the exciting world of college baseball Trojan players are special. They wear the greatest uniform in the history of this sport. The rode to USC is a difficult one. A young man has to display outstanding character, maintain excellent grades through out his educational career and show that he can compete at the highest level in college.
As for me, I feel very lucky. Each year I see the finest college baseball players in the USA right here at Dedeaux Field!! Then periodically other players from various colleges come to Los Angeles... and get to witness them perform!
To have played at The Greatest College Baseball Program of the 20th Century will always be my highest honor. A Daily Trojan reporter once asked me my most memorable moment as a Trojan. Without hesitation...every time I put on that uniform was a greater moment.
I salute the parents of all the players that come here. They set the standards, supported their child's athletic dreams, made it possible to navigate the pressures of being young and in most cases foot the bill. So Mom and Dad pat yourselves on the back and know that you've won a great battle in life...having a USC Trojan in your family.
