Re: USC attracting top prospects
OK this is a crazy story but bear with me.
I was at a gospel mission Tuesday night. Talked with a guy in his 50s who used to me a first baseman for the Angels in the 80s who's now homeless (true story - you can google him: Daryl Sconiers). I grew up playing baseball so we talked for a while. I said that I wanted to play in college and went to a school that's pretty good in baseball now.
I told him where I went and he said something like "wow, that's a great baseball school! One of the best in the country!" This came from a homeless guy in Sacramento who used to play in the majors out here in California.
I'd say we are getting a pretty good reputation.
