Baseball: Ex-Hart players in UCLA starting lineup

February 18, 2011 | 12:35 pm

Former Newhall Hart standouts Trevor Brown (third  base) and Patrick Valaika (shortstop) were in the UCLA starting lineup on Friday for the Bruins' season opener against San Francisco.

Brown had a double in the first inning and also made a terrific defensive play in the second inning. Valaika, a freshman, started in his college debut. Ex-Hart pitcher Trevor Bauer is scheduled to start on Saturday for the Bruins.

"I'm excited," Hart Coach Jim Ozella said. "I'm fired up for those guys."
