Baseball: The David Berg story was amazing
If there's a freshman of the year in college baseball, it deserves to be former La Puente Bishop Amat pitcher David Berg.
What he accomplished as a walk-on this season at UCLA was nothing short of extraordinary.
He finished the season with a 1.46 ERA while making 50 appearances, second-best all-time in NCAA history.
In seven playoff games, he didn't allow a run in 13 2/3 innings.
The guy was fearless and looks perfectly suited to become a closer in the coming years with his sidearm delivery and ability to throw strikes.
Most of all, he handles pressure better than some seniors. He's going to be a great role model for so many future players in high school seeking a shot at being a college player.
