Time for a baseball question.
Q: uscmike said:
How would you describe the support that USC baseball gets former players who were professionally successful (e.g., Tom Seaver, Fred Lynn, Randy Johnson, and countless others). Was the support better in the past? If so, why has it diminished? Any thoughts you have are greatly appreciated?
A: It varies widely. Former pitcher Mark Prior is very supportive. Although the walk outside Dedeaux Field is named after Mark McGwire, I’ve always heard complaints from the athletic dept. about his lack of support. I’m not sure about Seaver. I know Lynn’s been supportive in the past. Randy Johnson? I haven’t heard much about him.
