But one game presented a pair of college baseball traditional powers squaring off in a huge bubble battle as the history-rich programs of USC and Cal State Fullerton played with RPI rankings on the line.

Stars of those teams came from places like Madras, Ontario, Salem, Forest Grove, Hillsboro, Oregon City, Portland. And there was a strong presence of players from north of the Oregon-Washington border, too. Continue reading
