    I remember Blyleven when he went to Santiago HS in Orange County, Ca. I think he graduated the same year as myself. He was a bigtime name in HS sports. I'm glad to see that he made it to the Hall of Fame.

    And I thought Garden Grove was only famous for Len Dykstra and The Offspring!

    It was also famous for uppers and downers, or maybe that would be infamous for uppers and downers. We used to call Garden Grove, Garbage Gulch, not a pleasant area.
