San Diego State Aztec assistant coach Steve Miner.

CATHEDRAL CITY, CALIF – While I was shooting the Mary Nutter Collegiate Classic in Cathedral City, my camera found this former legend of California fastpitch – Steve Miner – hitting infield ground balls.

Miner once played for the Vista Bombers, a strong International Softball Congress (ISC) team that competed in the Western Softball Congress with the likes of the fabled Long Beach Nitehawks and Lakewood Jets.

Miner is now an assistant coach with the San Diego State Aztecs. He looks like he keeps himself in pretty good shape. I don’t doubt he could show today’s youngsters how to slap and lay down a bunt.

San Diego State went 2-3 in the tournament that featured 35 of the best NCAA Division I softball teams from across the country.
