Former Costa Mesa High and Orange Coast College baseball standout has a big weekend ahead at Cal State Fullerton.
Brent Mayne, a product of Costa Mesa High and Orange Coast College who played 15 seasons of major league baseball, will be inducted into the Cal State Fullerton Athletics Hall of Fame on Saturday at the Titan Student Union.
Mayne, a catcher, played two seasons at Fullerton, earning second-team All-American honors as a sophomore in 1988. He was a two-time first-team All-Big West Conference performer.
In 1988, he led the Titans with a .393 batting average with 22 doubles and 31 runs batted in. His 38-game hitting streak that season is a school record.
As a junior, Mayne hit .350 with five home runs and 34 RBIs.
He finished with a .363 career major league average. A first-round pick of the Kansas City Royals in 1989, he also played for the New York Mets, Oakland, San Francisco, Colorado, Arizona and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
