DAN BOONE
Baseball / Inducted Oct. 10, 2009

Boone was the key player as Coach Augie Garrido launched the Titans' Div. I baseball program in 1975. The 5-foot-7 lefthander, who is a distant relative of the fabled frontiersman of the same name, transferred from Cerritos College and compiled a 22-6 record for the Titans in 1975 and 1976 with a 2.29 career earned run average, fourth best in school history.

His defining moment came at the 1975 NCAA Regional at USC, where the Titans would face the five-time defending national champions on their home diamond. Boone beat the Trojans with a complete game in the first round, 3-1. He then came back in the eventual title game vs. Pepperdine, entering in relief in the third inning to finish a 6-4 victory that sent the Titans to Omaha for the first time. He still holds the CSF record with 13 complete games in 1975.

Boone was a member of the National Baseball Congress all-tournament team in 1975 for Anchorage and was drafted in the 14th round of the 1976 MLB draft by the New York Yankees. He made the big leagues in 1981 with San Diego but was traded in the middle of the 1982 season to Houston and was out of baseball by 1984. But he came back to pitch in a senior league in 1989 and attracted the attention of the Baltimore Orioles, who signed him and gave him four appearances in 1990, one as a starter. His major league record for 61 appearances was 2-1 with 4 saves and a 3.36 ERA.
