OMAHA, Neb. -- In this first College World Series since the death of Augie Garrido, his presence continues to loom as large as ever.

Garrido won five national championships here, tied for the second most all time, and made 15 visits -- seven with Cal State Fullerton and eight with Texas. He was the first coach to win championships with two programs and the only to win multiple titles at more than one school.

Yes, college baseball lost an icon on March 15. Garrido, 79, died in Newport Beach, California, of complications following a stroke. Born 44 years to the day after Babe Ruth, Garrido, too, was a giant in the game.

Fullerton had no locker room at its home field in his early years. The school trucked in bleachers used in the Rose Parade, but Garrido's team in its initial year of Division I play won at five-time reigning national champion USC en route to Omaha in 1975.
