Mike Hogan has had his day in the sun, he has lived the dream that every baseball player has, which is to play professional baseball. His dream started right here in Southern California and right here at Newport Harbor High School. His odyssey began in 1977 where he was a standout pitcher for the Newport Harbor Sailors, he went on to play at Orange Coast College, then transferred to Arizona State and was drafted by the Houston Astros in the 1982 draft and played 6 seasons in the pros.
So Mike Hogan is back, and he is here to Pay it Forward to the next generation of baseball stars from the same dirt from which he came. If you ever meet Mike on the street he is the friendliest guy a person could ever know. But if you ever meet Mike between the lines, he is one of the most feared competitors you might be unlucky enough to come up against. If you are a batter, expect chin music, high heat and the ball pounded inside. Like a guard dog, he protects his turf, the inside of the plate is his territory, and he protects it and proves it with every batter.
The fire burns brightly in Coach Hogan, or Hogie as the coaches call him, and he is here at Newport Harbor to pass along his knowledge and passion to the next generation of baseball talent. Make no bones about it, Mike Hogan came from the dirt of Newport Harbor and he has come back to that same dirt to lead a competitive legacy for Coach Murphys program.
Coach Hogan will be pitching for the Alumni team at this years 2010 Alumni game. Hogan first arrived back last year, when he pitched against the Varsity. It was a real treat to watch him pitch. He may be 50 but he is still throwing in the high 80s with a wicked curveball and a move to first that runners could lose their shorts over.
But there is more to Coach Hogan than just fire, he has a love for the players and the game, and it is contagious. We are all very lucky to have Coach Murphy with his positive style of coaching and expansive knowledge of the game and it is only accented and bolstered by Coach Hogan.
