The UCLA baseball team is ranked No. 1 in the nation with a record of 20-5. Here pitcher, Jack Ralston battles USC at USC last Saturday. The Bruins won their 3-game series with the Trojans.

The UCLA baseball and softball teams are ranked No. 1 in the latest college polls. Add to that list the Bruins No. 1 ranked beach volleyball team and the Bruins are riding high in the spring despite the recent admissions scandal that included the UCLA soccer coach.

UCLA softball player Aaliyah Jordan hits a three run home run against California last Sunday during the Bruins 6-0 win over the Bears. UCLA is 32-1 and ranked No. 1 in the nation. They are on the road this weekend against Arizona State.

The softball team is 32-1 and they travel to Arizona State for a three game series against the Sun Devils on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. They return home on April 12, 13 and 14 against Oregon.

The softball team is a fun team to watch. They play loose but when its' time to get serious they have the talent to get the job done. They have the pitching, hitting and defense to win a NCAA title but that is still two months away.

The 20-5 baseball team is a lot like the softball team. They appear to have very few weaknesses. They are on the road this weekend against Stanford and they return home to play eight straight games at Jackie Robinson Stadium starting Tuesday against UC Irvine at 6 p.m.

The beach volleyball team is 21-0. Combined the three No. 1 teams records and it's 73-6. What's going on in Westwood is the best kept sports secret in Southern California.
