Los Angeles, Calif. - The Fourth Annual Southern California Baseball Media Day will be held Wednesday, Jan. 18 from The Walter Pyramid on the campus of Long Beach State and will be broadcast live on College Sports Television (CSTV) and CSTV.com.

Second-year UCLA head coach John Savage and junior right-handed pitcher Hector Ambriz will represent the Bruins at the event.

The broadcast is presented by Easton Sports, official sponsor of CSTV's 2006 baseball and softball programming. CSTV is providing the first-ever live coverage from the event - on television and broadband - which features head coaches and key players from 14 college teams that have built the rich baseball tradition in Southern California.

The show will air from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. PST on Wednesday. CSTV is available on cable systems throughout the country, Dish Network and DirecTV, as well as via broadband through the CSTV.com XXL package.

CSTV baseball analyst Kevin Stocker will be on hand with play-by-play personality Carter Blackburn to host the network's live coverage, which includes comprehensive analysis and interviews with a myriad of players and coaches from the 14 Southern California schools.
