Art Mazmanian, a four-year letterman in baseball at USC, has died at the age of 91. He started at shortstop as a freshman in 1945 and at second base in 1948 and ‘49. In ’48, Hank Workman (left) and Mazmanian (right) joined Wally Hood as USC’s initial first-team baseball All-Americans.
In the 1948 CWS title game against Yale and won by USC 9-2, Mazmanian led the Trojans and went 3 for 3 with a run scored, giving USC its first NCAA baseball title. Future President George H.W. Bush played first base for Yale in that game and had a double.
