Gamecock All-American first baseman Yaron Peters was born on this date in Los Angeles, California.
Peters literally came out of nowhere to post maybe the greatest offensive season ever at Carolina in 2002. Yaron hit .377, and established single-season records of 29 homers and 95 RBIs. He was also named MVP of the Columbia Regional in 2002. Peters and the 2002 Gamecocks made it all the way to the championship game of the CWS before falling to Texas.
