Mayne was a two-year catcher for the Titans in 1988 and 1989 after playing his freshman season for his dad, Mike, at Orange Coast College. He was first-team All-Big West Conference both seasons and earned ABCA second-team All-American honors in 1988 when he led the team with a .393 batting average with 22 doubles, 1 home run and 31 RBI. He batted .350 with 5 HRs and 34 RBI in 1989 and owns the school record with a 38-game hitting streak in 1988.
He was a first-round draft pick in 1989 by Kansas City and soon began a 15-year (1990-2004) Major League playing career with seven different clubs with a lifetime .263 batting average. On Aug. 22, 2000, he became the first position player in 32 years to post a pitching win when he worked a scoreless 12th inning in Colorado’s 7-6 win over Atlanta. He retired in 2004 as a member of the Los Angeles Dodgers.
