Cal Lutheran University in Thousand Oaks dedicated its baseball field in honor of Sparky Anderson. Anderson did not attend Cal Lutheran, but has lived in Thousand Oaks for nearly 40 years.
Cal Lutheran competes in Division III and has produced one major leaguer. Astros farmhand Jason Hirsh was the Texas League Pitcher of the Year in 2005. If you want to cover a Cal Lutheran sporting event as a member of the media, you don't need a credential. Of course, they don't charge admission for any event.
