SDSU's most recent postseason appearance was in 1991.

SDSU coach Tony Gwynn thinks about it all the time.

“Every day,” said Gwynn, whose team went 31-28 last season. “That's never going to change. Obviously, that's what you want to do. That's your goal.”

The Aztecs take the first step toward that goal this afternoon when they open the 2009 season against Bethune Cookman at the MLB Urban Youth Academy Invitational in Compton.

Junior right-hander Stephen Strasburg, the nation's top-rated pitcher, will get the start for SDSU.

“Obviously, having a guy like Strasburg on your staff is a huge thing,” Gwynn said. “But he's got enough pressure already. We're just asking him to lead our young guys and give us a chance to win.

“Everybody points the finger at Stephen being the savior, but we have to get production from everybody.”
