Oakdale's Vander Tuig, UCLA teammates on TV

June 29, 2013 

— Oakdale’s Nick Vander Tuig and his UCLA teammates are reaping the spoils of this week’s College World Series championship.

Vander Tuig, who pitched the Bruins to two CWS victories, joined a contingent of teammates and coaches Friday night on The Tonight Show. Host Jay Leno didn’t interview the Bruins but did acknowledge their NCAA title.

“It was a lot of fun to meet Jay Leno,” Vander Tuig said. Soon after, the UCLA gang motored to the ESPN SportsCenter studio in Los Angeles.
