Former Dodgers No. 1 pick David Yocum looks back 'at what might have been'

There once was a day, oh say 27 years ago or so, that if you played baseball in Miami Springs Little League, the last pitcher you wanted to go up against was little David Yocum. Well, he is not so little anymore. Yocum is now a 12-year veteran working as a firefighter for the Miami Beach Fire Department, but oh what a path he weaved between those days at Prince Field and today where he helps put out fires and saves lives on the Beach.
