When Tremaine Spears walked into the Cane Cutters clubhouse for the first time last week, he was reminded just how small the baseball world is.

The UL senior outfielder, who is entering his first season with the Cane Cutters, was reintroduced to new Cane Cutters coach Ricky VanAsselberg. Spears and VanAsselberg crossed paths years ago when Spears was playing baseball around the Central Louisiana area and VanAsselberg was coaching his son, Kevin.
