    The secret of The Freeze: Meet the speedster behind baseball's runaway hit

    The Freeze claims another victim.

He won World Series titles in 1995 and 2000 and was a three-time All-Star. Now his son is hoping to put some trophies and titles on a mantle of his own. J.R. Justice, from San Diego, had offers from Tennessee, Arizona, Illinois and other major programs, but decided to stay close to home.
