ARCADIA — As the sun began to dip low in the sky over Giambrone Field at Arcadia High Friday evening, it was the Arroyo Seco Babe Ruth All-Star team that seemingly had everything to lose. Locked in an extra-inning battle with San Gabriel Valley, an Arroyo Seco win would send the team straight to the Babe Ruth Western Regional Tournament beginning Thursday in Watsonville. A loss in the game that was pushing three hours in length going into the ninth inning would trigger an “if-necessary game” immediately following and keep a dangerous San Gabriel Valley squad alive and kicking deep into the night.

COMPTON - For the first time all tournament long, the Arroyo Seco Saints baseball team appeared vulnerable and perhaps even beatable. Yet, that didn't matter. The Saints proved themselves untouchable and clinched a berth in Thursday's opening round of the Palomino League World Series by topping the San Jose Giants, 5-2, in Tuesday evening's West Zone championship at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy. The victory was the first for Arroyo Seco (32-4-1) in the West Zone finals since 2004 and proved especially satisfying since the Saints were turned away in back-to-back West Zone Finals the last two years.

ARCADIA — Can there really be too much of a good thing? Arroyo Seco Babe Ruth All-Stars Coach Aaron Milam seemed to think so when he expressed concern following his team's 16-1 mercy-rule win over Nevada on Thursday in the second round of the Babe Ruth Pacific Southwest 16-18 Regional Tournament. "That's not the kind of game I wanted today, those kind of games don't make a team better," Milam said. "The close games are the ones where they get better, where they have to do it or else they lose.

COMPTON - With offense and pitching in their favor, the Arroyo Seco Saints baseball team kick-started the Palomino West Zone Tournament with a nearly flawless 9-0 victory Friday afternoon versus the Lacey Rainiers at the Urban Youth Academy. "We've been playing good baseball and we've played so many games that these kids have grown used to playing with each other," said Arroyo Seco Coach Aaron Milam, the newly named head coach at St. Francis. "We pitched pretty strongly and our bats showed up today.

COMPTON - Faced with their first challenge within the West Zone Palomino Tournament, the Arroyo Seco Saints baseball team responded with force. The Pasadena-based squad broke a tie heading into the bottom of the fourth with a three-run inning and never looked back en route to a 10-4 victory over Team Urban Youth Academy in Saturday afternoon's action. With the victory, Arroyo Seco (30-4-1) clinched a berth into Sunday's tournament quarterfinal at 4:30 p.m. back at the Urban Youth Academy.

ARCADIA — When the Arroyo Seco and San Gabriel Valley Babe Ruth All-Star squads get together, it's not your ho-hum Babe Ruth game. "We go head to head every year," said Arroyo Seco Coach Aaron Milam, an assistant on the St. Francis High team. "It's a big rivalry." In past years, it's a rivalry San Gabriel has gotten the best of, though. After all, it's won the World Series in Ohio two of the last three years. This time around, things are a bit different. "That's a good team," said San Gabriel Coach Phil Torres, who's also the head coach for Crescenta Valley High.

ARCADIA — Riding high off their win over their San Gabriel Valley counterpart on Wednesday in the SoCal Babe Ruth 18 Tournament, the Arroyo Seco Babe Ruth All-Stars turned in a repeat performance on Friday. Behind Leo Madrid, who pitched five scoreless innings and staked the team to an early lead with a three-run homer, Arroyo Seco held defending-champion San Gabriel Valley to one run on three hits to clinch the tournament title with a 5-1 win. "That was Leo's first at bat, first pitch — that was pretty impressive," said Arroyo Seco shortstop and 2007 St. Francis High graduate Joe De Pinto of Madrid's first-inning shot that scored him and Mitchell Maseredjian for a 3-0 lead.

ARCADIA ? It's back to Ohio for the San Gabriel Valley Babe Ruth All-Star squad. But it didn't come easy. Squaring-off against its area counterpart Arroyo Seco in the final game of the SoCal Babe Ruth 18 Tournament on Sunday at Arcadia High, San Gabriel needed every last at-bat to pull out a come-from-behind, 4-3, victory. Now, the team will travel to Newark, Ohio to defend its title in the Babe Ruth World Series beginning August 9. "We never give up," said San Gabriel and Crescenta Valley infielder Kris Kauppila, who was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.

PASADENA — Thirty-six games into the season and Arroyo Seco Saints Coach Aaron Milam still can't get an accurate read on his team. Milam might have gotten a better read after the Saints suffered a 6-5 loss to the Playa Vista Orioles in an elimination game of the Palomino Southern California Regional Baseball Tournament on Monday night at Jackie Robinson Field. "We are very bipolar when it comes to playing defense," said Milam, whose team committed four errors and will be the third seed from the Southern California Regional in the Palomino West Zone Tournament in Compton beginning Friday.

A black bear that went on a romp through northwest Pasadena on Thursday, coming perilously close to the 210 Freeway, evaded capture, apparently wandering back up the mountainside. The bear -- estimated to be 3 years old and weighing 275 pounds -- was first reported about 3:30 p.m. near Cleveland Elementary School at 524 Palisades St., California Fish and Wildlife spokesman Andrew Hughan said. At one point, the animal was about 20 yards from the eastbound lanes of the 210, according to a California Highway Patrol online incident log. Television footage showed the bear approaching the guardrail, then backing away from the traffic and returning to more open space, the Los Angeles Times reported . CHP cars soon arrived in the area.

Many snapshot moments occurred throughout the 2013 Little League season. Some local teams repeated achievements from a year ago, like the Arroyo Seco Saints run to the Palomino World Series and the Crescenta Valley-Foothill Junior All-Star softball team's appearance in the Southern California State tournament. Other teams had the joy of soaking up all new experiences and success. After a wild walk-off game in the District Tri-Cities tournament, the Crescenta Valley Kiwanis and Aristo minor softball teams joined forces for a Crescenta Valley 9-10 All-Star softball run in which they racked up District 16 and Section 2 titles and advanced to the Southern California State Championship final - going as far as a 9-10 team could possibly go. Many players stood out on diamonds across the area before taking their talents to other regions.

COMPTON - A season that lasted exactly 40 games and began in early June came to a conclusion for the Arroyo Seco Saints 19U summer baseball team Saturday evening. The Saints drive to a first-ever World Series title was halted by the Bayamon Vaqueros of Puerto Rico, 6-3, in the lower bracket finale of the Palomino World Series Tournament at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy in Compton. Puerto Rico's victory qualified the isle team to Monday's championship game at 7 p.m. versus the host Urban Youth Academy squad.

COMPTON - If there was one comfort for the Arroyo Seco Saints 19U summer baseball team heading into Saturday afternoon's elimination contest of the Palomino World Series Tournament, it may have been that the Saints had found themselves in a similar setting a week before. Arroyo Seco, which rallied to a West Zone Tournament title earlier this week, bounced back in its bid to win the World Series with an impressive 14-1 victory over the Central Michigan Stars in second-chance bracket action at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy.

COMPTON - Perhaps there's no easier or simpler way to describe the Arroyo Seco Saints 19U baseball team's loss than to say it suffered a lost evening Friday in Palomino World Series action. The Saints' march to a series title was derailed in one half inning, as the visiting Bayamon Vaqueros of Puerto Rico scored 12 runs on nine hits in the top of the second before eventually settling on a 16-4 victory in five innings in the second round of tournament action at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy.

COMPTON - After a week that included four straight one-run games and an exciting tournament finale, the Arroyo Seco Saints 19U baseball team enjoyed a rare reprieve Thursday afternoon. The West Zone champions spared all the drama by scoring 10 runs through the first two innings and started off the Palomino World Series Tournament with an easy 13-0 win over visiting Jakarta, Indonesia in a five-inning game at the Major League Baseball Urban Youth Academy in Compton. PHOTOS: Arroyo Seco Saints vs. Indonesia in Palomino World Series “We weren't going to take anything for granted this year, especially with what happened to us last year in the first round,” Saints Coach Aaron Milam said in reference to Arroyo Seco's 17-8 defeat to Chinese Taipei Taiwan in last year's first game of the World Series.

COMPTON - With his team celebrating behind him a few minutes after clinching a West Zone Tournament Palomino championship, Arroyo Seco 18U baseball Coach Aaron Milam reflected on the differences between 2012 and 2013. Even though in both seasons Milam's Saints clinched West Zone Tournament crowns and earned berths to the Palomino World Series, there are substantial contrasts. “I think the biggest difference is just having experience in getting to the World Series,” Milam said.
