GLENDALE ? A local tournament that had become a staple during spring break will return. Following a three-year hiatus, the Babe Herman Tournament will spring back into action beginning Saturday. Ten high school baseball teams, highlighted locally by host Crescenta Valley, will compete in the event, which is presented by the West Glendale Gateway Kiwanis Club and the Crescenta Valley Baseball Program. The tournament began in 1964 and was held all but one year through 2006. The event, which features some quality programs from around the region and state, wasn?

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan The Yankee Major Baseball team hasn't let up all year, and it wasn't about to start Friday. Not with the season hanging in the balance. And especially not with an appearance in the Little League District 16 Tri-Cities Tournament championship game on the line. The Yankees hung around long enough to stay in the game, and cranked out six runs in the eighth inning to come away with an 11-5 second-chance bracket final win against the Landry's at Babe Herman Field.

Sergei Aftandelian Tujunga pitcher Jeff Obar was everything as advertised in his team's 6-0 win against Foothill on Wednesday night at Babe Herman Field. The left-handed pitcher tossed a three-hit shutout, fanning seven and walking only one batter in leading his team to the Little League District 16 Major Baseball 11- and 12-year-old All-Star championship. Obar (2-0) was economical with his pitches, firing just 87 total. He even drove in an insurance run in the fifth with a run-scoring single.

City shouldn't forget investments in future To the city of Glendale: On July 22, we had our first family baseball game. Thanks for the use of your field. But my brother-in-law and I were amazed. Our kids played at Babe Herman 20 to 25 years ago, and the same divots, same weeds and the same bare spots are still there in the outfield. Recently, a father donated a great scoreboard in honor of his son. New lights have been installed. Why can't something be done to improve this great baseball field?

Paul Clinton GLENDALE -- As diversion from the hardships of the Great Depression, Glendale residents turned their attention to movies, ball fields and the exploits of the city's more famous residents during the 1930s. Making his first movie in 1929, Glendale High School graduate John Wayne would become one of the brightest stars in Hollywood by the end of the 1930s. Wayne, who changed his name from Marion Morrison, made about 60 movies in the decade.

Peter Samore GLENDALE Brian King can easily be mistaken for a high school baseball player. He is 5-feet-7 and his regular season statistics included a .588 batting average with nine home runs and 37 runs batted in. On the mound, King posted a 1.53 earned-run average and 112 strikeouts in 51 innings pitched. Opposing batters got only 18 hits and 13 earned runs off him. King would be leading his team deep into the CIF postseason if he were in high school.

Erik Boal Two quality 9- and 10-year-old baseball teams and two class acts for coaches met Thursday night in the if-necessary championship game of the Little League District 16 All-Star Tournament at Babe Herman Field. But in the end, there would be only one winner and one group moving on to Saturday's Section 2 Tournament and that team was Crescenta Valley. Behind a strong outing from right-hander Nick Dragovich and an opportunistic offense that walked six times and stole five bases, CV was able to win the rubber game against a resilient Jewish War Veterans team, 10-3, to capture the District 16 title.

Erik Boal During the next two weeks, more than 70 baseball and softball games in six divisions will be contested at eight locations.

Beginning with four contests Monday, more than 700 8- to 14-year-old boys and girls will take to diamonds in Glendale, La Crescenta, Montrose and Tujunga, all bidding to capture a championship in their respective divisions.

GLENDALE - On his final pitch Wednesday afternoon, Tanner Carrico hit the outside corner. With two outs in the top of the seventh inning, his changeup breezed across the plate and caught Alexis Miranda looking, resulting in a called third strike. It served as the exclamation point for the senior right-hander, who tossed the first no-hitter of his career. Carrico threw seven shutout innings in the final game of the Babe Herman Tournament to propel the Crescenta Valley baseball team to a 3-0 victory over Birmingham High at Stengel Field.

GLENDALE - Jordan Rodgers had the Crescenta Valley High baseball team's number on Saturday night. The La Salle starting pitcher struck out seven batters over six innings and also went two for three at the plate to lead the Lancers to a 6-3 nonleague victory over the Falcons at Stengel Field in the teams' first contest of the Babe Herman Tournament. The game was called with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning when the lights went out. “He was solid,” Crescenta Valley freshman catcher Kewis Ledesma said of the right-handed senior.

GLENDALE - Glendale High's baseball team has faced some tough pitching in nonleague action so far and its offense just hasn't found a way to overcome the bigger arms yet. Glendale, taking part in its first game of the Babe Herman Tournament on Saturday morning, looked, at times, overwhelmed at the plate, as Village Christian's Chris Davidson had his way with the lineup and led the Crusaders to a 4-1 win at Glendale High School. Like Johnson in the opener, Davidson struck out 13 batters, while allowing three hits and two walks in a complete game gem.  “He had command, never got behind, threw curveballs for first-pitch strikes,” said first-year Nitros Coach Alan Eberhart, whose team lost for the first time this season by more than one run. “We were overmatched and never really responded.” The Nitros (2-4)

GLENDALE - For most of Tuesday night, it appeared that the Crescenta Valley and Burbank Major baseball all-star teams would be in line for some suspense in the championship game of the District 16 Tournament. Suspense turned into suspension after four sprinklers on the infield at Babe Herman Field went on automatically at 10 p.m. It puts plans on hold for a possible celebration by Burbank, which needed three outs to extend its season. It also put Crescenta Valley in a waiting mode to see if it can provide a dramatic comeback attempt.

GLENDALE - While the Glendale High baseball team is only six games into its season under first-year co-coach Chris Funaro, the Nitros' new leader has developed two different lineups - one geared toward offense and the other defense. Funaro went with the defensive grouping Saturday in a Babe Herman Tournament contest with visiting Granada Hills. Unfortunately for the Nitros, it showed as they were held to three hits and shut out in a 5-0 loss to bring their record to 1-5 this season.

SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- If nothing else, the Crescenta Valley High baseball team got a moral victory Saturday when Troy Prasertsit broke up a no-hitter in the top of the seventh inning. It was far from enough for the Falcons in the championship game of the 47th annual Babe Herman Tournament, as Chatsworth piled on for a 12-2 victory at Stengel Field. Prasertsit's soft line drive that came with two strikes just found its way past the Chancellors diving first baseman, and sparked CV's only positive inning of the evening.

After learning Wednesday afternoon that the championship contest of the 44th annual Babe Herman Tournament would be postponed because of inclement weather, Crescenta Valley High baseball Coach Phil Torres immediately searched for a makeup date. Crescenta Valley and Chatsworth were scheduled to participate in the title game Wednesday at Stengel Field, but rain fell overnight and throughout the morning and forced the contest to be postponed. Torres said the title game will be held at 6 p.m. Saturday, April 28 at Stengel.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Even though the Crescenta Valley High baseball team had led Sherman Oaks Notre Dame since the first inning of Tuesday night's Babe Herman Tournament semifinal at Stengel Field, the Falcons were still lacking a big hit with runners on base to break the game open through the first three frames. Michael Russo changed all that with a bases-loaded line-drive off the Knights first baseman's glove that scored two runs and sparked a four-run third inning. The floodgates were then opened for a five-run fourth and ultimately a lopsided 12-4 win for Crescenta Valley, which went 3-0 to win the National Division and will meet American Division winner Chatsworth in the tournament championship at 7 p.m. tonight.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Having essentially steamrolled its previous two opponents en route to the championship game of the 45th annual Babe Herman Tournament, Crescenta Valley High's baseball team found itself in the unfamiliar setting of a nailbiter on Wednesday night. But the championship against West Torrance, though distinct in its close nature, concluded as the last 13 games have for the Falcons — with them emerging victorious. On the strength of a lights-out relief appearance and a walk-off single in the bottom of the eighth inning by Elliott Surrey, Crescenta Valley collected its first Babe Herman title since 2005 with a dramatic 1-0 win over West Torrance at Stengel Field.
