Charles Rich Michael Pech completed the checklist with patience and shrewdness. It didn't take the brawny La Crescenta Babe Ruth All-Star athlete long to finish the list after he observed the field and delivered three hits. Pech had two singles and a two-run home run Saturday to lead La Crescenta to a 10-0 victory against Inland Valley in a first-round game of the Babe Ruth 13-year-old Southern California State Tournament in Simi Valley. The game was called in the bottom of the fifth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Four straight at-bats saw La Crescenta’s Ted Boeke only an out away from sending his team to Eureka and euphoria. Then he found himself just one strike away. That final strike came — and then got away. But Riley Sullivan tracked it down and promptly turned catastrophe into jubilance, as Sullivan’s long throw from the third-base side of home plate to first got there just in front of Westchester runner Hayden Boehle for the final out of the game, giving La Crescenta a 2-0 victory in the championship game of the Babe Ruth 13-year-old Southern California All-Star Tournament at Stengel Field on Tuesday evening.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — La Crescenta’s four-game run in the Babe Ruth 13-15-year old State All-Star Tournament began with a shutout loss to Torrance on Saturday and ended the same way in the semifinal round on Tuesday evening. For the second time in four days, Torrance ace Ralph Ramirez kept La Crescenta’s batters anxious and off-balance at the plate, turning in a three-hit complete game effort to pace a 9-0 win Tuesday at Stengel Field in the wake of an equally impressive 7-0 blanking on Saturday at Stengel.

GLENDALE — The La Crescenta 14-year-old Babe Ruth baseball team found itself in a tough predicament — having to compete in four games in less than 48 hours. While La Crescenta was able to get through the grueling schedule of the Southern California State Tournament, the exhaustion from the high level of competition ultimately led to the closure of its season. Still, La Crescenta went down to its final at-bat with the bases loaded in a 10-6 loss to El Segundo in the tournament's championship game Sunday at Thousand Oaks High.

Less than 24 hours removed from a heartbreaking 7-6 loss that saw it give up a six-run lead, the La Crescenta 14-year-old Babe Ruth squad bounced back to the tune of a 14-0 mercy-rule win against Simi Valley in five innings on Saturday afternoon at Stengel Field in a loser's bracket elimination game of the Babe Ruth 14-year-old Southern California Tournament. "I guess it's safe to say that pretty bad loss is far behind us," La Crescenta Coach Marcel Martinez said. Jonny Psaltis twirled five innings of two-hit, shutout ball, striking out four and not allowing a Simi Valley runner to get past second base.

LOS ANGELES — Just like they were in Ohio in August, all eyes were on the members of the San Gabriel Valley Babe Ruth All-Stars on Thursday. Except this stage might just have been a bit grander. The squad stood alone on the field at Dodger Stadium as it was honored for capturing the 16-18 Babe Ruth World Series title, prior to the Dodgers’ game with the San Diego Padres. Some picked pieces of the infield grass, others used their cell phones to capture lasting images and each and every member heard their name echo through the stadium during individual introductions.

For nearly the first half of its game Tuesday night, the members of the La Crescenta 15-year-old Babe Ruth team appeared to have things in order.

The game was called in the bottom of the sixth inning because of the 10-run mercy rule. “We got off to a great start and we were able to hang in there,” La Crescenta Coach Glenn Pawlik said.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Sometimes miracles come about in mysterious ways. On other occasions, they can appear to literally fall from the sky, which was the case for the Crescenta Valley Tile Babe Ruth baseball team on Tuesday evening. Tile received a two-run error on a dropped popup in its final at-bat in the seventh inning that tied its if-necessary championship game versus La Crescenta Trotta before scoring an additional run an inning later in winning the game, 3-2, and capturing the La Crescenta Babe Ruth 13-15 Tournament title at Stengel Field.
