GLENDALE — By midsummer, baseball games are usually already little more than a memory at Stengel Field. But when the summer of 2011 really starts heating up, local baseball will be just getting into full swing. The California Collegiate League, one of the premiere amateur collegiate summer baseball leagues in the country, announced on Friday that it will be expanding into Glendale, where its newest franchise will take up residence at Stengel Field. "Bringing a collegiate league to the city of Glendale is definitely going to be one of the best things to happen to this area," said Glendale Community College baseball Coach Chris Cicuto, whose team is one of the primary residents of Stengel Field along with the Crescenta Valley High baseball team.

GLENDALE — When the California Collegiate League announced its intention in September to expand into Glendale this coming summer, the news figured to raise the profile of amateur baseball in the Jewel City. It's certainly had that effect on the Glendale Community College baseball program, according to Coach Chris Cicuto, who largely credits the arrival of the Glendale Angelenos with adding a respected Major League Baseball veteran to his coaching staff and an infusion of experienced players to his roster.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE — Though the members of the Glendale Angelenos lost their first California Collegiate League contest in front of more than an estimated 100 fans at Stengel Field on Friday night, a late-inning comeback attempt left them thinking positive for the remainder of their first league series.

A plan to give Stengel Field an extended rest this summer could drastically cut short the Glendale Angelenos' summer collegiate baseball season . Jess Duran, the Director of Community Services and Parks for the city of Glendale, said his department is planning on doing some resurfacing maintenance at Stengel in July and resting the field the rest of the summer. "This past year there were some questions about the condition of the field," Duran said, "and we think part of it is because it doesn't have enough down time where no one is on the field for it to regenerate.

In its first two seasons of existence, the Glendale Angelenos have gone from an expansion team seeking an identity in a premier baseball collegiate league to an independent program boasting a phenomenal record. The Angelenos won 24 games in 2011 before posting 40 victories last season, providing Glendale General Manager and Coach Tony Riviera reason for optimism and setting loftier goals for the 2013 season, which will kick off at 5 p.m. Thursday with a California Summer Collegiate League North Division contest against the host East L.A. Dodgers at Warren High in Downey.

Aside from going independent after severing ties with the California Collegiate League last winter, the Glendale Angelenos didn't change a whole lot about their approach to fielding a summer collegiate baseball team. Most of the frontline players from last year's inaugural season are back and General Manager and Coach Tony Riviera has continued to heavily mine talent from Glendale Community College's ranks to fill in the rest of the lineup. "Probably the most important part of baseball is consistency, so what I wanted to make sure of is that we had the opportunity to put up a really talented season," said Riviera, whose team will once again play its home games at Stengel Field, where it opens the season at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday against the EastL.A.

GLENDALE - Though it didn't produce a winning record in its first year of existence, members of the Glendale Angelenos said expectations were largely met. On and off the field, the season, which began in late-May and concluded Sunday, proved to be a challenge for the baseball team that finished 24-26 and 11-25 for sixth place in the competitive California Collegiate League. The original roster began to turn over almost immediately after a bevy of players left the Angelenos after they were selected in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft in early June.

NORTHEAST GLENDALE - Infield singles are rare for Chad Nacapoy. If he hits one, he's running with his head down while chugging to first base. Nacapoy, a catcher on the Glendale Angelenos, came across that situation in the bottom of the ninth inning with the bases loaded and two out. Nacapoy hit a hard grounder to third and just beat the throw to first base to give host Glendale an 8-7 California Collegiate League victory against the Major...
