PACOIMA - Things took a turn for the better for Burbank High girls' golfer Irene Maemura and the Crescenta Valley squad on Monday during the fourth Pacific League match of the season at Hansen Dam Golf Course. Maemura became the first athlete from the league field beside Crescenta Valley's Jocelyn Chia to earn medalist honors this season, while Crescenta Valley took another step closer to winning its first league championship since 2007. Maemura carded a three-under-par 37 to edge Chia, the league's defending individual champion, by one stroke.

Edgar Melik-Stepanyan A little less than a week remaining before Dave Ritchie finally ends his hectic schedule. A little more than a dozen games before Ritchie and his volunteers put an end to their Little League responsibilities. And then, at least for Ritchie, the District 16 Administrator, it's his turn to take a well-deserved vacation. But not before District 16 hosts the Senior Softball and Minor Baseball Section 2 Tournaments at Montrose Park, beginning this afternoon at noon and 1 p.m., respectively.

Charles Rich GRANADA HILLS -- A car alarm wailed briefly in a nearby parking lot when Sara Ramirez stepped into the batter's box with the bases loaded Sunday. Then an alarm went off simoultaneasouly in the mind of the Glendale Senior softball player, who aimed to break out of a mini hitting slump. Ramirez solved her hitting troubles with a three-run double in the first inning to lead Glendale to a 7-1 victory against Temple City in a second-round game of the Section 2 Tournament at Granada Hills Little League Field on Sunday.

Mirjam Swanson TUJUNGA -- This All-Star Little League business can be cutthroat. If you don't show up ready to play -- and play hard -- chances are you won't be playing for long in the double-elimination District 16 Major Baseball Tournament. The 11- and 12-year-olds on the Verdugo League team realize as much now, having lost to the Vaquero League squad, 10-0. Tuesday's game was called in the fifth inning on account of the 10-run mercy rule, despite Vaquero only having gotten five hits at Tujunga Little League Field.

Charles Rich Try to find a weak spot from top to bottom in a lineup packed with contact hitters. There aren't many home run hitters, just a group that can spray singles and doubles around the field quite well. The Crescenta Valley Minor Baseball team showed its form as it produced 15 hits -- including 13 singles -- to post a 16-0 victory Tuesday against Jewish War Veterans in the championship contest of the Little League District 16 All-Star Tournament at Babe Herman Field.

NORTH GLENDALE — When local baseball squads trot onto Stengel Field this fall, players and their fans may concentrate more on the game knowing that the park’s aging lights are no longer at risk of tumbling down. Construction crews using cranes and drills began work Monday to replace seven light poles at the park, after the city deemed the structures safety hazards. After years of moisture build-up, the bases of the more than 50-year-old poles had begun to corrode and needed to be fixed immediately to protect players and spectators, city Parks Services Administrator Gary Marello said.

ENCINO — Crescenta Valley Major All-Star baseball Coach Drew Arredondo knew his team would be in for a battle when it met Encino in the Section 2 Tournament championship game Tuesday night. Nearly two hours after the first pitch was tossed, Arredondo saw firsthand how dangerous Encino could be with its bats. "They are a polished team and they definitely are a solid team top to bottom," Arredondo said after Crescenta Valley saw its season come to an end with a 19-4 loss to Encino at Encino Little League Fields.

GLENDALE — A change of scenery didn't suit the Crescenta Valley Junior Baseball All-Star team on Saturday. The District 16 champions made the long trip to take on the District 51 champion Tehachapi squad at its home Tehachapi Little League Fields in the Section 2 Tournament Saturday. Two costly Crescenta Valley errors were turned into two runs in the fourth inning and a 3-1 Tehachapi win. "I just think that being 110 miles away from home, the atmosphere is just a little bit different," said Peter Cosfol, Crescenta Valley's coach.
