Erik Boal It was easily the most important game of the Glendale High baseball team's season and perhaps the most important start of Gerald Martinez's career. All of this pressure for a senior, and his 15 teammates, who were supposed to be enjoying their Spring Break. But after Jay Chadwick watched his team hit rock bottom with Monday's 12-run loss to Alta Loma -- a game in which the Nitros managed just one hit -- in the 40th annual Babe Herman Tournament, he needed Martinez to step up and deliver Tuesday at home against Ojai Nordhoff.

LA CAÑADA FLINTRIDGE ? With five people situated deep in the goal box, G.P. Martinez figured he stood a chance. It took some creativity and good eye coordination.

Marisa O'Neil The legal battle between a high school coach and the parent of one of his former pitchers is on its third lawsuit, with the coach hoping for a called strike in his favor. Testimony continues today in Orange County Superior Court in a $1 million, malicious-prosecution lawsuit filed by Corona del Mar High School baseball Coach John Emme, a Glendale native, against Marc Martinez, father of former student J.D. Martinez. Martinez filed two lawsuits against Emme, one in 2001 and another in 2002, alleging that the coach hurt his son's chances at a college baseball scholarship.

A 30-year-old Burbank man was sentenced Wednesday to serve 65 years to life for attempting to shoot a Glendale man he thought belonged to a rival gang. Natividad Delossantos was the second gang member to be convicted in the September 2007 shooting. His accomplice, Armando Martinez Jr., was sentenced in August to serve 35 years to life in prison for the shooting. The pair were convicted in May on two felony counts for the attempted murder of Enrique Pinela, who was shot inside the American Market on Lake Street.

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.

It’s been a long time since I’ve had such high expectations for a team to win and advance and this was that team.

It appears Alhambra resident H.G. Martinez is still "outraged" over the speeding ticket received for doing 39 mph in a school zone. It is clear from Martinez's position that the children of Glendale don't count when he hits the gas pedal while rocketing through Glendale. Somehow Martinez has the idea that just because school is not in session that all the children disappear and only by magic are in school zones during school hours. Wrong. When the Rossmoyne/Mountain Homeowners Assn.

Lester Bowie, the late Art Ensemble of Chicago trumpeter, once dissected how Louis Armstrong purveyed his art in American culture: "The true revolutionary that's out waving a gun in the streets is never effective; the police just arrest him. But the police don't ever know about the one that smiles and drops a little poison in their coffee. " Bowie might have had Alfredo Ramos Martinez, one of the pioneer modernist Mexican painters, in mind. If he's not as famous as Rivera, Kahlo, Orozco or Siqueiros, Martinez's work is worth knowing.

While it may have been his first appearance in the CIF Southern Section Eastern Division Individual Championships, Arthur Ghukasyan proved he belonged at the elite tournament Friday and Saturday. Hoover High's 145-pound wrestler fell two points shy of the fifth-place match and a potential trip to the CIF Southern Section Masters Meet when he was edged by Victor Valley's Logan Howell, 4-3, Saturday. The junior needed three wins in the second day of the elite tournament at Oak Hills High to secure a top-five spot and trip to Masters, but fell just short.

There's no secret to the success of Gio Martinez. Ask anyone who's wrestled with him or just seen him on the mat for Hoover High. “His strength,” Tornadoes sophomore Joshua Lee said of the reason for Martinez' success. “He's like crazy strong.” Lee has been Martinez's training partner for most of the year. He estimates he's won about 20% of the more than 100 matches he's had with Martinez. “I was close to beating him the other day until he just benched me off of him,” said Lee, who wrestles at 195 pounds.

MONROVIA - Hoover High's inaugural season in the Rio Hondo League was described as a roller-coaster ride by wrestling coach Mark Bitetti. The Tornadoes won their first league dual against St. Paul, but dropped the next four en route to finishing fifth in the six-team league as a team. Things started moving in the right direction again for Hoover at its first taste of the league's individual finals Saturday at Santa Fe Middle School in Monrovia. Three Hoover wrestlers - Arthur Ghukasyan, Sebastian Ghauliance and Gio Martinez - advanced to the championship round of their respective weight classes, but it was Martinez who brought home the Tornadoes first-ever individual league title by pinning St. Paul's Mark Millan 1:05 into the second period of the 220-pound match.

A year ago Saturday, the Bellarmine-Jefferson High football team took the field on homecoming night eager to triumph for the home faithful against St. Genevieve. The Valiants of Panorama City did the Guards no favors by winning convincingly. One year later, on homecoming night for St. Genevieve, Bell-Jeff took the field ready to exact revenge for last season's defeat. The Guards used junior running back Josh Martinez almost exclusively in a 55-28 win.  Bell-Jeff Coach David Machuca would not relent feeding the ball to Martinez, who finished with 32 carries for 320 yards rushing and five touchdowns.

From mental sharpness to physical grit, Gio Martinez has it all covered for the Hoover High football team from his central position in the Tornadoes' offensive line. Hoover's toughest player and cerebral leader, the senior center will bear numerous responsibilities this season, not the least of which are the example he sets with his hard-nosed play and the role of coach on the field he will play in organizing the offense prior to every snap. "If I mess up, the whole offense messes up, so it depends on me a lot," Martinez says.
