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.

MONTROSE — Despite having to deal with some extenuating circumstances, Tommy’s Major Softball team battled all the way through its final plate appearance. Throughout most of the Tri-Cities District 16 Little League Tournament of Champions, Tommy’s barely had enough players to field a full squad. Sometimes the team didn’t have enough players to play an entire contest. Tommy’s saw its season conclude Friday night with a 7-6 loss to the Tujunga Dynamites in a tournament elimination game at Montrose Park.

MONTROSE — Scott Vinceri credits his experiences playing T-ball in the Crescenta Valley Little League system with helping him become a better student in school. Recently, the 8-year-old La Crescenta resident paid back the favor by winning an essay contest sponsored by small motor manufacturer Briggs and Stratton that offered a prize worth over $5,000 toward the beautification and maintenance of Montrose Park, the home field of Crescenta Valley Little League. “The biggest result of sports has been a sense of confidence in myself,” Vinceri said on Tuesday while quoting from the short essay that made him the Los Angeles winner of the national Diamonds in the Rough contest.

The board of directors voted unanimously Thursday that all of the more than 100 member storefronts would be eligible for the rebate if payments are made by a January 2015 deadline. A majority of business owners pay the minimum of $190, while only eight of them, such as major banks, pay more than $3,000, said Dale Dawson, owner of Mountain Rose Gifts and business administrator for the association.

As the Montrose Shopping Park Assn. has improved its financial footing over the past few years , board members who control the business promotions group are considering a one-time rollback of fees they charge to local businesses. The fee break would give some respite to owners still struggling to bounce back from the protracted recession and restore confidence in the business improvement district, Board President Andre Ordubegian said at a meeting on Thursday. The board has been working to improve its reputation among its membership since former Councilman John Drayman was indicted for allegedly embezzling more than $304,000 from the shopping park's weekly farmer's market , which he helped run. Drayman is currently out on bail awaiting his criminal trial.

As Ted Boeke was told by his father, and as he tells it now, he had a baseball with him since he arrived. “He brought me my first baseball the day I was born,” Boeke says of his father. While Boeke's dad bestowed his son with his first baseball on the first day of his life, setting it right next to his baby boy, he has never tired of it roughly 17 years later. “I'm just one of those kids that eats, drinks and sleeps baseball,” Boeke says. “I could never get enough of it. I don't know what I would do without it.” Now, following an ultra-successful senior season on the baseball diamond for Crescenta Valley High, Boeke is moving on to play at Loyola Marymount University.

GLENDALE - It was just one of those baseball games where the Crescenta Valley 10-11 All-Star team could do no wrong, and the Foothill-Jewel City/Jewish War Veterans squad couldn't catch a break. “Our team is from top to bottom capable,” said Crescenta Valley Coach Dean Baker. “All 12, 13 kids can definitely hit the ball. We look for them to put up good numbers all through out.” And they certainly put up good numbers, as Crescenta Valley defeated Foothill, 24-0, in the opening round of the District 16 tournament at Montrose Park on Friday.

When former Councilman John Drayman didn't turn in money he collected from the Montrose Harvest Market on time, that should have been a warning sign that something was amiss, said an accountant who spoke to market officials about improving their financial practices. “Obviously, the fact that he didn't make deposits in a timely manner should have been a red light” even though Drayman was a trusted person, said Pasadena accountant Steven Fishman at the Montrose Shopping Park Assn.
