It was a banner evening for Glendale Angelenos pitcher Thomas Korn, who flirted with perfection in Wednesday evening's California Collegiate Summer League baseball game. Korn, a former Pasadena High standout, tossed 7 2/3 innings of no-hit ball before surrendering consecutive hits in an Angelenos 4-0 victory over the SoCal Halos at Stengel Field. The incoming York College of Nebraska senior struck out 10 batters before being taken out and replaced by relievers Julian Jarrard and Michael Noteware.

With last year's historic squad having won the Western State Conference before advancing all the way to the state tournament, the 2012 Glendale Community College baseball team inherited a lofty standard of success, even though it featured few holdovers from its predecessor. The Vaqueros lived up to the expectations and effectively maintained Glendale's status as a contender, as the team is currently back in the playoffs. They also brought home the program's second straight WSC South Division title and reaped the rewards when the all-conference team was released recently.

Peter Fuertes GLENDALE -- On paper, the St. Francis High baseball team looked as good as any in the area. But when you're in the Mission League, home of powerhouses such as Crespi and Sherman Oaks Notre Dame highs, the competition can be murderous, as the Golden Knights found out, finishing with an 11-11-1 overall record and 4-7-1 in league. Nonetheless, there were still outstanding performances turned in by Golden Knight individuals, and they were recognized by their league peers.

One count each of first-degree rape and first-degree sex offense might permanently derail the career and aspirations of Glendale High alumnus Jesse Meaux. The 23-year-old pitcher was recently arrested and charged with the serious offenses in North Carolina, where Meaux is a member of the Asheville Tourists, a minor league baseball team and low Class-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies. Meaux and Tourists teammate Michael Mason were both immediately arrested after warrants were issued Aug. 1 involving an alleged incident July 27.

In Burbank High softball lore, all pitchers are compared to former Bulldogs pitching sensation Debby Day. Day, a 1987 Burbank graduate and three-time All-CIF Southern Section hurler, was a dominant force as a high school pitcher, notching two perfect games in a row - and three in her career - as a senior. She went on to earn All-America honors at the University of Arizona, helping the Wildcats win the 1991 NCAA Championship. Burbank and Arizona both inducted Day into their hall of fames.

The following are updates on area Major League Baseball players.

The following are highlights from the 2012 season for local athletes playing Major League Baseball. ESTRADA MAKES PITCH TO BE STARTER At the onset of the 2012 season, the Milwaukee Brewers seemed to be set on using former Glendale Community College standout Marco Estrada as a long reliever/spot starter out of the bullpen. The club may have to reassess those plans going forward, as Estrada proved himself to be a more than viable option for every-fifth-day duty when he was thrust into the Brewers' rotation after returning from a stint on the disabled list due to a strained right quadriceps on June 26. Sitting at 0-3 with a 4.50 earned-run average to that point, Estrada went on to finish the season 5-7 with a 3.64 ERA, striking out 143 batters to just 29 walks.

Ryan Sherriff felt an immediate psychological void. With his father no longer in the stands to watch him pitch, Sherriff lost his chief inspiration and reached what he initially perceived to be a final decision - no more baseball. Larry Sherriff had attended most of his son's games for the past decade until he died Jan. 9 at 57 from complications of multiple myeloma, or cancer of the blood.
