Mt. Baldy baseball teams to compete at LoanMart Field

For years the Baseline has held a one-day event where all the league’s baseball teams play at LoanMart Field (formerly known as the Epicenter).

Well this year the Mt. Baldy League will do the same this Saturday and all are excited about playing on the bigger stage.

Alta Loma has played in the “Battle of the Baseline” before as it only moved to the Mt. Baldy from the Baseline two years ago.

“Our kids are excited about it,” says first-year Don Lugo baseball coach Jeff Abel. “They’ve heard other kids talk about the experience and its great that how teams in our league will have that experience too.”

There will be three games on the day, the first pitting Ontario against Chaffey at 11 a.m. it will be followed by Colony against Montclair at 2, with the night capped off by Alta Loma against Don Lugo at 5 p.m.

There had been talk in recent years about the Mt. Baldy following the example of the Baseline but it was Montclair coach Chris Castro the got the ball rolling this year. He had discussions with the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes Director of Group Sales Kyle Burleson and the details were quickly ironed out.

It was a matter of finding the right weekend when the Quakes were on the road but that didn’t prove to be too difficult.

“Things really fell into place,” Castro said. “We threw out a couple of dates and found one that was good for everyone.”

Tickets can be purchased at each of the schools, through the players and coaches.

Ayala’s John Edgar gets Wooden Award

It was quite the breakout season for Ayala basketball standout John Edgar.

He transferred to the school from Chino Hills his sophomore year so it wasn’t until last year he got comfortable there.

This year he wasn’t just the team’s leading scorer and rebounder (23 ppg, 10.3 rpg). He helped the Bulldogs to a CIF Southern Section title as well as a state runner-up finish.

He was CIF Player of Year in Division 2-AA and Edgarwas the Division II recipient of the prestigious Wooden Award.

Festivities were held on Friday, with the high school honorees getting to take in the presentation to the college winner at the Nokia Theater.

“It was a lot of fun being around a lot of great players,” Edgar said. “This season really has been a dream come true for me and this team.”

This season launched Edgar on to the radar of many colleges. He didn’t have a lot of interest before the season started but that has changed. He just got his first offer from Division I Incarnate Word (Tex.).

A lot of Division II schools are also interested.

He is playing travel ball with the OC Pride and will soon be competing in a tournament in Las Vegas that could open more doors.

“I really worked hard on my game and it is all paying off,” Edgar said.
