SOFTBALL: South Pasadena surprises Temple City

Let’s just say you had to see this one to believe it.
South Pasadena raced out to a 7-1 lead after two, but Nichole Parada was pulled after two innings. Temple City took advantage and scored eight runs on just one hit and six walks to take a 9-7 lead after three. The Tigers tied it with a pair of runs in the fourth, and took the lead for good in the fifth on a pair of two-run homers by Michelle Mun and Amanda Castro.
Temple City is still in the driver’s seat for the league championship, but the Tigers remained just one game back behind La Canada, a 2-1 winner in eight innings over Monrovia, for second.

CIF-SS ASSOCIATION RULE TO BE ELIMINATED

I’ve talked to a few coaches who are quite happy about this ruling.
There are some who believe this could put a damper, or even an end eventually to club sports, although I’m not ready to buy that just yet.

My Question: What are your thoughts? Will this help every team and school, or just a select few? Also, what about coaches in one sport wanting to practice or work out at certain times, and a player has a game in another sport? Will this do away with the multi-sport athlete?
