Softball: Things are heating up as season winds down

Quite a few big games this week. I know Flintridge Sacred Heart hosts Alemany today at Glendale Sports Complex at 3. This is a re-play from the last game when Sacred Heart won after scoring int he bottom of the seventh to win, 4-3. It was Sacred Heart’s first win ever over Alemany. The game was protested before the start of the game because Alemany coaches said the pitcher’s circle was at 43 feet instead of the regulated 40 feet. The game was played under protest. I wonder if you go to any given softball field and measure the pitcher’s circle how many are exactly 40 feet. I think not. In the Rio Hondo League, Temple City visits La Canada on Tuesday. If the Spartans win that clinches the league championship. Also on Tuesday, Keppel plays at Montebello for the Almont League crown. In the Prep League, Mayfield’s season is done and clinched at least a share of the league title, a first in the school’s history. Rio Hondo Prep could garner the same honors; its big game comes at Pasadena Poly on Friday at 3:45 p.m. Any other games we’re missing that deserve mention?
