Player of the year: Marcos Briones, Alhambra, Sr.
They won’t soon forget about Marcos Briones around Alhambra High School. The record books make that a certainty.
Briones just recently wrapped up a prep baseball career, the feats of which surely won’t be repeated any time soon. For this season, though, he was a force both on the mound and at the plate.
After posting a minuscule 0.40 ERA in 70 2/3 innings pitched, winning nine games and saving four others, and hitting .333 with 16 RBIs and 15 runs scored, Briones is the Star-News Player of the Year.
Coach of the year: Mack Paciorek, San Marino
Not many coaches could lose their ace during nonleague and then proceed to win a league championship. That’s exactly what Paciorek did at San Marino this spring. The Titans lost pitcher Jeff Bain to injury during nonleague and still went on to win the Rio Hondo League championship. It was the school’s first league title in baseball since 1997. Paciorek never let his team skip a beat en route to winning 19 games and a CIF playoff game before a narrow loss to Oaks Christian in the second round of the playoffs.
