It’s my turn to take one of those mandatory vacations you have to take, so I’m gone for a week and leaving Stevie R., and Aram in charge of all things, including the blog. The CIF State boys and girls basketball, and girls and boys soccer pairings will be released today on the state website. Steve Ramirez will post the pairings later, and will update most scores, including baseball, softball tournaments and schedules on the blog. In soccer, Baldwin Park (boys), San Dimas (girls) and Bishop Amat (girls) are all locks for the state tourney, and you might even see Amat face San Dimas in the D-2 playoffs. In girls baketball, I’m hearing that Diamond Ranch, Bishop Amat and Bonita will all make it, though not as confident about La Veren Lutheran and Bonita boys, but we shall find out. See ya in a week.
STATS: Just created a MaxPreps made easy widget for area baseball fans which I will post throughout the season. Now if baseball coaches update rosters, stats and schedules, this widget will be golden, and if there is enough participation, I will run leaders each week in the Tribune. As it is, very few teams are updating scores or providing rosters, not to mention stats, which makes it very hard to follow your local teams, especially when we have more than 35 in the area. I can’t do it alone, if you want to see your team stats updated in the paper, start with your head baseball coach before you send emails my way. Stats and information has become so secretive not even Amat has a baseball roster posted yet.
