  • spartan gold

    Garza is overated!!!! Spartenvilla will expose Bonita and humiliate there batters, Fred, you have the ratings all wrong.
    Damien is # 1 and buy the end of the year youl be on the bandwagbegone my friend !
    Garzas a good little picher but we can HIT! Bonitas got no hitters this year, no power, a weak line up!!!and no defence !
    Se ya Friday!

  • haha

    spartan gold did you go to Damien? learn how to spell damn that’s embarrassing.


    Spartan gold… do they have English classes at Damien or are they just optional? It took me a few minutes to decipher what you were trying to say.

  • spartan gold

    Noone from bonita could make are team, we our stronger up the mittle and can hit ! other then garza who you got? You lost all yore good players last year!
    bonita has long ben knowen as damiens red headed steepchild runt!. you mite have the turd beast hi shool baseball team in la verne! And yor crybabys!
    diapher that!

  • socalbaseball fan

    Spartans fans time to be humble as Garza will make your team look bad. People root against your team due to its mouthy fans. Look what happened to your hoops team. The division was set up for Damien to win a cifss title.

  • oaktown

    Spartan Gold,
    Stop know you are an outrageous embarrasment to the entire Damien community.

  • Coach Green Gold

    Spartan gold doesnt rep our school well, but he makes some good points.
    1, Weak retuning players.
    2, No second pitcher.
    3, Bonita has mouthy fans!!!
    4, Weak middle, other than Row!
    5, No power = no RBIS
    6, Cant win the big one!
    7, No strong underclassmen.
    8, No strong seniors.
    9, All of your players would be ineligible here at Damien!

    P.S. socalbaseball fan, you shouldnt be popping of about basketball! How did you do against Pasadena Wednesday? Ooops!

  • sgvbaseballfan

    West Covina will be comin strong this year! Larios at short, Dorado being an all around player. Football star salgado but isnt too good out there in right!!!! They have some excellent pitching over at WC! DORADO GARCIA LARIOS the freshman pitcher from last year. Najera will be smackin that ball! Look out for the bulldogs this year!

  • socalbaseball fan

    I am not a Bonita fan just a baseball fan who sees a lot of prep baseball mainly in the IE. 3 teams I will watch this year are Redlands, REV,and Yucaipa. I used to live in the SGV and was never a fan of Damien baseball especially when Bobby Sheridan was the coach.

  • ConcuSSionSymptomS

    HOLY BALLS!!! Is this what one can expect from a “Damien Education”?!?!?!

    That is TERRIBLE!!! Dude, before you start calling out anyone for any reason, you had better learn the language in which you are using!

    Thank “god” for my public school education…

  • Stupid

    If you can tell that Spartan Gold is from Bonita your as stupid as him.

  • Spartans Fan

    Garza is a great pitcher, so is Chad Lee for Damien, I say whoever scores 1st will win, I see Damien having a tad more offense than Bonita.

  • Oh, those Bonita fans are funny

    Even an idiot can tell that “spartan gold” is a Bonita fan.

  • Turn 2

    Hey all of you Damien crap talkers. Did you ever think this Damien cat with all the grammar challenges isn’t a Damien grad!! Get a life guys. This is about baseball anyway not a person’s education. We should see some quality baseball today from both teams! Plain & simple……

  • Spartan gold

    Bonita buys con’t hit

  • SGV Baseball

    Bonita dominating 6-0.

  • Damien Who?

    Sparta Goldie

    What’s next? LMAO

  • Baseball fan

    I am neither for Damien or Bonita but these Damien fans have no room to talk. Bonita outplayed, out hustled and out smarted their opponent. As the old saying goes. Scoreboard doesnt lie!!!! Bonita’s starting 9 showed that they can compete with anyone in the valley despite losing key players. Damien had a chance to knock a shaky Garza out of the game three times!!!!! But Garza, the MVP he is, showed why his era is .51. This kid is the real deal…and as for up the middle defense comparisons, Damien doesn’t stand a chance. JUST AN OBSERVER.

  • sports man

    Just watched the La Puente vs Los Altos game La puente looks really good, winning 10-1. Amazing team watch our for them?

  • WarriorBaseball

    Great, and relatively easy victory for the Warriors over the Conquerors today. Rest assured, the Warriors will put together a strong season and one that is emblematic of the ever improving athletic program that La Puente High School has. Go Warriors!

  • Bishop

    Ha ha! Love the smack talk. I only have a son on the Fullerton Freshman team that beat my alma mater Alta Loma High School today on a walk off hit. Enjoy!

  • Time will tell

    baseball fan

    Agree with everything except Garza really wasnt shaky at all. I think Damien collect total of four hits and one questionable if ruled an error or not. Many punch outs and just total command of game throughout six scoreless innings.

    Everybody will be gunning for this kid this year. How do you repeat such a great year like he had last year? Only way I know is “within ones self” and that’s just what we might see.

  • Mclovin

    Did any of you guys watch the game ? It was clear Damien played scared they have a couple of nice players. But Did you see the 3-4-5 hitters for bonita im pretty sure Row was 2-3 with 4 RBIs Castro 3-4 with 1 Rbi. Henley had a nice game. And Jake blundt Hit a nice line drive in the gap!! Bonita is much better on defense and the best COACH in this area . Great job by the BOHI young men.
