    Rumor has it Claremont beat Chino Hills today, tightening up the Sierra League.

  • Strike Three

    Damien coaching is not very good. Its time to get Bast off 3rd base because he’s completely clueless as a base coach.

    Put the guy in the bullpen and leave him there. He’s not a play caller and doesn’t understand how to coach the bases. Just because you played the game doesn’t mean you know how to coach the game. Go learn alot more about coaching then return back to the box.

    Time for Albert to make some serious coaching changes or the Admin needs to evaluate the program. Our kids deserve better…

  • the truth

    or how about time that albert just coaches more himself…the guy is such a fraud as a coach. And you are right having dr bast on third is a joke. He is an awesome surgeon, but my gosh coaching on his off time?? This isnt travel ball 13u! Skippy as well with his weird theories are comical also. Damien best days are in the way past, even as a school.

  • spartan parent

    I blame Al Leyva Much more than Bast. Leyva could never win the big game at clare and hes lost his big games while at damien too. Not the leader he needs to be and the talent level at damien is average. They need pitching and a pitching coach real bad, their catching has been mediocre as well.

  • herniated disk

    Doubt bast is going anywhere. He paid for the entire field renovation and got the field named for tom Carroll..the real question is why he wants to coach? Leyvas hands are tied but why does he have him on third? Agree leyva isn’t much but better than the avg hs coach. Damien is in transition, they are no longer a big boy school

  • bringbackvasquez

    Dr Bast is there because his daughter dates one of the players. Make sure that everything works out like it should. Chaperone things a little, what the heck its not like he has else to do lol just a couple surgeries. And if he cant make it to practice or a game one day because of the hospital or something its no big deal right? lol Damien hs folks. Leyva still lives off big brother coaching in the big leagues. Bring back Vasquez at least the crap that went on in his clubhouse was manly stuff. You know girls, porn, a few beers no big deal

  • skippy

    Hey guys dont leave skip claprood out of this. Im sure the kids dread having to listen to his 1975 theories on winning baseball. Do the kids have to buy his book like they used to have to at citrus? what an oddball this guy is. The worst part is Al Leyva wont make a decision before consulting with him

  • youmeangrampaclaprood?

    Enough said…

    I thought you paid for your child to get a better education than in a public school, I didn’t realize sports were so important.

  • Truth be told

    LOL…its not even a better education. Thats the other dirty little secret

  • sorry

    I know…the truth hurts doesn’t it? Don’t let the point get lost here.

  • 1980

    Skip was a jerk when I played for him in 1980 and sure he is a jerl now. The kids a Damien have to be misreable playing for him.

  • Circus Act

    Leyva has be held accountable here. He’s the one that hired Skippy and Stevie Wonder. The money man can’t coach at all, but I agree he is a good Orthro. Better to stick to what your good at.. LOL

    Skippy, we’ll let’s just say, “He’s the old man in the sea”. The book, we’ll the sales might be just his past players.. Forced.. Enough said on the contents of this book…

    The team/parent meeting had to be one of the most retarded speeches I have heard in years. 45 minutes of Skippy crap! Anybody notice this bozo never dresses with the team? Wonder Why? A true classic example of an “I” guy.

    Albert, time to dig down below and see if anything is left. Time to fire your staff or be fired.

    Season is young??? Yeah right…

  • My two cents after reading this stuff…

    There is no way Leyva would ever get rid of Bast or Claprood, hes in with both of them. Skip was a succesful juco coach whose ideas are way beyond hs level of play. Hes older now and has a grandkid in the program. Hes been given too much rope by Leyva. Al considers him a mentor. Now as for Bast I get all the field renovation stuff he did and paid for and I get naming the fields for Larson and Carroll. I get all that. But why in the world would an accomplished surgeon want to coach hs baseball for? How does he even have time to properly be there and be counted on at practices, etc. And hes coaching third base? His involvement makes no sense to me. Leyva is stuck with him because of his political, finincial, and influential background at Damien. Not a good mix of stuff if you ask me. I was waiting for this to blow up on Leyva since day one. He followed the money and realized coaching at div 3 laverne with winterburn was a dead-end. His overrated as a high school coach because he relies too much on his assts and wont and has NEVER had the juevos to win the big games.

  • Firing time

    Two Cents

    This is exactly why the program isn’t working. Little Albert needs to make changes in coaching and with Skippy too! Never won the big won at Citrus, and he’s the hitting guy here at Citrus. The ideas are just WRONG at this point!

    Bast wants to take over! Ego Ego Ego! Control freak!

    Hope the 30 day passes today, because the exit will be BIG at Damien.

  • my two cents part two

    How can bast want to be in control? Hes not the head coach, hes a helper for gosh sakes. An asst or a helper comes in to help the kids, support the head coach without an ego. My sources have told me that Bast has always fancied himself as a baseball guy. But he really isnt at all. What does all this this say about Leyva? Not much if you ask me. I think Leyva is in over his head if you ask me. As for Skip, theres your ego for sure! At this point what a joke he is. From what I understand there is some talent in the program, albeit their toughness is definitely in question. Your team always emulates or reflects your coaching staff right? Not surprised theyre not tough.
