  • Valley Athletics

    Amat plays the all star team with all the transfers available . Serra is to talented and deep for amat . Expect serra to go undefeated . Bonita vs Serra in final .amat second place .

    • GP AKA Green Machine

      Amat needs a new coach!

      • New coach? Who among active coaches in the Valley have more rings than Nieto?

        • ehalofan

          New Coach? I agree Fred. I think some people are really too tough on the guy. All he has done is make Amat one of the best baseball schools in Southern California.

          • onewhoknows

            give me a break!!

        • onewhoknows

          Put him in D-1, where he belongs, then count the rings!!

        • jBeeBs

          Who among active coaches in the Valley gets more D1 talent year after year & competes in D3 or lower?? You dont even have to be a “good” coach to win D4/D5 championships with that type of talent..

  • Valley Athletics

    Northview plays bonita also . Big game

  • TheCloser

    The bigger concern for Amat that I see is that the entire program is struggling from the Freshman teams up to the Varsity. They had the preseason #5 ranking in the LA Times partly because of the amount of returning players this year. Hopefully, they can turn it around.

    • Valley Athletics

      3 pitchers from last years freshmen team are on varsity . 2 of them should be moved back to jv to get them some playing time .freshmen have 3 players on varsity . 2 of the freshman start and a freshmen pitcher started against canyon . That would be the core of the freshmen team, an ace pitcher , shortstop and utility player .

      • TheCloser

        Hopefully that’s a good core that can help build in the next two years. From my MaxPreps stalking it looks like 6 out of their 8 losses have been by 2 runs or less. They need more sticks but I guess everybody does. From watching high school baseball this season, life is so much easier for pitchers with the BBCOR bats.

      • Oggabey

        The freshman just won their tournament beating a lot of very strong teams. The amat freshman team dominated in every game they played. The other freshman team won a tournament earlier in the year. I don’t know what you are seeing, but amat baseball lower levels are looking very good.

        • Valley Athletics

          I think you meant to answer the closer. He stated about lower level teams.

  • Valley Athletics

    It’s no surprise Serra beats Amat . With 6 good transfers added to a good team and now eligible . Expect them to go undefeated rest of year . I saw them against diamond bar and held diamond bar to 3 hits . Didn’t get to see all American future first round pick Dominic smith play . They probably rested him to get some of the new players time . Serra was ranked in the nation in preseason polls due to there Allstar roster . Now with the bates brothers and Marcus Wilson available they will be unstoppable .

    • Correction! HIts were DB 5 and Serra 4

      • Valley Athletics

        Didn’t see the whole game . At the end I asked someone an they said there was only 3 hits .

        • Serra did not use any of their pitchers against DB, they used 2 position players to pitch. Dom Smith had a bruised shoulder and did not play in first 3 games of Anaheim Lions Tourney. He is healthy now.
