Of the Tribune area teams, who has the best chance of winning a CIF-SS baseball title? Glendora, San Dimas, Bishop Amat


I was looking at the final baseball polls before Monday’s pairings and believe one of the Tribune area teams will win this thing. Which one? That’s what we’re discussing here. I love Glendora and South Hills’ chances in Division 2, even though it’s a ridiculously tough division with no gimmies in any round. But they both have pitching and are built for tournaments. If I had to pick one, I would go with Glendora having the best shot at the D-2 crown. Pitcher Kale Morton (9-0) is undefeated and I like undefeated. In Division 3 Bonita is No. 2 with Bishop Amat just off the board. Not ranked are teams like Diamond Bar and Walnut. For what it’s worth, because of who Amat’s played and played tough and what’s it’s done in the last couple weeks, I like their chances to go the furthest. Can they win it all? Possibly, but what I agarciahope to get out of Division 3 is a Bonita-Amat matchup along the way. Nothing like settling it on the field and I’ve been waiting for a Bonita-Bishop Amat playoff match-up forever. San Dimas in Division 4 is your best bet to win a CIF title. Why? Because of the division. San Dimas can play with all the area heavyweights, but put them in D-4 and you’ve got the best legitimate title possibility. Don’t count out Northview either, they’re a sleeper. Sierra Vista is ranked eighth in Division 5 but if history means anything, they never do much with it. They’re built for the Montview, that’s about it. La Verne Lutheran could be a sleeper in Division 6. They’ve come out of nowhere and some have tweeted and blogged that they’re really legit. If Lutheran is all that, they’re in a division to win it. Those are my choices, who you got?

    San Dimas has the best shot with its hitting and pitching. I am concerned with its defense. They make a few errors in the games I’ve covered, and it could hurt them in the later rounds.

    San Dimas . No oaks christian and Phil bickford . Team is loaded . Division 2 is the toughest it has ever been with teams from all areas being good. Anything can happen in D3 . No Transfer loaded team like Serra to dominate playoffs .bonita and even Bishop Amat can knock off any top team .

    Glendora, San Dimas, So. Hills, Chino Hills and Bishop Amat can all be there at the end. Sleepers Northview and Damien

  • Bonita Fan

    Bonita always seems to find a way to win. Well coached, Solid team, with clutch hitting, sound defense, good pitching and a solid bullpen. Should be an interesting Post Season. Undoubtedly the road to the CIF Championship goes through Bonita!

    Funny title considering BoHi is ranked #2 and the Lancers are an “other”. But hey, that’s the guy in the snapshot with the BA sweatshirt. ;)

    Amat and Bonita would be epic though . . . remember 2010(?) . . . Corey Lidle torment game at Sac? I forget who won. I mean, nobody came, game didn’t count for anything, and no one ever talked about it.

    How can Bishop Amat knock off anybody if they don’t have an offense
    Pitching can only get you so far
