The latest at Montebello (baseball)

Oilers baseball coach Ralph Gutierrez checked in at about 9 p.m. last night with some information about a possible protest regarding Thursday’s 3-2 loss at South Hills.

The issue is whether the South Hills baseball team took illegal batting practice prior to its CIF-Southern Section Division 3 first-round playoff game.

As of last night, neither Gutierrez nor anyone from Montebello had filed a protest with the CIF-SS office.

In fact, Gutierrez mentioned a protest was only "under consideration" and that he and Montebello athletic director Tim Murphy would discus possible actions this morning.

While Gutierrez didn’t want to specify exactly what he observed, he made it clear he believed South Hills was in violation of the batting practice rule and that the Huskies’ activities did not fall into the soft toss, pepper or batting tee types of practice allowed.

A Montebello parent recorded the practice, which will be reviewed by Montebello this morning.

As of now, it’s just a waiting game.

    How does CIF decided what rules are upheld and which ones are not acceptable, I believe rules are rules if they are going to makes rules then there should not be any exceptions, see story below about Girl from South Pasadena High school, what’s the difference?

    SOUTH PASADENA – Commentators, bloggers and the national media continued Wednesday to debate the finish of a dual track meet that ended in controversy when a pole vaulter was disqualified for wearing a friendship bracelet.

    The April 29 meet between South Pasadena and Monrovia high schools hit the national radar screen Tuesday when Sports Illustrated published a detailed piece about pole vaulter Robin Laird’s disqualification.

    “Right now it seems as if its turned into a monster of its own,” said South Pasadena track coach P.J. Hernandez. “I never thought it would get this much publicity … Now this is national coverage its crazy”

    During the April 29 meet, Monrovia co-coach Mike Knowles pointed out Laird’s friendship bracelet violated national rules prohibiting jewelry. He did it after Laird cleared 7-feet-6-inches and seemingly won the Rio Hondo League title for Tigers.

    Knowles was instructed Wednesday not to discuss the incident.

    “The focus should go back to the girls,” said Monrovia High School principal Darvin Jackson. “…Allow them to enjoy the fruit of their labor. The adults at the table who are responsible hope to come to a resolution and put it behind us.”

    Athletic directors and administrators from both schools met Wednesday evening at South Pasadena High School. Both sides will release statements Thursday, Jackson said.

    At a Wednesday afternoon practice for the CIF-Southern Section Division 3 championship, television crews from local stations set up cameras and did interviews with Laird and others. Producers from sports talk radio stations also sought interviews with the pole vaulter and her coach.

    “It’s definitely been overwhelming,” Laird said. “What’s surprising is how worked up people are getting over this. This has happened all over the country and I’m sure other teams have suffered this kind of situation.”

    Laird said the offending bracelet, made of cloth, slipped

    her mind.
    “Before every meet, I’m conscious of taking off my earrings and necklaces,” she said. “But, I just never really thought about the wristband. I’ve been wearing it nonstop since November.”

    A four-year letterman, Laird plans on attending USC, but won’t run track. Her 7-6 jump was the best mark of the day. South Pasadena’s Rachel Ma and Monrovia’s Samantha Boltz and Gabby McBride all cleared 7-0.

    Hernandez said Laird’s Facebook page has been bombarded with supportive messages. South Pasadena has also received several phone calls of support.

    “A lot of strangers have been calling questioning the jewelry rule and what’s the spirit of the law and the intent of it,” Hernandez said
