    Baseball: Borowski resigns at Ocean View

    June 15th, 2015, 9:14 am by By STEVE FRYER

    Shane Borowski has resigned as baseball coach at Ocean View.

    Borowski coached Ocean View for 10 seasons. During his tenure, the Seahawks won a CIF chamionship, in 2010, and five league championships. His record at Ocean View is 162-112-1.

    Borowski explained his decision in an email that included, "I feel that it's time for a little break away from the HS baseball scene.  Nothing is wrong, the parents are great, the (administration) is very supportive, it's actually a great situation to be in for the next coach, I just need to take some time off and re-charge my baseball batteries."

    Coaches work long, long hours with much of the time spent on duties that are outside of what goes on from the first through the last inning of a game.

    Borowski also has been an assistant coach at Anaheim and Valencia.

    Baseball: Saturday games

    May 15th, 2015, 7:38 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    Four games are on the Orange County baseball schedule Saturday (May 16).

    Garden Grove at Santiago, and Rancho Alamitos at La Quinta.Both at 9 a.m.

    Those Garden Grove League games are make-up games from Thursday. Both games were underway Thursday when rains forced postponement. Both must start from the beginning (according to the league constitution), which is bad news for Grove, which was leading Santiago, 4-0, and La Quinta, which was leading Rancho, 3-2.

    There all kinds of playoff scenarios from those games, too many to recount here. It is complicated.

    Also Saturday: JSerra at Santa Margarita at 9 a.m.; Servite at Mater Dei, 9 a.m.

    Baseball, softball: Saturday games OK'd

    May 14th, 2015, 2:41 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    The CIF-Southern Section announced this afternoon that Saturday games can be played if needed to break ties in standings, if those tiebreaking games are needed to determine leagues' playoff representation.

    According to the Blue Book, which is the CIF-SS Constitution, Friday (May 15) is the final day that baseball and softball games can be played. Leagues generally do not schedule games for Friday in the final week of the regular season, so that any tiebreaker games can be added to the schedule for Friday.

    With rain today and more expected Friday, the CIF-SS office allows Saturday games to be played but, as mom would have said, "just this one time."

    Here is how the CIF-SS office lays it out ...

    1.    Schools must request from this office (CIF-SS) on Friday permission to play on Saturday and only if the weather has created an unplayable situation.
    2.    Schools requesting permission must have a valid reason for playing that game, for example to decide league entry placement.
    3.    Schools granted permission must start their game no later than 9:00 a.m. and league entries are due by Noon for those leagues with teams granted permission to play on Saturday.
    4.    If on Saturday their field is unplayable they must have a back-up facility already in place or that game will not be allowed to be played.

    Baseball: Some games with big implications

    May 14th, 2015, 12:32 pm by By STEVE FRYER

    There are a few playoff berths to be settled. A look at a couple of leagues ...

    Empire -- Cypress is the league champion and will go to the Division 1 playoffs as the league's No. 1 playoff representative. If today Pacifica (6-3 in league) beats Valencia (5-4), Pacifica is the league's No. 3 team -- the league's final playoff berth. If Valencia beats Pacifica, they both finish 6-4 in league. The first tiebreaker is how those teams did vs. the league champion. Valencia was 1-1 vs. Cypress, Pacifica was 0-2. So, a Valencia win today gives the Tigers the No. 3 spot. Tustin is going to the playoffs, but whether as a No. 2 or No. 3 is to be determined.

    Note: Valencia-Pacifica rained out; awaiting rescheduling information.

    Trinity League -- JSerra and Orange Lutheran are 1-2, respectively. Up for grabs between Mater Dei (7-7 in league) and Santa Margarita (6-8) is the No. 3 berth, the final playoff berth in the Trinity League. If Mater Dei beats Servite today, then Mater Dei is the league's No. 3 team. If Santa Margarita beats JSerra and Mater Dei loses, then Santa Margarita and Mater Dei finish at 7-8 each. As Santa Margarita won two of three against Mater Dei, Santa Margarita would go as the No. 3 team.

    Note: Servite at Mater Dei has been rescheduled for Friday, 6 p.m., at Mater Dei. JSerra at Santa Margarita was moved to a Saturday, 9 a.m. start.
