The La Verne baseball team swept its way through the Bud Knight Memorial Invitational Tournament last weekend in Walla Walla, Washington, highlighted by a significant comeback win against the Whitman Blues, 12-10, after a rain delay Saturday at Borleske Stadium.
After coming out of a rough start to the weekend series, the La Verne baseball team jumped on an early lead in the second game of Saturday’s doubleheader at Ben Hines Field, eventually outscoring the Pomona-Pitzer Sagehens, 11-4.
The baseball team continued to dominate in Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play as they advanced their record to 9-1 after a mercy-ruled seven inning game against Caltech. The first place Leopards outplayed the Beavers, 16-0, April 1 at Ben Hines Field.
Sophomore shortstop Anthony Salcedo’s extra inning heroics helped the Leopards open their conference schedule with a bang March 4. His 11th inning single drove in sophomore pinch runner Garrett Halbeisen for a 5-4 walk-off win over the Redlands Bulldogs at Ben Hines Field.
The baseball team took two games from the visiting Centenary Gentlemen from Louisiana this week, including a close 9-7 win Sunday evening and a come-from-behind 12-8 victory Wednesday. The Leopards improved to 5-1-1 on the season as they await the opening of Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play.
Snug up against the foothills, in the middle of suburban neighborhoods, the cobblestone Rubel Castle, operated by the Glendora Historical Society, continues to carry on one man’s dream of never growing up by offering tours.
