There was zero clouds and the sun warmed up a once chilly morning for the opening day of high school baseball on Saturday.

In Orange County, Erik Tolman of El Toro showed he’s more than ready to take over as the star player for the defending Division 1 champions. He hit two home runs and struck out eight in five shutout innings in a 2-0 victory over El Dorado and standout pitcher Kyle Luckham. Chase Luttrell struck out three to pick up the save.

In Woodland Hills, it was a battle of young guns.
