Coach Phil Torres refuses to take too much credit for the success of his team at Crescenta Valley, which plays Saturday in the Southern Section Division I baseball championship game.
After the Falcons (24-3-1) defeated Palmdale, 3-2, in a quarterfinal game, Torres said assistants Darrin Beer, Dave Mendoza and Paul Biggs deserve more credit.
"All I do during the game is manage, [complain] and moan," Torres said. "Those guys do all the coaching."
Baaaaaad Team: Charter Oak, which lost to Burroughs, 10-0, in a Southern Section Division II playoff game, had two candidates that would qualify collectively for the all-name team.
Jason Woolley was the starting pitcher. His catcher was Bryan Lamb.
