Baseball: Beware of the little brothers at Alemany

Considering that Alemany returns 13 seniors and is expected to be one of the top five teams in Southern California this spring, it will be difficult for a freshman to break in on the varsity baseball team.

But word is the Warriors have two good ones, and both are younger brothers of varsity standouts.

Freshman catcher Noah Cardenas is the brother of Alemany All-CIF outfielder Ruben Cardenas.

Freshman infielder Dirk Ryan is the brother of former Chatsworth standouts Jake and Tyler Ryan.
