The teams in the Valley Mission League have heard it many times in City Section baseball: Your league is weak.

The Southern Section office has denied a protest by Oaks Christian of its baseball game against Valencia, ruling that “it has been determined that at no time prior to the contest was a request made by Oaks Christian to the plate umpire to play that game under protest.”

Valencia won the game 4-3.

Valencia allegedly violated bylaw 1524.2 in engaging in illegal soft toss prior to the game.
