BURBANK — As a three-year starter for the Crespi High baseball team, resident Austin Walker has enjoyed his share of personal accomplishments. Whether it’s earning all-league honors, delivering a big hit or coming up with a diving play in the infield to save a run, the junior is no stranger to success. However, all of his personal acclaim takes a back seat to what’s really important to the young man. “It’s really all about the team,” said Walker, a starting third baseman for the Celts.

BURBANK — Austin Walker admitted his knees were shaking as he waited in the on-deck circle before he stepped up to the plate at Angel Stadium. “I was very nervous during that first at-bat,” the Burbank resident said. “I swung at a bad pitcher and I hit into a fielder’s choice.” That would be one of the few bad pitches Walker would swing at Saturday, as his Crespi baseball team took on Huntington Beach in the CIF Southern Section Division II championship game.

BURROUGHS HIGH -- In years past, the Burbank All-City Middle Schools' Track Meet has been traditionally held at one of the area's three schools. However, without real running tracks, long jump runways and other facilities, the middle schools provided only adequate venues for the meet. However, this year's installment of the event was held at Burroughs High's Memorial Field on Saturday, and the boys and girls got the opportunity to compete at a higher level.

Charles Rich Time will tell if the unpredictable weather in Utah will continue to put a damper on the Pacific Southwest Tournament. However, the inclement weather couldn't have come at a better time for the La Crescenta 13-year-old Babe Ruth baseball team on Friday. La Crescenta -- which includes four Burbank residents -- built a 6-5 lead against Hawaii after two innings in a second-round game at Babe Ruth Field in Panguitch, Utah, but tournament officials suspended the game and the remaining contests Friday because of lightning in the area.

Jeff Tully Opposing catchers are kept very busy when they play against the La Crescenta 13-year-old Babe Ruth team. The squad, which includes three Burbank residents, will run often, and its wealth of speedsters helps ignite its potent offense. "We will run whenever we can," said La Crescenta Coach Dino Magallon, whose team swiped 13 bases against La Canada earlier this season. "We pride ourselves on our speed, and we have a group of guys who can really run. "But we try to teach the kids whether it's stealing bases or taking an extra base, don't just be a runner, be a smart runner.

JEFF TULLY A group of athletes made a statement last weekend at Memorial Field. Just by their participation in the Burbank Middle Schools' Track Meet, the young boys and girls are extolling all that is good with today's youngsters. Instead of sitting at home spending hours absorbed in mind-numbing PlayStation games, or hanging out at the mall, those athletes from John Muir, Jordan and Luther were hard at work, engulfed in competition, at the event.

GLENDALE — The California Collegiate League All-Star break, which begins Monday, comes none too soon for the Glendale Angelenos, who are beginning to feel the grind after a month of near-daily games. Coming off Tuesday's doubleheader in San Luis Obispo, from which the team didn't return home until the wee hours of Wednesday morning, the Angelenos stayed competitive early in a nonleague game against the Southern California A's on Wednesday night at Stengel Field, but went flat over the course of a 6-3 loss.
