ARCADIA - Facing elimination in the Section 2 Tournament on Monday, the Burbank 10-11 Baseball All-Star team had to go with ace pitcher Blaine Traxel. Fortunately for Burbank, it was able to pick up a victory to stay alive on a solid outing by Traxel. Unfortunately, the locals had to go into Tuesday's championship contest with their star hurler unable to take the mound because of Little League limitations placed on pitchers. As a result, the Sherman Oaks hitters feasted on a trio of Burbank pitchers, and when the dust cleared, Burbank had absorbed a 15-0 loss at Longden Field that ended its season.

In Monday's elimination game with Quartz Hill, Burbank looked to an offense that has been the team's strength throughout, and did not disappoint yet again, as two home runs and 12 total hits lifted the District 16 Major Baseball champions to a 14-6 victory at Montrose Park that eliminated Quartz Hill from the tournament.

Mr. Will Ray, in his forum letter (Jan. 12-13) suggests that when giving directions to a friend traveling east on the Ventura (134) Freeway on how to get to Hollywood Way, tell them to take the Pass Avenue exit and quickly make a right onto Oak Street. I have lived for 20 years just a hop, skip, and a farthing from Pass Avenue, and I can assure one and all that if you are heading east and quickly make a right turn, you will find yourself at Alameda Avenue, post haste.
