Nobody asked, but because we’re in the neighborhood, our picks for the best Baseline League in several years: 1. Rancho Cucamonga; 2. Upland; 3. Alta Loma; 4. Los Olos; 5. Claremont; 6. Etiwanda. This is the most-balanced we’ve seen the league; it’s doubtful any team will escape without a loss. This item will help those Claremont T-shirt sales for the third straight year. … Where’s the instant replay? One seldom sees a football call reversed on the high school level. Officials get one chance to make the call, there’s no video help. However, Thursday’s nonleague game at Fontana High School between La Sierra and Kaiser saw not one, but two, calls switched. One was a two-point conversion by La Sierra and the other a fumble recovery by Kaiser. Whether the crew got the calls right is another matter, but they were talking to one another. … Mt. Baldy League predictions: 1. Chaffey; 2. Don Lugo; 3. Diamond Ranch; 4. Montclair; 5. Ontario; 6. Colony. The title to be decided Nov. 4 at Chaffey. … Department of Corrections: Longtime and loyal reader Jim Reno is better known for his days as a football coach, and Mark Olay confidant, but also knows something about track and field. “I think you meant to say that Lawrence Dixon (Eisenhower, 1985) ran a 10.3 100 meters rather than 100 yards,” Reno called in to say. “I think even you could have run a 10.3 100 yards.” Well, if you must know. … Special message for Ruben Garcia, the former NASCAR Winston West driver out of San Dimas: Got your message, but lost your number. Give me another call, and this time I’ll write it down twice. … Sierra League crystal ball: 1. Chino; 2. Damien; 3. Chino Hills; 4. Glendora; 5. Ayala; 6. Diamond Bar. Cowboys can raise the league flag in Monger Stadium to open the playoffs. … Officials, part 2: The scoreboard at Upland High School went out Friday night when somebody kicked the plug. Upon power being restored, everything was as it was when it went out. Or at least it looked that way. However, the officials didn’t quite believe it and knocked 1:04 off the game clock. … Department of Track Corrections, part 2: Philip McSherry correctly pointed out that it was Sebastian Coe that ran against Steve Scott in Oslo, Norway, when Scott set the U.S. record in the mile. … Yes, the D.J. Hackett who caught five passes Sunday for the Seahawks is the same D.J. Hackett who prepped at San Dimas and was the basketball player of the year in 1999. He signed with Cal State Northridge to play football, but Northridge then dropped the sport. Hackett made his way to Colorado and started his first game for Seattle against the Rams on Sunday. Dad Eddie is the Ganesha athletic director and mother Gloria is the respected girls basketball coach. … Sunkist League forecast: 1. Kaiser; 2. Bloomington; 3. Notre Vista; 4. Rubidoux; 5. Ramona; 6. Jurupa Valley. As usual, it comes down to the last game on Nov. 10 for the title. … Happy belated birthday to Jim Bryant, former Daily Report sports editor and current Chaffey College stat man. Bryant, who headed the Ontario paper for 25 years, turned 79 on Monday. … Miramonte League outlook: 1. Los Altos; 2. Bonita; 3. Charter Oak; 4. Hacienda Heights Wilson; 5. Garey. The Bearcats have the toughest start, opening with Charter Oak and Los Altos. … The same Stephen Ressa who Las Vegas police say intentionally struck 14 people on the Las Vegas Strip last month is the same Stephen Ressa who pitched for Scott Russell at Rialto High School and Charlie Deagle at Chaffey College. As a matter of fact, southpaw Ressa was an all-Foothill Conference pitcher for the Panthers. … Valle Vista League crystal ball: 1. Covina; 2. Baldwin Park; 3. Pomona; 4. San Dimas; 5, Northview; 6.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week This much is pretty clear: open-wheel fans, however devout they are, did not support the races at Fontana in the same manner NASCAR fans have. Or motorcycle fans, for that matter. The future would have been brighter if the sanctioning bodies (CART and IRL) had not been insistent about separating the season-ticket plan. We expect another great race Sunday at Fontana, with Dan Wheldon capping a great season with a win. … If you ever followed the horses, more specifically bet on the ponies, you probably won money when Laffit Pincay was in the saddle. After all, he only won 9,530 races in a career that spanned nearly four decades. Oak Tree will honor Pincay on Saturday, and will give each paid fan a DVD documentary entitled, “Laffit, All About Winning.” It was produced and directed by Jim Wilson, who has an Academy Award to his credit, and narrated by Kevin Costner. … Random thoughts for a Tuesday morning, wondering whatever happened to Ernie Rogers, the big tight end for Fontana High School in 1985. … An era comes to a close this weekend at California Speedway with the Indy Toyota 400. It is the final open-wheel race scheduled for the track that has produced the fastest one-lap run and only race to average more than 200 mph. Southern California fans who enjoyed the discipline are back where they were nine years ago with only a follow-the-leader street race within driving distance. While the Indy Racing League has indicated it would like to return to Fontana, we find that very doubtful. Why the IRL opted not to return to Fontana remains a mystery. What the sanctioning body will find out this weekend is that the speedway wanted to keep the event, and has put its promotional money to work for the race.
