Baseball: Galileo grad Nelson commits to Cal after a stop at College of San Mateo 

By Jeremy Balan

Dylan Nelson was such a force on Galileo Academy’s baseball team in his junior and senior years that when he was redshirted at the College of San Mateo in his first season out of high school, the lack of competition was killing him.

That year off the field drove Nelson, one of the most decorated athletes in Academic Athletic Association history, into a scholarship to play at Cal.

Baseball: SanFranPreps.com All-City Team 

By Jeremy Balan

Our All-City teams are not always scientific.

Sometimes, you have to go with your gut.

In the past, our Player of the Year race in baseball has been between those who have had standout seasons at the plate and on the mound — the dual-threat players that impact every game.

This time around, it’s a pitcher, but the exception is truly exceptional.

All you have to do is ask one question: Who was the best baseball player in the City this season? The answer is Collin Monsour.

Baseball: St. Ignatius comes from behind against Aptos to win first CCS title 

By Bonta Hill

SAN JOSE – With the St. Ignatius baseball team facing a 3-1 deficit in the bottom of the fifth inning of the Central Coast Section Division II championship game, Aptos was threatening to put the game away with the bases loaded with one out.

St. Ignatius head coach Matt Stetcher called on his ace, Cal-bound pitcher Collin Monsour, to get the Wildcats out of the jam.

Monsour not only got St. Ignatius out of the inning with back-to-back strikeouts, but also swung the momentum of the game that ended with a 5-3 SI victory on Saturday at Municipal Stadium.

Baseball: Stuart Hall’s big fifth inning seals BCL West title game against Lick 

By Jeremy Balan

SAN BRUNO – If there was any doubt which baseball team was the best in the Bay Counties League West this season, Stuart Hall High School’s squad removed it on Friday at Skyline College.

Lick-Wilmerding hung with the top-seeded Knights and only trailed 3-1 through four innings, but Stuart Hall slammed the door shut on their second straight league title and an undefeated league season with a six-run fifth inning en route to a 9-1 victory.

Late-inning theatrics have been a common theme for the International High School baseball team this season, so it was fitting that the Bay Counties League Central championship game came down to a bases-loaded situation in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Top-seeded Pescadero got the tying run on to load the bases in the seventh, but unlike games past, International was able to hold on for the 7-4 win and successfully defend its BCL Central title on Friday at Big Rec.

Baseball: St. Ignatius holds off Westmont to advance in CCS playoffs 

By Jeremy Balan

DALY CITY – After coasting to a 8-0 lead through five innings of their first-round Central Coast Section Division II playoff game against Westmont High School of Campbell, the St. Ignatius baseball team suddenly ran into some similar demons.

A week after an error-filled loss to Serra, another error opened the door for a five-run Westmont sixth inning, but this time, the fifth-seeded Wildcats had a cushion just large enough to hold on for a 8-6 victory on Thursday at Marchbank Park.
