Beckman High’s baseball team, coached by Kevin Lavalle, was off to a 6-2 start and won its only Pacific Coast League game, defeating Portola 5-3 before the season was suspended.

The squad also captured the championship at the Chino Tournament.

The Patriots were trying to capture their third consecutive Pacific Coast League crown.

If you took pictures before the season, we would like to share team pictures of spring teams with our readers. These can be pictures of seniors or the entire team and we will run these throughout the coming months to salute the hard working athletes of Orange County who have had their seasons cut short. Please email pictures, names of the players and some highlights to timburt@ocsportszone.com so we can share with our readers. Horizontal pictures similar in size to the one above work best. Please do not take pictures now for us.
