Rich Lederer let me write this paean to my high school alma mater John F. Kennedy High School of Granada Hills over at Baseball Analysts.

City ball....Ewwwwwww. I'm going to guess that unlike most city ball teams, you didn't have to share one bat and nine gloves. I kid the city ball.

The good City Section teams (Kennedy, Chatsworth, El Camino Real) are on the same par as the top Southern Section teams. The section isn't as deep because there are fewer schools and they are in poorer areas and there aren't private schools.

The 1996 Kennedy team lost just one game and that was to the high school in Florida that A-Rod went to. And they lost the game in Florida.

Kennedy went 5-5 this year against teams outside the City Section.

The upper echelon city ball teams are outstanding. Chatsworth is an absolute monster, and Kennedy is great. We South Bay and city ball teams are both chasing the OC anyway. A little solidarity with my city ball brothers.

I didn't play youth baseball growing up as it was way too competitive.

The Harbor area schools have fallen off in baseball. The best team outside of the Valley now is Roosevelt.
