City Section officials Tuesday canceled their 4-A Division high school baseball playoffs, scheduled to start today, because of a coaches' boycott stemming from the teachers' strike against the Los Angeles Unified School District. The 3-A Division playoffs will start today as scheduled, Commissioner Hal Harkness said. Harkness announced the cancellation after a poll of the 16 schools whose teams had qualified revealed that only six were willing to field teams without the coach of record.

As a result of the settlement of the Los Angeles schoolteachers' strike, the City Section has reinstated the 4-A Division baseball playoffs. City Section Commissioner Hal Harkness and a group representing the 4-A coaches hammered out a plan Thursday morning that calls for first-round games today and the next three rounds to be played Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The final is scheduled for Thursday at Dodger Stadium. Teams that survive the first round of the 16-team tournament will be allowed to practice either Saturday or Monday, a school holiday.

In an 11th-hour attempt to salvage the City Section 4-A Division baseball playoffs, a group representing boycotting coaches will propose a revamped tournament schedule to City officials at a meeting at 10 a.m. today. City Section Commissioner Hal Harkness, who canceled the playoffs Tuesday, has agreed to the meeting, which is contingent upon a settlement of the strike against the Los Angeles Unified School District that would enable teachers to return to work by Friday. San Fernando Coach Steve Marden and Chatsworth Coach Bob Lofrano will represent the 16 coaches whose teams have qualified for the 4-A playoffs.

He added that the 3-A Division playoffs will begin Wednesday as scheduled. The 4-A playoffs involving 16 teams also are scheduled to begin Wednesday, but that tournament has been jeopardized by a coaches' boycott as part of the teachers' strike against the Los Angeles Unified School District. Harkness met with district officials Monday after polling administrators at schools whose baseball teams have qualified for the playoffs.

Because of a coaches' boycott stemming from the teachers' strike, the City Section canceled the 4-A Division baseball playoffs Tuesday, a move that featured something for almost all involved to dislike. City Section Commissioner Hal Harkness announced the cancellation after a poll of the 16 schools whose teams had qualified for the 4-A playoffs revealed that only six were willing to field teams without the coach of record. Harkness declined to name the schools. District rules state that the school official coaching a team must be a credentialed employee.

A group of Chatsworth High baseball players sought the support of the school administration Wednesday in an attempt to participate in the 4-A Division playoffs without Coach Bob Lofrano, a leader in a coaches' boycott during the strike against Los Angeles Unified School District. After a team meeting called by the players, seniors Rich Aude, Jason Evans, Doug Lambeck, Vince Simili and Derek Wallace made the request during a meeting with Assistant Principal Roy Kamamoto.

Bob Lofrano, one of the Valley-area's top baseball coaches, interviewed Tuesday for a job as a coach and physical education teacher at Pierce College, according to Pierce Athletic Director Marian McWilliams. Both parties seem eager to join forces, although Lofrano and Pierce officials have not agreed on a job title. Lofrano, the Chatsworth High coach, said he assumed that he was interviewing for the head coaching job when he met with an academic committee Tuesday.

Bob Lofrano took a pay cut and his job title was declassified Thursday, but the former Chatsworth High baseball coach said that the move marked a step forward after he was introduced officially as a new assistant baseball coach at Pierce College. Pierce has hired Lofrano as a physical education teacher, the first such hire at the school since Jim Fenwick joined the staff in 1975.

Coaches of 15 Los Angeles City Section high schools, whose baseball teams have qualified for the 4-A Division playoffs, voted Monday to boycott the high school season until the teachers' strike against the Los Angeles Unified School District ends. The 4-A coaches' move comes despite a recommendation last week by the Los Angeles City Coaches Assn. that would allow coaches to honor picket lines and direct their teams after school. Coaches of the 3-A baseball teams and other spring sports such as golf, softball, track, swimming and volleyball have indicated they will make their decisions individually.
