Gino Tagliaferri, the state's home run leader who led Kennedy High to the City Section title, has been selected the City 4-A Player of the Year by a panel of area sportswriters. The senior shortstop is one of 12 Valley players selected to the 20-member team that is sponsored by the Amateur Athletic Foundation of Los Angeles. He is joined by Kennedy teammates Mitch Cizek, a pitcher, infielder Mike Murray and outfielder Garret Anderson. Chatsworth placed three players on the team: pitcher Derek Wallace and infielders Rich Aude and Jason Evans.

1988 Middleweight Michael Nunn and the Monroe High baseball team rose from obscurity to become champions and CS Northridge also took a huge step. As North Hollywood boxer Michael Nunn fought his way through the middleweight ranks toward a title shot, criticism of his light-hitting style accompanied his ascent. Nunn kept his record perfect but his failure to deliver a knockout punch frustrated his supporters and provided ammunition for his critics. But the 6-foot-2 southpaw silenced many of his critics with a big year in 1988.

In regard to your articles about San Fernando beating Chatsworth and Monroe stunning the defending champion Canoga Park team, let me tell you that I, along with hundreds of people who have followed the youth baseball careers of the Tiger and Viking players, knew that it was possible, in fact, probable that these two teams could win. They are quality teams with players who have been tested at every level of Little League play, including the 1985 World...

Sean Henson, hedonist? A couch potato? Spud or stud? Can this be the guy who struck out nine in a 4-2 win over San Fernando High in the first round of the City Section 4-A Division playoffs last Friday? Consider the Monroe High junior left-hander's less-than-stressful workout regimen during the recent teachers' strike, which forced cancellation of play and official team practices for two weeks. It seems that Henson spent most of his time hanging out, rather than ironing out his hanging curves.

A matter of hours after many of his placard-toting compatriots finally finished stalking the sidewalks, Chatsworth High Coach Bob Lofrano and nine other Valley-area City Section 4-A Division baseball coaches hit the streets in search of their players. "I can't find some of the guys," Lofrano said Thursday afternoon. "I've been calling, and some of them aren't around." It was no small wonder, since most players figured that postseason play had been legislated out of existence earlier this week when the United Teachers-Los Angeles' strike prompted the cancellation of the 4-A Division baseball playoffs.

Cal State Northridge, which started the season 0-4, re-entered Collegiate Baseball magazine's Top 20 this week in the No. 19 position. The Matadors' nine-game unbeaten streak was snapped Wednesday by host UC Santa Barbara. Northridge (9-5-1) announced it will make up a rained-out game against UC Irvine at 7 p.m. on April 9 at Anteater Field. The Cal Lutheran baseball team moved up to third in the American Baseball Coaches' Assn. NCAA Division III Top 20 poll this week.

Monroe High left-hander Tim Costic struck out 10 and allowed only four hits--two in the seventh inning--in leading the Vikings to a 2-1 Mid-Valley League victory over previously unbeaten Van Nuys on Tuesday at Monroe. However, Costic (3-0) wasn't the only pitcher to have a good day. Van Nuys starter John House (2-1) pitched a no-hitter through 3 1/3 innings and finished with eight strikeouts and a two-hitter. "We didn't swing the bat well," Monroe Coach Kevin Campbell said.

El Camino Real and Taft highs tied for fourth place in the West Valley League with 5-10 records, but when it came time to break that tie, the teams couldn't have been further apart. El Camino Real pounded out 16 hits Friday and qualified for next week's City Section 4-A Division playoffs with a 13-1 victory over Taft in a fourth-place tiebreaker at Taft. In another tiebreaker, Monroe hammered Birmingham, 13-4, and will go the playoffs as the Mid-Valley League's fourth-place representative.

Monroe High took advantage of four Grant errors in the first three innings to score three unearned runs and build a lead that proved insurmountable in a 6-1 win Thursday in a Valley Pac-8 Conference game at Monroe. The miscues started early for Grant (10-4, 7-3 in the East Valley League), which Wednesday had defeated Monroe, 5-2, with the help of Viking errors. Monroe's first batter, Ernie Echeveste, hit a routine grounder that rolled between first baseman Raul Montero's legs.
