BSD Bancorp, which has been unable to stem the flow of red ink at its Bank of San Diego subsidiary, has elected a new board of directors following a "disagreement" over the bank's future, company officials said Friday. BSD Bancorp's board members pledged to "move quickly to make whatever additional changes are necessary to get this bank on a solid and profitable footing once again." Bank of San Diego, the largest of BSD Bancorp's six subsidiaries, reported a $985,000 net loss during 1986.

Along about the seventh inning, press box denizens began hauling out their baseball record books. The question: Who was the last opposing pitcher to come into the Dodgers' home park stadium and pitch a no-hitter? The answer: Johnny Vander Meer of the Reds, at Brooklyn, in 1938--for his second consecutive no-hitter. Before 38,957 at Dodger Stadium, eight years ago tonight, Montreal's Mark Gardner was mowing down the Dodgers . Unfortunately for him, Dodger pitchers were doing the same to his team.

First National Corp. on Friday renewed its bid to acquire the Bank of San Diego's assets from BSD Bancorp with an offer to double its previous unspecified cash offer for the troubled bank. First National described its previous offer only as a "premium" over the bank's book value of $6.7 million. The renewed acquisition offer expires on Aug. 12, one day after the Aug. 11 annual meeting of BSD Bancorp, Bank of San Diego's parent company.

BSD Bancorp officers conducted a relatively calm annual meeting Tuesday afternoon, given the fireworks that might have developed in the wake of First National Corp.'s recent unsuccessful attempts to buy the Bank of San Diego's assets from BSD Bancorp. BSD directors on Friday rejected First National's offer to acquire the Bank of San Diego for $600,000 above its book value of $6.7 million. BSD previously had rejected First National's bid to acquire the bank for $300,000 over its book value.

BSD Bancorp is seeking regulatory approval to convert its wholly owned Bank of La Costa subsidiary into a branch of the Bank of San Diego, an action that could lead to a "handful" of Bank of La Costa's 16 employees being laid off. BSD Bancorp, which also owns American Valley Bank and Coast Bank, earlier this year sold Borrego Springs Bank to an investor group led by the bank's chairman, Ray D. Innocenti, for $1.2 million.

The Bank of San Diego, which last week turned operating control over to Chairman James E. Brown, on Wednesday said that President and Chief Executive E. Lynn Caswell had resigned because of disagreements over the bank's future. Caswell, who became chief executive in 1984, lost his spot on Bank of San Diego's board of directors two weeks ago when BSD Bancorp, the bank's sole shareholder, elected a new slate of directors.
