Here are the final So Cal Sidelines baseball rankings for the IE, LA, OC, San Diego and all of So Cal.


SO CAL TOP 20


1. (4) Eastlake of Chula Vista (Metro Mesa) 32-4

The Titans went from last rights to CIF-SDS Open Division champions. After losing in the opening round of the playoffs, Eastlake had to win out to take the title and they did just that by taking two from Madison of San Diego followed by a victory over Helix of La Mesa to win the championship. The tough feat pushed them up to the top as they end the season as So Cal’s top team.

2. (1) El Toro of Lake Forest (South Coast) 27-7-1

The Chargers took care of Mater Dei of Santa Ana to head to Dodger Stadium where they shut out Corona to win the CIF-SS Division 1 title. Because of what Eastlake accomplished, El Toro does fall down from the top spot, but it doesn’t matter to thethe Chargers,who have a CIF championship plaque in their hands.

3. (7) Etiwanda (Baseline) 27-3

The Eagles upset St. John Bosco of Bellflower in the semifinals before beating Palm Desert to claim the CIF-SS Division 2 title. It’s the first championship in the program’s history.

4. (11) San Marcos of San Marcos (Avocado East) 30-4

The Knights went through the CIF-SDS Division II playoff bracket with ease, beating Ramona of Ramona in the semifinals and Santana of Santee in the finals to make a big move in the final So Cal Top 20. Many are probably wondering how far the Knights would have gone in the Open Division, but San Marcos will be fine with its well-earned Division II title.

5. (10) Corona (Big VIII) 23-10

The Panthers pulled off a comeback to beat El Dorado of Placentia in the semifinals, but the Panthers ran out of gas against El Toro in the CIF-SS Division 1 finals. A fantastic season in a tough league with a trip to the finals puts Corona in the Top 5 in So Cal.

6. (15) Palm Desert (Desert Valley) 23-8

The Aztecs got past Capistrano Valley of Mission Viejo in the semifinals, but they fell short against Etiwanda in the CIF-SS Division 2 finals. Despite the loss, it was a fantastic season for Palm Desert.

7. (14) Helix of La Mesa (Grossmont-Hills) 22-12

The Scots dropped a game against Cathedral Catholic of San Diego, but they avenged the loss by beating the Dons in elimination game before running into Eastlake in the CIF-SDS Open Division finals.

8. (2) St. John Bosco of Bellflower (Trinity) 27-8

The Braves are wishing they had another Johnny Kuhn for the semifinals. Bosco saved Kuhn for the finals and ended up losing to Etiwanda in the CIF-SS Division 2 semifinals. Bosco ends the season as LA’s top team after one of the best seasons in school history.

9. (NR) Birmingham of Lake Balboa (West Valley) 26-9-1

The Patriots entered the CIF-LACS Division I finals as underdogs and they proved everyone wrong with an upset over Chatsworth thanks to their strong pitching.

10. (3) Chatsworth (West Valley) 29-6

11. (5) El Dorado of Placentia (Crestview) 21-9-1

After shocking everyone in the quarterfinals with a victory over Huntington Beach, the Golden Hawks playoff magic came to an end with a loss to Corona in the semifinals of the CIF-SS Division 1 playoffs.

12. (8) Huntington Beach (Sunset) 28-5

The Oilers finished the season a week earlier than everyone predicted with a loss to El Dorado of Placentia in the CIF-SS Division 1 quarterfinals. Huntington Beach enjoyed a fantastic season and will cheer on Hagen Danner and Nick Pratto, who are expected to go high in the 2017 MLB Draft.

13. (9) Cathedral Catholic of San Diego (Western) 25-9

The Dons came out of the loser’s bracket to beat Helix of La Mesa in the CIF-SDS Open Division semifinals, but the Scotties came back to win the double elimination game.

14. (6) Madison of San Diego (Western) 20-12

After knocking off some of San Diego’s best in the first week of the CIF-SDS Open Division playoffs, the Warhawks ran out of gas with back-to-back losses to Eastlake of Chula Vista in the semifinals. Despite the loss, it was an impressive run in the postseason for Madison.

15. (12) Mater Dei of Santa Ana (Trinity) 21-12

The Broncos season ended a week earlier than expected against Eastlake of Chula Vistain the quarterfinals of the CIF-SDS Open Division playoffs. Rancho Bernardo will be watching the television to see where teammate Calvin Mitchell will go in the MLB Draft.

17. (16) Glendora (Palomares) 25-6

The Tartans season came to an end in a close on against to St. John Bosco of Bellflower in the quarterfinals of the CIF-SS Division 2 playoffs, but Glendora does get the right to say that it is the Palomares League champion.

18. (18) Moorpark (Coastal Canyon) 26-4

Moorpark lost to Edison of Huntington Beach in the second round of the CIF-SS Division 2 playoff despite many predicting the Musketeers to reach the finals after winning the Coastal Canyon League title.

19. (19) Notre Dame of Sherman Oaks (Mission) 22-9

Notre Dame got knocked out of the CIF-SS Division 2 playoffs in the second round by Redlands East Valley. The Knights will most likely watch Hunter Greene go No. 1 in the 2017 MLB Draft.

3. (3) Palm Desert (Desert Valley) 21-8

The Aztecs got past Capistrano Valley of Mission Viejo in the semifinals, but they fell short against Etiwanda in the CIF-SS Division 2 finals. Despite the loss, it was a fantastic season for Palm Desert.

6. (5) Vista Murrieta (Southwestern) 22-9

17. (17) Paloma Valley of Menifee (Sunbelt) 23-4

The Wildcats had an identical record from 2008 and could have had the best record in school history, but they lost in the first round of the CIF-SS Division 2 playoffs despite being the Sunbelt League champs.

The Mustangs might be the best team in So Cal to not make the playoffs. Roosevelt missed out and got robbed, but that should be a chip on the shoulder for the returning players.
