Winter/Spring Merges For Outdoor Action Publisher’s Notes

(crazy talk) • What’s an Ice Storm? It’s January. It’s suppose to be raining, right. It’s not. We’re suppose to be able to see snow on the San Gabriel Mountains. We don’t. The Peninsula is having another nonwinter winter. It’s either dry and cold or dry and hot. Either way - it’s dry. This means there is no excuse for not being outdoors, practicing your favorite sport. It’s basketball season and the outdoor courts around the Peninsula are full of teams scrimmaging and practicing for PVBA games on the weekend. The soccer season never ends on the Hill, so AYSO Select/EXTRA and various club teams continue tournament play. You can find them playing and practicing at Hesse Park, Malaga Cove and elsewhere on the Peninsula. And with baseball and softball seasons coming up, the batting cages and ball diamonds are getting busier. There is no excuse for anyone this weekend, or next weekend, or any weekend forever and ever - to not take advantage of this wonderful dry weather and go outdoors and do something. Anything. Every weekend the Palos Verdes Peninsula is full of active people of all ages riding bikes, jogging, riding horses, surfing, walking, playing golf, swimming, playing tennis, painting and reading, eating and sleeping - all outdoors.

Be aware of your surroundings and take advantage of the opportunities that the Peninsula and this community has to offer So , again, what IS an Ice Storm?

The annual “skill assessments” were held last weekend at all the Peninsula Little Leagues, and that got us excited about spring sports. We cannot wait for the legendary Little League and Softball snack-shacks to open and start providing great food and service to Peninsula folks. We were able to get to all four leagues for tryouts, and we can report that the fields look great. The leagues continue to upgrade their facilities, which make each season better than the last. Our sources tell us that “the numbers are up” at all four Little Leagues and the Pony League for the spring baseball season. As for the tryouts, I mean “skill assessments,” which can be stressful, bordering on nightmarish, for some, it’s helpful to remember that no matter what your age or skill level, everyone will be on a team. Don’t be nervous about how well you think you performed fielding ground balls or hitting off a pitching machine with a piece of paper pinned to the back of your shirt. Everyone knows you probably haven’t been practicing, that you have a basketball game that night and your cleats don’t fit. As usual we saw a lot of really good All-Star, Club/Travel Ball players take four swings and miss the ball each time!

PV Art Center Raffle Is Back For The Lucky California’s first and longest running house raffle is back for its 12th year In 2002 Palos Verdes Art Center started the first and best California house raffle – selling out in days. The Palos Verdes Art Center continues with the most dynamic top prize to date – a $1,925,000 Palos Verdes Estates 5 bedroom residence plus $1 million in cash. Tickets will be sold at $150 each – the same price as in the previous raffles, during which the Art Center has given away over $12,500,000 in cash and prizes. The 2014 Palos Verdes Win Your Dream House Raffle will offer two Early Bird Drawings with over $120,000 in cash and prizes, including a 2014 BMW 428i, 2014 Mini Cooper, cash prizes, Ap-

ple iPad Air Tablets + large cash prizes. Special drawings will be held at each of the Early Bird Drawings, as well as the Grand Prize Drawing, for those that purchase two or more tickets at the same time and in the same name(s). Purchasing two or more tickets will offer you a chance to win an additional $75,000 in prizes, if you purchase your tickets by April 4, 2014. Early Bird Drawings will be held April 10 and May 9 at 5:30 p.m. The Early Bird Drawings will be held at PVAC, 5504 West Crestridge Road. The Grand Prize Drawing will be held May 30, 5:30 p.m. at the Palos Verdes Art Center. — email reports

It happens, and it happens all the time. There’s a big difference between swinging at 60 mph pitches in travel ball and 45 mph pitches from a machine. We did see a lot of good fielding and a few strong throws from the outfield. However, none of it really matters until April and May. Note: the PANORAMA newspaper tends to run two or three extra photos of baseball action during the spring months. So be ready. It’s just a matter of weeks before the PVP Girls’ Softball League opens its season with its annual Parade of Teams from Highridge Park to Cornerstone School. The old Big Daddy Nikon camera returned from its refurbishing late this week and will be back in action this weekend. It had taken close to 400,000 pictures and was feeling the wear and tear of many years of service for PVPYouth Sports News and the PANORAMA newspaper. But the even-older grandpa Nikon camera proved to be a capable backup at the Little League tryouts and under the bright lights at the Peninsula High gym and Kelly Johnson Field House. Next up for a good refurbishing will be the Giant Eyeball lens that’s being held together by rubber bands. It’s even older than the backup grandpa camera! As is the tradition during winter break, the Peninsula sent its best soccer teams on the road to compete in various tournaments. The results: Another big bounty of medallions and first-place

trophies. We stated years ago that one of the reasons the Peninsula has not risen higher from the ocean depths than it has, is because this part of the earth is being weighed down by millions of soccer medallions won by thousands of hotshot PV soccer teams over the last four decades. We at PANORAMA headquarters would like to thank the Peninsula soccer community for its continuing support and contributions. It has been at least five years since we published an edition that did not have a photo of a local team showing off its newly won tournament medallions. You guys are great. The Palos Verdes Basketball Association is already at the mid-season mark with teams getting ready for playoff action in a few weeks. The old Big Daddy Nikon will be at all four Peninsula gyms this weekend and next with a new shutter mechanism and clean sensor. So be ready. We’re even going to start taking “Panorama” photographs of the ocean and city views again. You can also expect a lot more “crazy talk” columns with notes and observations about some of the going-ons in this community. So check out the next edition of PVPPANORAMA on Feb. 1 We’re going back on campus for high school and middle school sports, as well as more PVBA and soccer action.

Only 42 Days Until Opening Day Baseball • All four Peninsula Little Leagues plus PVP Pony League held player skill assessments last week. Everyone makes a team and everyone is going to have a good time this season, but that doesn’t mean those "skill assessments" are fun and relaxing for kids or adults. At every league, players are divided by age and then are led through a series of fielding, throwing, batting and running drills. Players are observed by managers and coaches who determine a player’s

baseball and athletic skills by numbers one through ten. A player’s age is the most determining factor in deciding which division a player will be placed - not necessarily skill or baseball playing experience. After tryouts the leagues conduct their players’ draft where the managers and coaches determine where players are placed, hopefully on equally matched teams. Once the number of teams is set in each division, the real hard part begins when the leagues have to schedule practice and field times and a game schedule for the entire season.
