After the Chino Hills boys basketball team from 2016 made history last week with a second and third player going among the top six in the NBA Draft, we decided to look up examples from the NFL and MLB for high school teams with the most pro players on the same teams. We believe the...
Former Hart High of Newhall all-state football player & current St. Francis of La Canada head coach Jim Bonds lost his battle to cancer on Wednesday morning (Oct. 28). He was only 51 years old. According to media reports and Twitter, Bonds died in the early morning at UCLA Medical Center only hours after the […]
One of our tasks to complete before California football teams hopefully start practicing next month is to send out questionnaires to the head coach for many of the top large, medium and small school programs. It’s surprising when updating those email lists how many head coaches resign or retire. Here’s a list of those we […]
A late change to the Tampa Bay Rays’ roster gives them a second player from a California high school, which historically is a low total but not so much in recent years. There are a lot more from the Los Angeles Dodgers. We also have many more World Series facts & figures relating to California […]

We do not want to forget about those seniors from the Class of 2020, however, who were going to […]
While there is one California school with two players in this year’s historic World Series between the Chicago Cubs and Cleveland Indians, it’s not a good year for the Golden State overall with the lowest total of alumni players since 1999.
