Coach Jaime Garcia addresses the South Pasadena baseball team after beating Viewpoint, 1-0, to advance to the CIF Southern Section Division 6 quarterfinals.

Noah Takeda-Teer graduated a week ago, but as the South Pasadena High School baseball team continues through the postseason, what he plays for is still clear.
“I’m playing for the school, I’m playing for the city,” Takeda-Teer said, “because we want to bring a CIF [championship] back to South Pas.”
The Tigers took their latest step toward that goal on Tuesday afternoon by beating Calabasas Viewpoint, 1-0, in the second round of the CIF Southern Section Division 6 playoffs.
The win advances the Tigers to the quarterfinals for the first time since 2005, where they will host Elsinore (17-5 record), the Inland Valley League champions, today at 3:15 p.m.
