Tim Reidâs life has been a series of ups and downs. Today, heâs in a pretty good place with his Bishop Broncos baseball team undefeated in league play and almost assured a spot in the CIF playoffs.
But, the Broncos Bullpen batting cages, a business he started last July, is in danger of closing. What he didnât figure on was the interminable slow period during the winter. Now heâs in a hole and needs help.
The Bishop Lady Broncos softball team lost a tough game, 0-8, to the Kern Valley Lady Broncs Friday.
âYou have to score to win,â said coach Stacy Van Nest. âUnfortunately, we couldnât get past second base.â
Pitcher Megan Erwin, while on the mound, got hit hard by the ball in the fourth inning, but finished the game.
The Broncos fall to 3-5 in High Desert League, 9-10 overall.
The final two league games are on the road, at Rosamond today and Desert Thursday.
The first two innings of Friday afternoonâs baseball match up between the Bishop Broncos and the Kern Valley Broncs were scary close.
Kern Valley jumped out to a 1-4 lead in the second inning. Bishop was plagued with weird errors until the third inning when the real Broncos nine took the field and a 5-4 lead.
âWe fielded 11 players Friday,â said coach Tim Reid, âand every one made a huge contribution. It was a total team effort.â
The verdict is in on murder suspect Louis LePlat. He has been found guilty of second-degree murder and found not guilty of murder in the first-degree. The state mandated sentence for the offense is 15 years to life. LePalt will be sentenced at 8:30 a.m. on May 27 in Ventura.
Case information from Ventura County Superior Court states the jury was reportedly âhungâ on the first-degree murder charge the day before finding LePlat guilty of second-degree murder on April 29.
Its been a long time coming, but finally, some of the victims of day care provider Guadalupe Almaguer know what power â and justice â feel like.
