Baseball: Mystery at St. Francis
La Canada St. Francis had its first Mission League baseball game on Monday, but its coach, Brian Esquival, is not with the Golden Knights, and Principal Tom Moran said Monday he had "no comment" as to Esquival's status.
A varsity asistant, along with a junior varsity coach, were running the team against Loyola. Esquival also was not present for a doubleheader against Salesian on Saturday.
Esquival was seen scouting teams on Friday at the Harvard-Westlake-Alemany game but has not returned any messages.
