The Laguna Beach baseball team has set the new standard for the program.
A stirring run to begin the 2011 season caught the eye of many who — outside Laguna circles — didn't really take much notice of the Breakers before the season's first pitch. That all changed when Laguna ran off 14 victories to establish a new school record and creep into the CIF Southern Section Division 4 rankings, where it currently holds down the No. 5 spot.
The Breakers picked up victory No. 12 March 31 by walloping visiting Saddleback, 25-0, in an Orange Coast League game. The streak grew two more games when the Breakers opened play at the Anaheim Lions Tournament on Saturday with wins over Ramona (7-5) and Peninsula (2-0). It ended, however, Monday in a 6-1 tournament loss at Pacifica of Garden Grove. On Tuesday, the Breakers were edged by host Sunny Hills, 8-7, in another tournament game.
