Yuba City wins fourth straight; coach Stassi announces retirement

By Bill Paterson

Sam Kuykendall and Cody Kent combined for a five-hitter and Blake Parks and Zak Morgan had RBI singles to lead Yuba City to an emotional 4-1 win over Benicia in today's Sac-Joaquin Section Division III baseball championship game at Sacramento City College.

It was the fourth consecutive D-III section title for the Honkers (29-2), the third straight over the Panthers (20-9).

After the win, longtime Yuba City coach Jim Stassi announced he was retiring to spend time watching his sons play.

Brock Stassi pitches at Nevada, Max Stassi is in the Oakland A's organization and youngest son, Jake, a senior on this year's Honkers team, is headed to Long Beach State.
