Youth Athletic Fields At Risk; Here’s How To Help

San Diego is planning to redevelop the De Anza area on the northeast end of Mission Bay. The impacted area includes the Bob McEvoy Youth Fields, which are the headquarters for multiple Mission Bay Youth Sports leagues, including Mission Bay Youth Baseball (MBYB). There is no guarantee that these fields will be preserved for our youth use, and there’s a very real prospect that they may be lost in the revitalization effort.

The impact of that would be significant. At present there are almost 2,000 local youth players using those fields year round in three different community leagues. There are three baseball fields, one softball field and six soccer fields in that small complex. A loss of any fields would result in the downsizing, or outright elimination of the Mission Bay baseball and softball leagues and PYSL, and youth in the community would lose the opportunity to participate in affordable local non-profit youth sports leagues.  more »

Bike Theft in Pacific Beach: How to Protect Yourself

Many bikes in Pacific Beach are being stolen.  Using sturdy locks and common sense are important, but if you’re a theft victim anyway, there’s one thing you must do to get your bike back.

And you have to do it now.

According to the San Diego Police, the only way a recovered bike can be returned to you is if you have a record of the bike’s serial number. Most bike serial numbers are on the bottom bracket from which the pedal cranks protrude.  Just turn the bike upside-down and record the number.  If it’s not there, look around the frame.  If you can’t find a serial number anywhere, an alternate method is to have your driver’s license number engraved on the frame.

Keep the number in a safe place and provide it to police if you’re the unfortunate victim of a bike theft.
