    SANTA FE SPRINGS, Calif
    . – Someone had to step up, and if he wouldn’t, who would?

    In 2015, the Southern California Independent Fastpitch League (SCIFL) was facing a leadership crisis. Its long-time president, Robert Hernandez, was retiring with no one willing to take the reins. Except for one man.

    Realizing the league was in danger of folding when Hernandez stepped down, Jesse Ortiz essentially said, “I’ll do it.”

    “It was going to fold unless someone took over,” said Ortiz, 44. “So I decided to step up and do it to keep it going.”
