The Spring Tournament took on it's new name this year; The Dorothy Dupont Memorial Tournament.  Dorothy Dupont was a valuable Little League volunteer in District 33 since 1978. She lost her battle with kidney cancer and passed away on February 14th 2012. She served in many capacities, starting with Mission Village Little League (the previous name of Serra Mesa).  Dorothy was instrumental as the President of Mission Village of obtaining the use of the property and moving the league to the present location. She was on the Distict Staff before Clay was the District Administrator and did all the District game schedules. District 33 is honored to have Dorothy name representing this tournament. 

Congratulation to La Mesa National Little League's Reds for capturing the DDM Flag. Thanks to all the volunteers at Murphy Canyon Little League for hosting this tournament.

2012 Juniors Spring Tournament - Week 1 Re-Cap

 April 14th and 15th, 2012

Because of the rain, we had to make some adjustments to our 1st Annual Junior Spring Tournament Week 1. Since we invited 2 teams from the Bay Area to participate in this tournament, we played 3 exhibitions games with the District 57 teams. The PAL D57 Phillies could not stay for their 2nd game against Mid City on Sunday because they needed to head back to the Bay Area.  Murphy Canyon stepped up and fielded a team to play Mid City at the last minute for game 4.

3rd Annual CBI Tournament Re-Cap
March 26-28, 2010

 Congratulations to SCLL Pirates for winning the 2010 CBI

We had a challenging tournament. The lights did not work due to someone stealing the copper wire from them. The first night we had gale force winds that blew down the tents of those that were tent camping on the grass. We had to change the schedule and make  adjustments on the fly.

There was a great deal of adversity and pressure often reveals character. In this case I can only complement the players, coaches, managers, umpires and parents for their outstanding character. There were few if any complaints. There was a great deal of perseverance, endurance and making it work. I believe that the kids enjoyed the weekend and most if not all did not notice the difficulties that were overcome by every ones hard work. Once again it proved that this district is made up of great people and that is what makes it great.

In the end San Carlos Little League captured the flag. Chuck Cadwalader from Lake Murray Little League was chosen as the "Outstanding Manager" of the tournament.

The umpires did a great job. There were many volunteers that helped prep the field, run the snack bar and clean up that also did a great job.

Thanks again to the outstanding job that Tom Stoddard did in organizing, running the tournament while finding time to umpire several games, a man that did it all.

2009 CBI Tournament at Western Region Re-Cap


 Congratulations to La Mesa National

The second annual CBI Tournament was a great success. There were 8 leagues that participated, Mission Trails, Rolando, Tierrasanta, La Mesa National, North Park, Mid City, San Carlos and Lake Murray. We could not have asked for nicer weather. Each team was able to play three games. La Mesa National won the flag with a tough victory over Tierrasanta. The teams that played will go away with lasting memories and friendships that will last. One of the benefits from staying on site at Western Region Headquarters is the bonding that takes place among team members. The players loved playing in the same stadium that they see on television during the regional finals. We all had a great time. Congratulations to North Park's manager, Mike Candelario, who was presented with the CBI Manager's Sportsmanship Award. Mike is a great credit to his league and to Little League Baseball.

2009 District 33 Spring Tournament Re-Cap
March 27th thru March 29th, 2009

The First Annual District 33 Spring Tournament was held Friday, March 27th thru 29th at Murphy Canyon Little League’s, Santo and Damato Fields. The tournament was a tremendous success as Major Division teams from eight District 33 Little Leagues participated. The Championship game was a thriller under the lights as the Padres from Kearny Mesa Little League came back from four runs down in the bottom of the sixth inning to earn the win from the Bears of Rolando Little League.
Congratulations to all the teams who played hard for each other during the event. Special gratitude goes out to the volunteer umpires who took time to work the games and ensure a fair and well played tournament.

The 2008 Clay Berry Invitational Baseball Tournament Re-Cap
March 28-30, 2008

The Clay Berry Invitational Tournament at Western Region was held on the March 28th thru March 30th. This was the first time that D33 used the Western Region facilities to host a tournament. While we hoped it would be a good time and a success, what took place far exceeded any expectations that we possibly had. We would like to thank all the managers, coaches, parents and players for representing their league and our District with such class. The standard of excellence we strive for in this District was clearly upheld at this tournament. Jim Gerstenslager, Western Region Director, complimented the conduct of our players in and around the facility. He was impressed with the attention to detail in regards to safety and believed it was the first time he had hosted and not spotted a safety violation regarding, catcher equipment, on-deck-batters, helmets or other issues. Needless to say he was very much impressed with the way our leagues conducted their business as well as themselves. A special "Thank You" goes out to Tom Stoddard, President of Mid City Little League, for the great work that he did organizing this inaugural tournament at Western Region. We are glad that Tom paid attention to Jim Gerstenslager's speech at last year's District Dinner. What a tremendous asset he is to our District. One area of concern we had going into this tournament was getting umpires. As it turned out we had so many great umpire volunteer we were able to use 4 umpires on each game. It ended up being a great experience for all the umpires that attended. All the games were well played and a few with some exciting endings. We had one young man from Mid City pitch a 6-inning perfect game only to lose in extra innings. We had an exciting game between Lake Murray and La Mesa National that was won on a late two run home run. We also would like to thank Riddell for providing all the balls for the tournament and Powerade for providing sports drinks for every team. We hope that everyone who attended the CBI Tournament had a great time and can't wait to do this again. Congratulations to all the teams that participated and to La Mesa National White Sox for bringing home the flag.
