CA District 14 Little League held their 20th Annual Umpires Recognation Dinner on November 22, 2014 at the Sinodinos Steakhouse in Newark, CA.

The dinner is in honor of the CA District 14 Umpires Staff for their volunteering during the 2014 Tournament season. The dinner started out with the CA District 14 Umpire Coordinator, Rob McCarthy, welcoming everybody. 

After the dinner was served, Rob thanked the umpires for volunteering their time for the kids of District 14. Rob introduced Ron Roberts, from CA District 59 (Milpitas/San Jose). Ron was selected to umpire at the 2014 Little League World Series in Williamsport. Ron told his fellow umpires his experiences in not only umpiring at the World Series, but how he got ready for Williamsport during the season and post season.

Rob passed out two MUC Awards at the dinner. A MUC Award is an award that goes to the umpire for making the Most Unusual Call during the post season. This years winners (?) were Steve Sawamura and CA District Administrator, Reggie Torres, who won his for replacing Vic Langford who injured his knee in the opening game of the 2014 Big League season, and not blowing any calls or looking inept!!

A few more serious awards were also presented; Matt Heminez (CALL) was presented the Rookie of the Year award, Bud Traynor (NALL) captured the Most Improved award and Charlie Rigg wan the Jay Horry Umpire of the Year award.

Jay Horry was the first CA District 14 Umpire Coordinator and laid out the format for the District 14 Umpire program. Past District Coordinators, Nat Bryant and Bruce Marcellus and current coordinator, Rob McCarthy have brought the plan into being.

Congratulations to all the award winners and Thank-You to all the CA District 14 Umpires!

District 14 Challenger All Star Team Plays In Intermediate World Series

image_name2
2014 Districts 14 & 44 Challenger All Star Teams

The CA District 14 Challenger All Star team played the CA District 44 Challenger All Stars in a game on Sunday August 3rd, during the Little League Intermediate (50/70) World Series that was hosted by CA District 57 (Tri-Valley) and played at Max Bear Park, home to Granada Little League, in Livermore. 

Before the game started, the players and their buddies stood on their base lines and heard their names announced. The Series Umpires came out and took turns calling the game. As the teams played two innings, where every player received two at bats, the players from the teams playing in the World Series came out to watch.

 

After the game, the players again stood on their base lines and each received a gift from CA District 57's Staff Member Gina Herman and District Administrator, Dave Wetmore.

 The teams then went to the picnic area where they traded pins. In a very touching moment, players from the World Series came over and asked the players from the Challenger teams for their autographs......Little League at it's best! Some of the comments that the parents made were...."Thank you for creating a spectacular milestone event for our special child. He still has the medals around his neck and keeps touching the souvenir pins"....."How incredibly esteem-building to be asked to autograph the hats of the World Series players!!"....."My son felt like a movie star"....."Our son is really timid at baseball games but after the game he felt very proud of himself"....."One of the coolest moments was when the World Series players came over and gave high fives traded pins and asked our players for autographs!"....".Many of our players cannot verbalize how they feel. As parents of special need kids it is heart warming to see our kids being able to participate at an event and be recognized by their typical peers." CA District 14 is very proud of being asked to be one of the two first Challenger teams to ever play during the Little League Intermediate World Series and is very proud of the players, coaches and buddies that participated.
