CA District 14 suffered several injuries and heat related incidents yesterday. Umpires Frank Bontempo and Mark Card had to remove themselves from their games because of the heat. I'm glad to report they each were contacted last night and are doing well!!
In the Minor Invitational Semi-Final game a pitcher from the Warm Springs Little League team took a line drive off his forehead. He was able to leave the field without help and was taken to urgent care in Fremont. We have not heard form WSLL with an up date and we will post it when available.
The most serious occured in the Major Semi-Final Game between Centerville National LL and Warm Springs Little League. Assistant CA District 14 Administrator, Tom Curtis, was the Tournament Director. Below is his report;
As I reported, a WSLL coach was injured through a purely accidental contact to his forehead with a bat in pre-game warm-ups. The bat was being used by the WSLL manager in a correct manner – just a case of wrong place at the wrong time. The coach suffered an approximate 1-2 inch laceration just about his left eyebrow, which of course produced a substantial amount of blood. 911 was called, paramedics arrived. In the end, he was bandaged and elected to self-transport via his wife to Washington Hospital for evaluation and stitches on the advice of the paramedics. He seemed fine when he walked to their car, except for the cut.
I would like to offer some specific acknowledgement and thanks to both Jay Ingraca and Rick Black from CNLL for their calm, efficient and very gracious assistance through this incident. Rick immediately assessed the situation, helped administer proper first aid, and kept the injured coach calm. Jay quickly grabbed his phone and calmly called 911, offering the dispatcher very effective details on the accident, the coaches condition and precise instructions as to the location of the incident. Both Rick and Jay helped the WSLL manager get the players out of the dugout and to a neutral location so the paramedics could work. Their reaction and quick response to this issue had a very positive and calming effect on the players, the WSLL fans and the situation in general.
I would respectively request that both Jay and Rick be acknowledged by District 14 for their actions. In my view, their efforts were a true representation of what Little League is all about.
On behalf of CA District 14 Little League Baseball, a big THANK-YOU. to Jay & Rick and may God Bless You!!!

CA District 14 held their TOC/Invitational Meeting on May 30th and their All Star Meeting on June 1. According to the District 14 Administrator, Reggie Torres, " these last two meetings have been the worst as far as attendance is concerned, in the 23 years I have been a District Administrator. Some leagues sent one or two people while others did not have a single person show up. The TOC meeting should have had 90 managers and coaches show up for the 33 teams in the tournament, while the All StarTournament has 37 teams with three adults in the coaching staff, but 25 people attended the meeting. The leagues should be ashamed of themselves. I do thank those that took the time to attend the meetings."
The District Tournaments start in early June and and the All Stars around late June.
