MSJLL Captures Intermediate Championship

The Mission San Jose Little Leagues' 50/70 All Stars squeeked out a 6-5 victory over Fremont American LL to win the 2015 CA District 14 Intermediate (50/70) All Star Tournament.

MSJLL had forced FALL into the "what-if game" by easing by FALL 11-10 in the first game in the Championship Round.

FALL opened the scoring in the 1st inning, putting up a single run.

The top of the second saw MSJ score two runs to take a 2-1 lead. MSJ scored single runs in the 3rd and 5th innings and going into the bottom of the 5th the scoreboard read MSJ 4, FALL 1. FALL added a run to their total and going into the top of the 6th MSJ held a 4-2 lead.

Each team added a run in the 6th and the 7th started with MSJ holding a slim 5-3 lead. The 7th saw MSJ rally for 3 runs to take a 6-3 lead going into the bottom of the 7th.

As this Championship Round has shown, no lead is safe as FALLs' three singles put 2 runs on the board.  With one out and a runner on second, the FALL  batter hit a looping fly ball to left, that the MSJ fielder made a good catch on and was able to double off the FALL runner, who had thought the ball was going to drop. Final score MSJLL 6 FALL 5.

Mission San Jose will next play on July 4th at the Smith Baseball Field Hwy 1 & Wavecrest Rd, Half Moon Bay. The game will start at 11:00 am.

 This tournament is hosted by CA District 52 and Half Moon Bay Little League. Schedules will be posted in the Handouts section under Section Tournaments.

Congratulations to Mission San Jose Little League on winning the 2015 CA District 14 Intermediate All Star Championship and Good Luck in the 2015 CA Section 3 Tournament!

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.
