NCLL takes Majors TOC

By Sanjna Shukla

District 14 -- covering Fremont and Newark -- Little League baseball's Majors (11-13 year olds) Tournament of Champions playoffs were characterized by hot weather, long innings and some of the best teams in the Little League. Niles-Centerville Little League defeated Newark American Little League 7-1 to become the TOC champions.

Although NCLL was the runner up in the Minor Invitational, they were the champions of the major division. The team, sporting Yankees jerseys, dominated from the very first game against Fremont American (FALL). The Yankees shut out FALL 3-0 after impressive pitching from both Alex Rodriguez and Sam Brown. In the bottom of the fifth inning, Sam Brown had an impeccable pitching run as three consecutive outs prevented FALL from scoring any runs. Hitter Jesse Olivera of NCLL also had an amazing tournament as his doubles allowed for multiple RBIs.

Overall, the tournament was a competitive one, but NCLL dominated from the beginning. Both offensively and defensively, NCLL proved to be on top of their game and never lost momentum throughout the tournament. From the first pitch to the last, NCLL excelled and eventually came to the top with a dominating win over NALL.
