In a spectacular run toward a trip to the Big League World Series in Easley, SC, the District 14 (D14) Big League all-star team from NorCal fell just short against a talented team from Thousand Oaks (SoCal) in the championship game of the Western Regionals in Bremerton, WA on July 20.
It was an emotional ending for D14 as several team members are 18 years old and have reached the end of their Little League playing days. Overall, the D14 all-star team had a record of 10-1 and won the Section 3 and Division II (NorCal) tournaments, were the second best team in the Western Region which covers more than 10 states - a truly remarkable achievement.
The D14 ballplayers were: Mark Bontempo, Jeff Chu, Brandon Facha, Brandon Fuhs, James Gaffey, Scott Havard, Kenny Jacoby, Devon Jones, Christian Letona, Reid Marion, Wyatt Ott, Martin Padilla, Austin Robles, Thomas Rodriguez, and JJ Sanchez and coaches Wayne Chung, Ed Hugo and Lucky Ott.
Congratulations to all on a job well done!
