Final weekend of regular season play; EOST Brackets for AA-Jun

 

While it's been a pretty wet season, it's hard to believe that we've reached the final weekend of regular season play.  It seems fitting that we have a threat of rain on our final Saturday of the regular season.  As we write this, all fields are open for play and the sun is starting to poke out - let's hope the rain holds out!

Regular season games continue through this week for all divisions, wrapping up before the Memorial Day weekend.  

Next up: END OF SEASON TOURNAMENTS for the AA through Junior Divisions  

Brackets are now available for the End of Season Tournaments.  Presently they just list the seedings; actual team names will be filled in after regular season play concludes this week.  Seedings are based on the regular season standings for each division.  

Following the End of Season Tournament for the Majors Division is the District 54 Tournament of Champions!  FALL will send two Major Division teams to the Tournament of Champions.  Play starts on June 18th and will be hosted by the Maidu and Hangtown Little Leagues.  Congratulations to the Major Division Yankees, who secured the first FALL TOC berth by clinching first place in the season standings last Wednesday with a victory over the Angels.  The second FALL TOC berth will be determined by the Majors End of Season Tournament (the winner gets the second berth, or the second place team if the Yankees win).

FALL will be hosting the Junior Division Tournament of Champions at Nisenan Field.  

GO FALL!

Cross Town Classic CHAMPS!

CONGRATS FALL!

Congratulations to the Majors Indians, who topped the FN Giants 13-3 to win the Major division cross town championship.  Matt Sliger delivered five innings of shutout ball, allowing only two hits, and delivering 13 strikeouts.  Jackson Inclan delivered a solo blast in the second inning, and Austin Escamilla added three RBI's on three hits to fuel the 13 run offensive performance. 

AND

Congratulations to the AAA Royals, who defeated the FN Braves to claim the AAA division Cross Town Title! The Royals were down by one run after two innings when Johnny Koett delivered a two run triple, and later score on a wild pitch to put the Royals up 3-1.  Each team followed with four runs in the fourth inning, and then the Royals added three insurance runs in the 5th en route to the 10-5 victory.

Great job!
