Congratulations to the 2018 La Jolla Youth Baseball Champions GDC in the Pinto Division, Chris Smith Personal Training in the Mustang Division and Seamgen in the Bronco Divsion.
In the Pinto Divsion the #5 seeded The Cottage team came from the losers bracket to defeat the #1 seeded GDC team 14-11 in the first game on Championship Saturday. This set up a dramatic finish in the second "winner take all" game where The Cottage started off with an early lead, but GDC came back to win 15-12.
In the Mustang Divsion the Chris Smith Personal Training Bulldogs proved that pitching and defense win championships. With Harper Lane starting and Diego Reyes closing games on the mound, teams found it tough to score on them all season. In the championship game timely hits by Barrett Grieve, Toby Litman, and Grayson Blatt helped put runs on the board. Lane and Reyes were both solid at the plate and on the mound as usual. Rocco Taccone pitched a solid 4th inning to hold the lead and hand the ball off to Reyes to slam the door. Throw in some solid defense from Lev Turk and Nicholas Mitchell and the big bat of Nathan Krawiec and the team took home a 19-9 victory over Ethan Turner's Murphy Company.
The Bronco division had one of the more thrilling championship games in recent history. Both teams battled to a 7-7 tie through the regulation 7 innings so the game went to extra innings. In the bottom of the eight Seamgen's Jonathan Freedman led off with a double but Shore Rider got the next two outs with Freedman still on second. With Stephen Hill at the plate for Seamgen, Freedman attempted to steal third. Jack Circuit's throw to third was perfect but Freedman kicked the ball out with his slide, scrambled to his feet and raced home with the winning run and the championship for Seamgen.
