D1 SEASON 15-1 PLAYOFF BRACKET

D1 RECAP:

The California Lookouts almost had a league first undefeated D1 season. No team has ever gone undefeated in D1. They won the National MSBL tournament in Las Vegas, and were recovering from fatigue and injuries from the tournament. The following week they forfeited against the Cal Stars, which gave the Lookouts their only blemish on the season. Justin Schoeller Lookouts are looking stronger than ever. Schoelly has not changed much of his personnel, but they've just started to click. The Lookouts will rely on Scott Erwin's arm to secure back-to-back rings for the Lookouts. They must first contend with a hot IE Aztec team. Don't expect Manny Flores to roll over and show their necks to the Lookouts. Manny is coming off of an exclamation point win versus the Cal Stars. If Aztec Milo Mendoza's arm shows up, expect some high 80 to low 90 gas coming to a catchers glove near you. The Lookouts have traditionally done well against fastball pitchers, so Milo will have to work in some sliders to be effective against Justin Schoeller (0.524), Matt Johnson (0.381), Jason Tackett (0.357), and Tito Pachuca. 

The Cal Stars look to beat an always tough Redlands Pirates team led by Gerald Davis, and the Breault brothers. The Stars feature an onslaught of talented players ranging from UC Riverside to the University of La Verne baseball player alum. Expect this game to be close if the Pirates pitching and defense shows up.

D2 RECAP:

Arguably the most exciting division this season. There was a three-way tie for second place between the California Athletics, Perris Aguilas, and IE Nationals. IE Nationals fell victim to the California Athletics, and the Perris Aguilas during the regular season. That left the California Athletics, and Perris Aguilas for consideration of the two seed. The teams met twice during the season and split the series at 1-1 each. This forced a tie-breaker of runs against which gave the Athletics the edge by just two runs. This was the closest tie-breaker in league history. Those two runs ended up being extremely important as it gives the Athletics a first round bye into the semi-finals. This could be huge so they can save their top pitching, while the winner of the Aguilas and Brewers will potentially use their strongest arms to advance and meet the Athletics in the semi's.

 

Earlier in the season, Steve Sanchez, and his California Athletics played a tough 5x champion D1 Cal Stars team. The Athletics barely lost in a tight 9-7 game. Look for the Athletics to seek their first Premier title.

In the Athletics way in the other bracket is the #1 seed Chino Patriots. Cole Kiphen and the Patriots have been improving every season. They're getting stronger and stronger. Cole reminds the league every playoff season that his goal is to make it to D1. It looks like his prediction is coming to fruition shortly, as they continue to win in every division thus far. Prior to the Patriots having another ship appearance, they must first battle it out between the winner of the Drillers, and Robert Rosas' IE Nationals. If the Nationals can get past Greg Jones, and the Drillers, they will have a tough game vs the Patriots. This will be an interesting playoff format. Expect the fellas to play hard and leave it all on the field.

D3 RECAP:

The D3 defending champion Norco Angels take the number one seed with a perfect 10-0 record. The Norco Angels were led by Manager Paul Boskill. Very few managers can reach the level of persistence and attention-to-detail as Paul, and his passion for the game shows in the form of a successful program. Paul added some new talent to this years roster, and has put together a cohesive squad. Notable players include: Blayne Langdon (0.571), John Kroener (0.545 and second highest RBI on the team with 14), Brandon Conlin (Former Home-Run Derby Champion- 0.429), and Robert Castillo (0.429). No championship caliber team would be complete without the pitching to back it up. Colin and Kroener also assisted on the other side of the ball with their bump performances. 

The Norco Angels get the winner of the IE Tigers, and IE Expos. The Tigers would have a better chance vs the Norco Angels with a deeper pitching rotation than the IE Expos. If the Expos offense could fire on all cylinders, and get a little help from their relievers, then they may stand a chance. Ray Ramirez of the IE Expos would have to pitch an entire 9 inning gem vs. the IE Tigers to save pitching for the Norco Angels. Justin Lewis and the IE Tigers have plenty of pitching, but will need to tighten up on defense and get some key hits to get past the Expos.  The Expos have some powerful bats in Art Godoy, John Laine, and Armon Zolfaghari. 

On the other side of the bracket, look for the Corona Hops to be the favorite. However, never count out the "Cinderella Story" team from seasons past....Moreno Valley A's led by Edgar Maciel. The Mo Val A's are one of the leagues original teams, and make themselves a team to reckon with come every season in playoff's. If the A's get hot, they've been known to eliminate top seeded teams when the ship has been on the line.

D4 RECAP:

Congratulations to the Nats 2 for winning the division. They enter playoffs as the #1 seed with a 7-3 record. The Nats 2 have put up impressive numbers led by offensive standouts Angel Valencia (BA: 0.588), and Robert Rosas (BA: 0.533). Anwar Salahuddin, Robert Valencia, and Abel Escarcega who all finished the season with a 0.500 batting average. The Nats 2 gave up the second least amount of runs in the division.

The top D4 pitcher came from the Leones Antonio Saldana. Never count out David Avila and the Los Amigos baseball club. They know how to win in the playoffs. This will be an interesting road to the ship. Good luck to all teams.
