The Yankees are the majors TOC champions!
The Yankees got outstanding pitching from Isaiah Hernandez and Joel Quemada, and a clutch 3-run home run by Noah Guadalupe, as they knocked off the #1 seeded Montclair White Sox in the TOC championship game. The Yankees win the tournament with a 9-3 victory over the White Sox. Congratulations to manager Louie Pro and the UALL Yankees!
This is the second year in a row that the Yankees have won our in-house TOC championship.
The Indians are the Minor A champions!
The Indians may have lost the first game of the Minor A playoffs, but they sure weren't ready to give up after one game.
The Indians stormed back to win the TOC with their fourth consecutive win in less than a week, as they took the championship game from the A's by the score of 10-4. All Star teammates Jaeden Quemada, Isaiah Fernandez, and Julius Beltran combined to pitch a great game, while the Indian offense was led by Alonzo Saucedo's 2 hits and Jaeden Quemada's triple. David Baumgartner cemented the win with a 2-run double in the last few minutes of the game.
The Indians become the first team in recent memory to sweep the loser's bracket and come all the way back to win the tournament, and they also become the first Minor A team in a couple of years to finish first both in the regular season as well as in the TOC.
Congratulations to manager Daniel Guerrero and the Minor A Indians for a great ending to a great season! Especially when you keep in mind that they had the youngest team in Minor A. Several of the Indians players were moved up from Minor B right before the season started so that we would be able to have four teams. And then they wind up winning the championship.
Great season Indians!
Home Run Derby & Minor Division Skills Results
Last Saturday evening, UALL hosted our annual home run derby and skills competition. All majors players age 12 and any other player hitting a fence-clearing home run during the season were invited to participate. At the end of our multi-round home run derby, the 2016 derby champ was: Danny Lopez of the Major Indians! Congratulations Danny!
The t-ball, minor b, and minor a divisions also held their skills competition. All players were invited to see how far they could hit the ball, throw the ball, and sprint to first base. Below are the results for each event in each competition:
Thanks to all who participated and congratulations to all our winners!
