Redlands Bulldogs 12u (navy) team wrapping up their journey together
The original Redlands Bulldogs team is wrapping things up with a final travel tournament in Cooperstown, New York, after recently completing a busy summer schedule in California. It has been an epic journey over the past four years and we are thankful to all the players, coaches, parents, relatives, friends and others who supported us since 2013.
A special thank you to our amazing coaching staff: Mark Moyer, Steve Barkley, Dani Mouri and Eddie Hinojosa. All the coaches brought something unique to the team. The amount of time volunteered by our coaching staff is staggering, when you stop to consider the hundreds of hours we spent together since September 2013.
Our final roster of players, listed by length of service:
Cameron Leaney, #51
J.D. Mouri, #33
Marcus Moyer, #42
Cy Turner, #9
Zayne Turner, #22
Josh Torres, #27
Sammy Hinojosa, #44
Jackson Barkley, #12
Austin Hayes, #55
Jayson Nace, #48
Carter Elliott, #2

What a special group of young men you are. It has been a joy to share the dugout together and lead you into battle on the baseball fields. I have observed so much personal growth and development as baseball players during our time together. You all exemplify hard work, sacrifice, dedication and team spirit. We demanded intensity, focus, integrity and competitive excellence. You delivered time and time again. I thank you for that. Some of you are on your way to academy organizations and most of you will continue to play at the highest level of competition, and we are proud of that. Every player will have the opportunity to play high school baseball, if you continue on your path. More importantly, all of you will become fine young men with passion, integrity and a work ethic that took shape on the baseball fields and in batting cages. I can't wait to see your individual and collective success as you continue forward on your life and baseball journey.
We will leave this website up for our players and families to revisit in the future.
Update: March 2017
The Bulldogs Navy team played at Xtreme Diamond Sports this weekend. The boys did not play their best baseball, but were able to earn the #3 seed in a field of 10 teams. Two more Bulldogs players left the yard for the first time this weekend. Congratulations to Jayson Nace and Austin Hayes for mashing homers over the left field fence in Garden Grove during the same inning! Ziggy Turner almost popped another one out, but came up short, hitting a double off the fence. The bats were hot on Saturday, but ice cold on Sunday. The boys lost to a very talented Outlaws team. Ziggy Turner and JD Mouri hit hard doubles while Yosh Torres and Jayson Nace had hard singles, but it was not enough to get the job done against the Outlaws.
The Navy team has three RBY Select games remaining during March. We will get back to tournament action the weekend of April 1, 2017.

Bulldogs Navy Team News & Review for February 2017
The 12U Navy team returned from winter break during February. Rain was the story before we went on break and it continued to rain on our spring parade in February. We were canceled or limited by the weather conditions throughout much of the month; however, we did play four games.
On February 20, we split a double header, losing to IE Shock and defeating the Bomb Squad. It was a bittersweet experience to get walked off by the IE Shock in our first game back, but we played competitive baseball and looked pretty comfortable at the plate and on the mound throughout the day. Josh Torres and Austin Hayes picked up where they left off and pitched well enough to keep us in both games. The story of the day was JD Mouri's coming out party. JD blasted his first career homer, a big fly well over the center field fence. Congratulations to JD on the first of many homeruns to come. Not to be outdone, Sammy and Ben also smashed homers to center field. We weren't perfect, but it was a solid way to start our spring season.
On February 25, we won both ends of a double header. The boys downed the So Cal Assassins with a barrage of offense. Cy Turner started game one on the mound and picked up the win. Carter Elliott banged a man sized homer to deep left field. We estimated it at about 320 feet on the fly. Many boys enjoyed a fine day; however, the day belonged to Zayne Turner and Josh Torres. Zayne finished 5 for 6 with five line drives, including a 3-run homer to right center field. Congratulations to Ziggy on his first career bomb. His teammates were thrilled for him. Wham Leaney also got in on the homer binge, hitting a homer to right field. Sammy Hinojosa pitched us to victory against the IE Shock in game two. Many players had fine days, including Jayson Nace, JD Mouri and Josh Torres, who came up with three key plays on defense to closeout the game two victory. Every player contributed to the wins. We will get back to game action in March.
Redlands Bulldogs (blue) win the 2016 JWPB Thanksgiving Wood Bat Classic
Despite rain, erratic baseball and three weekends of play, the boys delivered when it mattered most on Sunday. The Bulldogs had appeared in the JWPB Thanksgiving Wood Bat championship game the previous two years, but walked away empty handed. This time, the boys posted back-to-back shutouts on Sunday to bring home their third collection of rings this fall season. They beat the DT Jaxx 5-0 to advance to the championship game, where they posted another shutout against the SoCal Knights. There was little offense on the day, but the pitching and defense was nearly flawless. Starting pitchers Josh Torres and Austin Hayes each went the distance, pitching 6-inning complete games while keeping their pitch counts below 70. It was a great day for the players and families. Enjoy your winter vacations. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
Bulldogs blue team finishes 2nd in USSSA Columbus Classic
The Bulldogs blue team had a strong showing this weekend @ USSSA Big League Dreams. We finished in 2nd place of the gold bracket in the major division. The boys went 3-1-1 overall, eventually falling in the championship game to LA Xtreme. The Bulldogs showed some impressive progressions this weekend especially. While we were not perfect, we showed gains in: hitting to the opposite field, situational hitting, catching defense, controlling opposition baserunning, and critical defense. In practice we have been working in all these areas.
With regard to opposite field hitting, we observed Cy, Marcus, JD, Sammy, Andre and Austin drive the ball hard to the opposite field. In the cage, we have been teaching the boys and preparing them for situational hitting opportunities to hit the ball behind runners in scoring position. This weekend, we saw Yosh, JB, Andre and Ziggy execute with ground balls to the right side, when asked to move the runner(s) over. It was great to see this.
Our catchers made very few mistakes this weekend. We only had a couple of passed balls and very few wild pitches over 5 games. JD, Marcus, Cy and JB did a great job receiving and blocking. Hats off to Coach Mark for the steady improvement in our catching game. Our catching has evolved from below average to well above average since we began in 2013.
Opposing teams are no longer running wild on our pitchers and catcher. Coach Steve has done a great job instructing an abbreviated balance point and slide step. We have been working on pick-offs with more regularity in practice and we are seeing positive results.
In practice, we have been trying to simulate critical defense with stressful scenarios. The hard work paid off this weekend, as we saw Cy and JB stay down on well hit balls and secure the third out of innings. Sammy was also huge, coming up with several short hop picks at first base. We even made a relay play at home, thanks to a strong throw from Marcus to the plate. The coaches have many reasons to be happy. We are proud of player development. Here is a photo of the boys with their 2nd place trophy and USSSA Finalist rings.

12U Bulldogs (Blue) Win First Tourney of the Season
The Bulldogs Blue team won the DC Tournaments Fall Classic AA championship this weekend. Our only loss came to the AAA division champion IHN Warriors. Congratulations to our friends with the Warriors on their success this weekend.
The Bulldogs did it with offense this weekend. We totaled 54 runs over four games. A shout out to Sammy for leaving the yard with a shot to deep center field for a 3-run homer this morning vs the Temecula Longhorns. Including Sammy's big fly, the team posted 19 total extra base hits this weekend! Marcus and Cy hit the ball exceptionally well, but we got consistent production from top to bottom. Every player on the team pitched in with an extra base hit and more this weekend.
The pitching and defense is showing steady improvement. We still have work to do, but we saw some encouraging signs this weekend. We reduced the number of walks issued and did a better job of keeping the ball lower in the zone. Defensively, we made some errors, but we also got some tremendous plays in the outfield from JB Barkley and Andre Adams. We turned some double plays and got good plays from our shortstops and third basemen this weekend. Our catchers did a better job this tournament. The base running was also good. Congrats on the win, boys.
The Bulldogs are Back!
The Bulldogs are excited to shake off the rust in Beaumont for Labor Day next weekend. It will be our first tournament of the 12U season after a 2-month summer break. We wrap up our first week of practice with batting today and plan to be game ready by next weekend. The energy and tempo was excellent all week and the coaches are looking forward to the new season. We can't wait to get these boys on the field and see what they can do. Expectations are high.
THE REDLANDS BULLDOGS WAY
MISSION & PHILOSOPHY:
The Redlands Bulldogs Baseball Club is an advanced program for youth baseball players. Currently, the organization serves 11U and 12U players. The players invited to participate have played club baseball and or have been selected as PONY or Little League All Stars in the past. We have many objectives.
One objective of the Redlands Bulldogs is to offer advanced baseball instruction to players who have displayed exceptional ability and dedication to the game. We train three times per week , compete in one or two tournaments per month, and prepare these players to understand the game at a high level. We are cultivating an atmosphere of positive teamwork and leadership. The long term goal is to prepare these young men to earn a roster spot on a high school team.
Our club is focused on player development. We coach each player to excel at multiple positions and provide infield and outfield position-specific training. Currently, all players are being trained to pitch. Our developmental philosophy has enhanced our ability to compete. It is our goal to be a competitive club, but not at the expense of team development.
We support positive family values and togetherness. We have assembled a great group of families and value team chemistry over winning. We do not recruit good players, we recruit great families.
The Bulldogs Baseball Club is on hiatus for the months of July, August, December & January. Our organizational philosophy is that youth baseball players need approximately four months of rest and recovery time during the calendar year. We believe two 2-month rest periods will satisfy this goal. To date, none of our players have experienced arm injuries under supervision.
Please contact Coach Jared if you are interested in learning more about our program. email@example.com

Bulldogs Celebrate 3 Years as a team!
The Redlands Bulldogs recently completed their third and best season as a team during their 11U campaign. The Bulldogs finished the 11U season with an impressive 36-21-2 record. The boys won multiple tournament championships and were also finalists on numerous occasions.
It is a source of great pride the team made it three years with 9 of the original 12 players. While there will be some changes to the roster for the upcoming 12U season, I want to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of some of the original players and their parents. It has been an amazing journey, and it could not have been possible without dedicated parents and coaches. Thank you for entrusting us with your children. It has been an honor.

Team pool party @ Emily Leaney's home on Friday, June 17th. (5:30pm to 9pm)
The Bulldogs Blue team played great team baseball this Memorial Weekend in Huntington Beach. The players and parents enjoyed camaraderie and quality baseball over the five games played. We enjoyed a few meals together, including a Sunday night bonfire party at Bolsa Chica State Beach. Here are some of the highlights for each player.
JB, #3, doubled, tripled and had a hit from each side of the plate during the same game. Thank you for joining us this weekend, Barkley family.
Will, #8, hit a monster triple, went 3 for 3 in the semi-final game and threw 5 quality innings on Sunday versus OC Xtreme. It was Chilly's best performance as a Bulldog! Congratulations on a splendid weekend, kid.
Cy, #9, handled the bat well and flew around the bases for an inside the park homer this weekend. His defense at 2B and SS was terrific.
Zayne, #22, put together a few hard hit singles and played error-free defense in the field this weekend. His glove was a vacuum and he helped us on Saturday in relief. Good work, Z!
Austin, #23, guest played with us on Saturday and threw 3-1/3 quality innings helping us save our pitching for the remainder of the tournament. He competed hard and pounded the strike zone. Thank you, Austin.
Josh, #27, strung together several hits, played a nice center field and brought his best effort on the mound today. Unfortunately our offense wasn't able to reward him for his awesome effort versus Magnum.
JD, #33, he did it all this weekend. His glove work at 3B and his performances behind the plate were just what this team needed to succeed. His bat was just as terrific. JD also enjoyed his best tournament as a Bulldog this weekend, and it was fun to watch him contribute in all areas of his game. He even got good results on the mound.
Marcus, #42, led the way with his bat this weekend. He hit the ball hard nearly every at bat and also enjoyed an inside the park homer. Marcus also played quality defense behind the plate, at 3b, at SS and made a fine catch in center field.
Sammy, #44, was a boss on the mound in our first elimination game versus Triple Play Baseball. Sammy pitched 4 innings and set a club record with 10 strikeouts in one game. His fastball was crisp and his changeup was nasty. Sammy was tenacious on the mound Sunday. Outstanding performance, Bear!
Wham Wham, #51 was a clutch contributor on offense. Like Marcus, Cy, Chilly and JD, he hit the ball hard nearly every time he stepped into the box. Wham also stole home in a tight game and gave us a 2-run lead. The stands erupted!
Coach Jared's favorite moment was the 1-2-3 (Austin-JD-Wham), bases loaded double play that we turned vs the Bakersfield Yard Dogs on Saturday. It was a game changer and sucked the steam and momentum out of the rallying Yard Dogs. Thank you for an outstanding weekend, everyone. I hope you enjoyed the teamwork as much as the coaches.
Bulldogs Playing Memorial Day State Championship this weekend
The Bulldogs are playing in Xtreme Diamond Sports' State Championship tournament this coming weekend. 17 teams are currently entered into the event. The tournament will be held at Mile Square Park in Fountain Valley or the Huntington Beach Sports Complex nearby. The tournament cost was $695. The fee will be approximately $70 per player depending on our final roster for this event. We have requested afternoon start times to accommodate parents' requests.
The current plan is to play two tournaments in June and then go on break after June 19, 2016. We have injured players and players that will be on vacation in late June and July, so it looks like our last team event for the 11U season will be a tournament ending on June 19, 2016.
Let's go Bulldogs!
Bulldogs Red 11U AA team takes second at Beaumont Tournament
The Bulldogs AA 11U team lost a hard fought championship game to Desert Baseball on Sunday, 4-3, to take second place in the Beaumont DC Tournament. The Bulldogs had a strong showing in all three games, especially from pitchers Johnny Andrews, Noah Smith, Carter Mierzwik and Marcus Moyer.
The Championship game was highlighted by defensive efforts all over the field. With runners in scoring position in the third inning and the infield up, SS Noah Smith fielded a ground ball between short and third and threw a strike home to cut off the potential first run. Then, with bases loaded and two-outs in the 4th and still no score, John Luke Vega made a running, over the shoulder catch in deep right field to save the inning. Down 4-0 in the top of the sixth, the Bulldogs made a run with RBI's by Smith, Jackson Barkley, and Dane Lujan before the Desert team made the final out.
The team is still looking for a couple of experienced players, preferably with some pitching experience, looking to develop their game from experienced coaches in a competitive fun atmosphere. If you are interested, please contact Coach Steve Barkley at 909-553-1028.
