LB earned the victory despite allowing Sunrise to score three runs in the second inning.  LB scored three runs in the fourth inning and was driven by singles by Tanner Griffith and Tyler Trudeau.

Tristan Webb led things off on the pitcher's mound for LB and Bobby Alvear came in to close out the game pitching 3 2/3 innings with no hits allowed..

GLL 11 Allstars!

Granada's 9-10-11 International All Star team lost yesterday in Fremont to San Mateo Little League putting a cap on their amazing run. Although I'm sure they would prefer to be playing ball deeper into the International Tournament, we are extremely proud of what they accomplished!!! Congrats on an amazing summer journey GLL Gold 11s!!!

LB Junior 90s Win! / GLL Black 9s on a Run!

101 degrees!
  • Third Inning Plays Key Role In Livermore Baseball Jr. 90’s Blow Out Over Yreka J90s!

    13 runs in the third inning led Livermore Baseball Jr. 90’s past Yreka Junior 90’s 15-1 on Monday night.  Colin Johnston, Ben Johnston, AJ Arante, Nate Keaney, Bobby Alvear, and Anthony Camilleri powered the big inning with RBIs.

    Alvear took the hill for Livermore Baseball going four innings strong, allowing one run on three hits while striking out one and walking zero.

    The team collected eight hits on the day. Johnston and Camilleri each collected two hits to lead LB. Livermore Baseball was flawless again on defense and didn't commit a single error in the field.

GLL All-Star 11s and LB J90s Update!

GLL 11s Ready to take the Field!

GLL All-Star 11s

 

The GLL 11-year-old International All Star Squad continues to impress as they win both games in Section play this weekend in Fremont!!!

They took Game One 8-5 on Saturday against a strong D52 squad from San Mateo LL. Jack Badger came into pitch, battling to keep the score tied at 5-5. Taelin Alberts broke the tie with a double in the top of the 6th, Cole Cainey and Seth Sanchez drove in runners extending the lead to 8-5. All 13 boys contributed to the GLL 11U All Stars victory against a ferocious opponent.  

 

GLL Players During National Anthem

 

On Sunday in game Two, they squared off against another strong team, Fremont Warm Springs, out of D14 that may have been a little short on pitching due to their earlier matchup. GLL routed them 15-0 setting themselves up for their next game Tuesday at 5:30pm (address for Tuesday’s game listed below along with the full bracket.) 

Tuesday will be a rematch against the winner between San Mateo and Warm Springs, since Granada has not lost, they have two shots to win against the victor of today’s tilt between those two teams to advance to the Divisional tournament!

LB Junior 90s

The Junior 90s Livermore Baseball (LB) All-Star team (combined LLL and GLL) faced off against the Section 4 champions, Woodcreek LL of Sacramento in the first round of the Northern California regional tournament on Saturday 7/13 in Visalia.  

Tristan Webb gave up just 1 run on 6 hits and 1 walk as he hurled a 97-pitch 7-inning complete game to earn the win for LB under the searing Central Valley summer sun.  AJ Arante set the tone for the stout LB defense with a shoestring catch on a hard line drive at third base to end the first inning.  Not to be outdone, second baseman, Adrian Vargas, made a diving catch on a shallow pop-fly on the right field line to save a run in the sixth.  Earlier in the sixth, catcher Denny Derham threw out a Woodcreek baserunner on an attempted steal, with shortstop Bobby Alvear slapping on the tag.  The LB defensemen committed no errors on the evening.  Webb’s only strike out was well timed and came against the last batter of the game.

On offense, the LB bats were relentless. Bobby Alvear, Danny Durham, Colin Johnston, and Tyler Trudeau each collected multiple hits. LB combined to post 14 hits for the evening and were led by Alvear, who was a perfect 4 for 4 at the plate.

Sunday’s action didn’t treat LB quite as well, they fought hard for all 7 innings, but came up short losing 11-12 after being tied 10-10 late in the game aginst D1 Yreka Little League. 

Their next game in Visalia is today at 5pm as they continue their amazing summer run!!!

 

Good luck to both the GLL 11s and LB J90s!!!

For you families at the lower divisions, this should be exceptionally exciting for two reasons: 

 

1. It proves to your kids that if they put the time in effort in, the results and rewards, no matter how far fetched, are possible!

 

2. Many of these ballplayers on these teams, your children know. They are the teenagers that prepped fields for you, umpired games, served you ICEEs in the snack shack, and played wall ball behind the fields or wiffleball on the TBall field with the younger kids. This is your extended baseball family, come root them on!
