The new age determination date will be effective immediately, starting with the 2016 season. This was the implementation used for the 2015 season, with players turning 4 to 9 years old during the 2015 calendar year to use the December 31 age determination date. That implementation remains in place, except instead of using December 31, you will use August 31.
The 11 year old GLL Black team came in 1st place in the
Turf-n-Dirt Tournament hosted by Tassajara Valley.
This team lost only one game and went 4-1 in the tournament. They lost to San Ramon in the preliminary stage but beat their rivals in a tense semifinal. They then played Danville on Wednesday. In the third inning, with the bases loaded, Matty hit a two run double. Andrew Berg had a good day hitting 3 for 4. Matty was dealing and had held Danville to just 2 runs. They were leading 5-2 in the 5th inning, but Danville came back and scored 5 runs off of Neil Shah to make it 7-5 Danville. Neil Shah then led off the inning with a single followed by a double by Jake Fields that scored him. The inning went on with 4 runs coming in until Darren Dangler ended the inning with a lineout. The score was then 9-7 with Granada on top. Neil Shah took the mound and got one quick out and then ran out of pitches. Then Colin Pearce shut down the last two batters to win the championship 9-7 against Danville. Congratulations to the coaches and players for a wonderful effort in the postseason.
