Xtreme was down 7-6 with two outs, two strikes and nobody on, when David Chase laced a single into Right-Center. Evan Smith then belted a pitch that hit the very top of the left-field wall, nearly missing a two-run walk off home run. With the tying run on 3rd and the go ahead run on 2nd base, Ryan Times ripped a shot at the Shortstop. The Petaluma SS did a nice job to knock it down and quickly picked it up and threw to 1st, where he threw low and skipping by the first-baseman allowing the tying and winning run to score and advancing Xtreme into the Championship Game. In the Championship Game, the Xtreme team put on a show, hitting 8 home runs and defeating the Huntington Beach Riptide, 20-5 to win the 2017 Week 10 Cooperstown Championship and the first Cooperstown Title in Xtreme's 4-year history!!!

~ Nov. 29-30 : 12U-Select Captures its 1st USSSA Tournament Trophy
The 12U Select team has been somewhat snake bitten on Sunday's all year. After capturing many trophies the prior year, the 12U Select advanced a Division from Double AA to Triple AAA this fall season. The team was more than holding its own in Triple AAA tournaments and would do very well on Saturday in its tournaments. But on Sunday, they'd make the Semi-Finals of the Gold Bracket only to lose by 1 run in 4 consecutive tournaments. Finally the 12U Select broke through in the Thanksgiving USSSA Tournaments on Sunday by defeating the So. Cal Halos 10-4 and then 7-1 over the Yard Dogs to advance to the Championship Game. The 12U-Select ran out of steam as they played at 8am, 2pm and the Championship Game at 6pm, where they lost to the #1 Seeded and Undefeated IHN Warriors. Still the Championship Finalists Trophy was a nice breakthrough for the 12U Select team and finally getting that Sunday monkey off their back. Congrats to the 12U-Select Team!

~ ALL 4 Xtreme Teams Make Championship Game
Xtreme has had an incredible amount of success since it started travel ball teams 18 months ago. But this past weekend was the most successful weekend the Xtreme has ever experienced. 4 Xtreme teams entered tournaments and all 4 made the Championship Game, with 3 of them winning the tournament.
  • 11U Elite Wins Arizona Major's Tournament: After going 2-0 in Pool Play, the team won its first two Playoff Games to advance to the Championship vs the #1 Seeded Arizona Grinders. Down 2-0 going into the Top of the 6th, Matthew Ramirez bombed a double to score 2 and tie up the game. The Grinders loaded the bases in the bottom of the 6th, but Xtreme got a ground ball force out to end the threat and send the game into extra innings. In the 7th Connor Smith lined a double to score Christian Recendez to put the team up 3-2. In the bottom of the 7th, the Grinders got a runner to 3rd and with 2-outs, Xtreme pitcher Deon Dizon got the Grinders batter to pop up to Lloyd Sapanza at 1B to give the 11U-Elite team the Arizona Championship and the beautiful USSSA Championship Rings!
  • 11U Select Wins USSSA Riverside on Suicide Squeeze : 11U Select played Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde in Pool Play on Saturday after beating themselves in game 1 vs the Rampage, but then coming back and winning 19-0 in game 2 vs the Rockets. In Sunday's Playoffs, the Xtreme would get its revenge on the Rampage with a 12-4 mercy win. In the Championship Game, Xtreme was down 5-4 going into the bottom of the 6th, but a key hit by Jaylen Brewer tied the game 5-5. With Jaylen on 3rd, Coach Mike called for a suicide squeeze, that Robbie Harris executed to perfection allowing Jaylen to score the winning run and send the kids into a frenzy. The Xtreme boys went into a 2nd frenzy after learning they were receiving Championship Rings for their tournament victory. 
  • 10U Select Wins USSSA Huntington Beach Tournament : Due to vacations, injuries, timing conflicts, etc, the 10U Select team entered its tournament with 3 kids who had never played or even practiced with the Xtreme.

~ 11U-Elite Team Plays Up & Wins 12U USSSA Tournament
The 11U-Elite team is on quite a roll. Two weeks ago, the 11U Elite team became the 1st Xtreme Team to win an AAU Tournament. Now the 11U-Elite team accomplished another 1st for the Xtreme winning the 12U USSSA Gold Bracket Championship this past weekend. This was the first time the 11U team had entered an older division. In Pool Play on Saturday the 11U's lost their first game 3-2 in the bottom of the 6th. However, they bounced back with a big 8-7 win in their 2nd game, which was good enough for the 3rd Seed in the Gold Bracket. Then on Sunday, Lloyd Sapanza pitched a masterful game, shutting out the #2 Seed 12U So. Cal Hawgs, who are ranked #11 in USSSA So. California AA Division. In the Championship Game the 11U-Elite mercied the undefeated #1 seeded California Aces 16-6, who are also a highly ranked 12U team (#15 in 12U USSSA AA Power Rankings).

~ LA Xtreme 12U Cooperstown is seeking for Donations


There are 2 big tournaments for 12U year old ball players. The Little League World Series in Williamsport and the Cooperstown Tournament in New York. Those fortunate to make the World Series get their travel expenses reimbursed by Little League. Those fortunate to go to the Cooperstown Tournament need to do some serious fundraising in order to off-set their big travel expenses. The costs can be upwards of $2500/kid to go to Cooperstown and without donations, it would be impossible for most families to send their kid to this once in a lifetime event. The team now has a  Cooperstown Fundme.com Donations Page that is accepting donations (either anonymously or publicly). Whether it is $1, $5, $20, $50, $100 or more all donations are greatly appreciated.

The team nearly batted around twice and scored 10 runs to go on and defeat the San Pedro Pirates, who had won the MLK Super NIT Major Championship with all the top Major teams back in February. What was most impressive about the 11U teams big inning was it was done with only 1 walk, no errors, no infield singles and no bloop hits. The 10 run inning came off 4 San Pedro Pirate pitchers with line drive hits to the outfield. Arguably the biggest victory for the very successful 11U team. The victory propelled the 11U team into a Major's Ranked team.

In the second game Jonah Storey and Brian Dennis were able to hold the opponents to 4 runs, which allowed the lightning fast Irving Norwood and Myles Smith 1-2 combo to do their thing on the bases. The 2-0 record and only 5 runs allowed, gave the 11U team the #1 for Sunday's Playoffs. On Sunday, the bats were hot once again vs the Newport Bat Rays who had just won their first Playoff game with an 8-0 mercy win. Michael Mulligan's bomb off the Centerfield fence helped lead the team to a 12-4 mercy win advancing the team into the Championship Game against a tough Triple AAA opponent, who had 3 mercy wins of their own.

13U Tournament Summary:
The 13U team also did exceptionally well in their first tournament together. Despite missing two of their top players the Xtreme 13U's were able to go 1-1 on Saturday with a 14-9 win over Cali Xtreme in game one. In game two, the 13U's had the lead vs a tough Valley Thunder team, who were coming off a 10-2 mercy win, but the 13's couldn't keep the lead, giving up some late runs and eventually losing 3 to 7. The 1-1 record however, got the 13U into the Gold Bracket where they would face the 4th seed Desert Sandlot. The Xtreme team would come out victorious with a 6-1 win, advancing them into the semi-finals against the #1 seed Vegas Venoms. The Xtreme 13's battled the Venoms into extra innings, where they couldn't quite get that 1-run they needed and in the 8th with 2 outs and the bases loaded on a 3-2 count, the Vegas Venom's top hitter lined a shot just out of reach of the Xtreme outfielders glove, giving the Venom a 1-0 8 inning victory. It was quite a first tournament for the 13U team as the Vegas Venoms went on to win the tournament beating the Valley Thunder in the Championship. Meanwhile, the Cali Xtreme went on to win the Silver Bracket. 


Sept 24 : Xtreme Travel Ball Teams Opening Weekend : Despite Xtreme teams only having been together for 3 weeks, the 12U and 10U teams did incredibly well this past weekend in Huntington Beach. 

10U Travel Team Tournament Summary : In the 10U's first tournament game they went up against a Triple AAA team, Beach Baseball, that has been together for 3 years and had never lost to a Double AA team, that is until they played the Xtreme 10-year olds. In the teams very first game ever together, they beat Beach Baseball 7 to 5. Holden Schmidt pitched fantastic and kept the big bats at bay, which allowed the Xtreme to come back and win after being down early. Vinny Rakosky, Lloyd Sapanza and Deon Dizon made an exciting double play to end the threat.

In game two, the Xtreme battled back from a 9-4 deficit to tie their opponent 9-9. Dylan Beckerman's key hit tied the game in the top of the 6th. Deon Dizon, Nick Smulovitz, Connor Smith and Ryan Times also had key hits in that game to bring the team back. Lloyd Sapanza pitched out of a jam in the bottom of the 6th with the winning run on the 3rd and nobody out. The 10's finished its first day together without a loss earning them a 4 seed in Sunday's playoffs. Unfortunately, they drew Beach Baseball in the first playoff game and this time Beach got the best of the 10U team and knocked them out of the tournament. It was still a great showing going 1-1-1 in their first tournament, including a big win over a Triple AAA team in their very first game. 

12U Travel Team Tournament Summary : Unlike the 10U team that got a big win in their first game, the Xtreme 12's got mercied 10-2 by the HB Toros. The next game however the team turned it around and beat the HB Bombers 5-4, who had just destroyed their previous opponent 12-0. The team was led by the pitching of two 11-year olds Allen Blackwell and Jonah Storey. The defense was solid all game long with Wyatt Nelson making the defensive play of the tournament in Centerfield tracking down a ball in full sprint over his left shoulder. Another 11-year old Jake Wall crushed the Bombers pitching, while Max Aguirre started heating up his bat.

Sunday Playoff Game (#1) : Sunday's playoffs the 12's were seeded against their first opponent, the HB Toros, but now that the team was getting accustomed to playing together, they put on a show both on offense and defense. Starting pitcher Vincent Temesvary shut the door on the Toros, giving up only 1 run in 4 innings, while Vincent's bat was on fire going 4-4 with 2 home runs. Adrian Weinburg crushed the ball all day long and nearly hit for the cycle, while Scotty Melton collected 3 solid hits of his own, played a great catcher, all while battling a cold. Wyatt Nelson and Jaylin Collins made every defensive play at SS and 2B, while Irving Norwood roamed Centerfield and didn't let anything drop. Max Aguirre's big bat was alive once again while Allen Blackwell and Jonah Storey added key hits to the 12-1 revenge beating of the HB Toros.

Sunday Semi-Finals Game (#2) : In the team's next Playoff game, they faced the veteran Triple AAA Prospects team, who had been rolling over its opponents all tournament. The Prospects starting pitcher was the top pitcher in the tournament and kept the Xtreme bats in check all game long. Xtreme's Colin Wong pitched just as good and gave the team a solid 4 innings, only giving up 2 runs to the Prospects. Max Aguirre came in to pitch in the 5th and also held the Prospects bats in check giving up only 1 run. Yet with a 3-1 deficit in the top of the 6th, the Xtreme finally got to the Prospects starting pitcher. With the bases loaded and one out, Jaylin Collins nailed a shot over the right fielders head, clearing the bases. Jaylin was thrown out in a bang-bang play at home, but the 3 runs gave the Xtreme a 4-3 lead. Unfortunately, the Prospects were able to muster a run in the bottom of the 6th to tie the game and send it into extra innings. In the 7th, Max was able to stop the Prospects from scoring despite them having the bases loaded and only 1 out. Max was also helped by Irving Norwoods throw from CF stopping the winning run from scoring. The Xtreme couldn't however score in the top of the 8th and in the bottom of the 8th, the Prospects got a run and won one of the most exciting games many of the parents and coaches have ever been apart of. Despite the loss, the Xtreme 12's did phenomenal considering that this was their first tournament and nearly half their team consisted of 11-year olds as four of their top 12 year-olds were sick or unavailable. An absolutely amazing performance from the team as the kids and families really started creating a great bond together, which is what the Xtreme and baseball is all about!!!
