Fresno and Alameda Teams

The past two weekends the Fresno World Team and Alameda World Team played a series of games against each other. Last weekend Alameda traveled to Fresno and played a doubleheader on Saturday at Clovis West High School and a single game on Sunday.  Fresno took both games on Saturday and Alameda won the get away game on Sunday.  The Fresno parents hosted the Alameda players in Fresno.

This weekend Fresno came to a much cooler Alameda for the same type series of games.  On Saturday at Stargell Field the Fresno team won the first game with the Alameda team coming from behind late in the game to win the second. On Sunday the Alameda team took this series by winning the game at Lincoln Park.  The Alameda parents hosted the Fresno boys this time around.

Both teams look very good and will now get ready to go to Hawaii for the Tournament.  In Hawaii the Fresno and Alameda teams will not play each other during the first part of the Tournament.

Alameda World Team Loses to Korea
by posted 08/17/2011
 

In the last game of the 30th Annual World Tournament the Alameda World Team lost to Korea 6 - 5.  Alameda scored 5 runs in the first two innings to lead 5 - 2.  But in the 6th inning Korea was able to score 4 runs to take the game.  Unfortunately the game only went 6 innings due to the 2 hour time limit.

Alameda ended the tournament with a 2 - 3 record and finished in 6th place.

However, Alameda won 5 and lost 4 in Japan over the two weeks it was there.

In the finals, the Japan National Team, beat Japan Kyushu in extra innings to bring the trophy back to Japan.

Fukuoka Wednesday
by posted 08/10/2011
 

Great day today as we pummeled Fresno 14 – 2.  We were the home team and spotted Fresno 2 runs in the first, but then scored 14 straight to win in 4 innings.  Kaleo Johnson was great on the mound and at the plate.  Christian Leung smashed a 2 run homer and sent the game out of reach.
 
After the game we all went to a Mizuno store and the boys had a great time picking out baseball gear.
 
Tonight the team and everyone else went to a Pro Baseball Game courtesy of our host the Japan Boys Baseball League.  It was a great time and unique experience.
 
Tomorrow we play Korea for 5th place in the tournament.  Then we have the closing ceremonies.
 
At the Leaders Meeting it was decided that the 2012 World Tournament will be held in Australia about 80 miles north of Sydney.

Fukuoka Tournament Day 1
by posted 08/08/2011
 

Bill DalPorto Throws Out the First Pitch!
We participated in the Opening Ceremonies and Bill DalPorto was honored with throwing out the first pitch of the Tournament.  We watched Japan crush China in 4 innings, had a lunch at the stadium provided by the Japan Boys Baseball League and then got ready for our game against Mexico Rojo.
 
Alamedawas the home team and we held Rojo scoreless for a few innings and we kept threatening but couldn’t get the big hit.  Rojo broke through for 4 runs in the fourth with hits all over the stadium and deep to the fences.
 
Rojo had a solo home run in the 6 to make it 5 – 0.  In the bottom of the 7th Alameda struck for 3 runs, but it was too little too late and we started the Tournament with a loss.
 
On Tuesday we play a doubleheader against Japan and China.  Everyone is in good spirits and we will play hard tomorrow.

Friendship Games in Kokura
by posted 08/05/2011
 

Kocura and Alameda Players
The Alameda World Baseball team won both ends of a double header today.  The first team was made up of mostly all the home-stay players and we won 3 - 0.  They had a very crafty curve ball pitcher and it took until the 6th inning before we scored.  Mostly due to not having touched a baseball since last Sunday.

The host families supplied the players and families with a wonderful bento box lunch between games.  We were told that the 2nd team would be much more difficult to beat.  We scored 3 in the first and never looked back winning 8 - 0.  It was a warm day, but the boys held up well and are enjoying their home-stay experience.

We will play another doubleheader tomorrow.

Trip to Fresno
by posted 07/24/2011
 
The Alameda World Tournament Team travelled 3 hours south to Fresno for a 3 game set against the Fresno World Team.  Alameda easily took the first game of the doubleheader on Saturday, but lost the second game of the day.  The players were sent off to their home-stay families and most everyone met up at one of the Fresno familie's beautiful home for a big party.

Sunday, the Alameda World team got back on the winning track with a hitting barrage that caused the game to actually end in the 5th inning.  The Fresno families put on a great BBQ after the game and the Alameda families and players headed home. 

A special thanks to the Alameda families that came down for the trip.  We had close to 50 people in the stands for the weekend!

Fresno World Team Weekend In Alameda
by Rich Krinks posted 07/10/2011
 
We had a great weekend taking 2 of 3 from the visiting Fresno World Team.  This was our first chance to see many of the players in action against competition since we have only had 2 practices.  The boys played great and will only get better as we gel as a team.  I want to take this opportunity to also thank the great support from the parents and families and friends of the players.  We had a great turnout at Lincoln Park both days.
 
Special thanks to the guys that helped do the fields along with the Plaisance’s in the scorer’s booth and Tom Tolbert.  Very special thanks to Lorrie Tolbert for the great work on the 50/50 raffle on a moments notice.  She helped us raise $270 for the team in about 30 minutes.  The parents and families did a great job with the side dishes as we had a very special spread for the Fresno people.  They were very impressed and some said that now the pressure was on them to do as good a job when we get to Fresno.
 
Thanks to Tim Marr and Joe Sherratt and the entire Board of Directors for putting together the BBQ.  The chicken was great and the trip tip wonderful.  Thanks to Theresa Cooper for getting the tri tip donated!  The Board really came through with more side dishes too.
 
Thanks to Bill DalPorto, Mark Clement and Ron Matthews for donating their umpiring and time.  We couldn’t have had 3 great games without your support.
 
Thanks again to the Alameda World Team families that home-stayed the Fresno players.  I heard all great things about the evening and I am sure that they will take good care of our boys in a few weeks in Fresno.
 
The raffle winners are listed below.

AWTB Plays Two Heartbreakers
by posted 08/08/2010
 
The Alameda World Team families home-stayed the Fresno players over night on Saturday after the doubleheader.   According to all the reports everyone had a great time!

Sunday morning Alameda took on Fresno for a third time looking for a sweep of the series, but came up short losing 3 - 2.  Anthony Olmo and Michael Perri pitched very well, but Fresno took the lead late.  Alameda had the bases loaded with no outs in the bottom of the seventh poised to at least tie the game, but came away with no runs and a loss.

After a great luncetime BBQ put on by the Board of Directors, the Alameda World Team took on the Australian World Team in a 7 inning game.  Australia had been to Fresno for a few friendship games and came to the Bay Area to do some sightseeing and play the Alameda World Team. 

Adam Rees was great on the mound and at the plate.  Alameda pulled ahead 5 - 3, but Australia got a run in the sixth to make it 5 - 4.  With a one run lead Drew Huie was in to close the game and got the first out.  The second batter reached on an error, but Huie picked him off first, however the ball was dropped at second on the tag.  Eventually, that runner scored the tying run.  A long fly for the apparent second out was hit to center, but the Alameda field lost it in the sun and the Austrailian on second scored to take the lead.  Alameda threatened in the bottom of the 7th when Trevor Toy lead off with a single and stole second.  However, he never made it home and Australia walked off with a win before they leave for Mexico and the World Tournament on Tuesday.

Alameda came out strong and took two convincing wins over the Fresno World Team at the College of Alameda.  Alameda won the first game 4 - 1 thanks to strong pitching from Geoff Ogata and timely hitting from Adam Rees and Andrew Pavao.

The Alameda team took the second game 8 - 4 with almost everyone contributing.  Dylan Holt pitched 5 stong innings and was relieved by Michael Perri for the last 2.  Byron Buckley smashed one to the right centerfield wall for a triple and trotted home on the over-throw for a run.

Alameda takes on Fresno for a third game on Sunday at 10 am at the College of Alameda.  Australia will play Alameda later in the day at 1:30.

AWTB Loses First Game in Gold Bracket Play

Alameda played Around the Horn, from Kalamazoo, Michigan in their first game of the double elimination portion of the tournament.  Geoff Ogata was on the mound for Alameda and he gave up a run in the top of the first.  ATH pitcher Sheppard was throwing very hard, but gave up a lead off double to Adam Rees.  However, Alameda couldn't get him home.  ATH struck for 2 runs in the 2nd, 2 in the 3rd and blew the game open in the 4th scoring 6 to lead 11 - 1 going into the 5th inning.  Alameda finally got their bats going and scored an amazing 9 runs on 7 hits in the 5th to trail by one.  The rightfielder for ATH was having a day having hit a home run his last time up and in the 6th hit a two run homer to put ATH up by 3.  Those runs were crucial as Alameda scored two times in the bottom of the inning to trail by 1 again.  Drew Huie struck out the side in the top of the 7th and Alameda was poised for a dramatic comeback.  With one out Alameda had the tying run on second and the winning run on first, but didn't get the job done and lost a crazy game 13 - 12.

AWTB Team Wins
by posted 07/27/2010
 
The Alameda World Team was led by the pitching and hitting of Dylan Holt as they beat the Diamonds of Grand Rapids, Michigan. Alameda needed to win this game to advance to the Gold Round of the playoffs and the Diamonds needed to win. Many of the teams in this tournament are baseball academy teams and the Diamonds were a very well coached team. However, Holt mowed them down on the mound and Alameda hit the ball hard today. To help his cause Holt hit a laser shot over the leftfield fence for a 2 run homer and Alameda led 3 - 0 in the third inning. More timely hitting by Byron Buckley, Geoff Ogata, Andrew Pavao, Drew Huie, Michael Perri and Holt pushed the lead to 8 - 1. Reece Kamphuis made a nice running catch early in the game in left, Perri made numerous plays at second and Adam Rees made a highlight play at short in the 7th with the Diamonds threatening. Alameda won 8 - 2 and will learn it's seed and position tonight for the double elimination portion of the Tournament.
