2018 All Star Championships
We had a very successful All Star Season this year and wanted to give you a summary.
Machine Pitch: The 2018 Chaires-Capitola Machine Pitch All-Stars went undefeated in the District 20 tournament. The team, Coached by Ken Powell, Scott LaFuria, Ken Cooksey and Eric Casto, closed out the tournament with a win over Northwest Leon by a score of 11 to 1. We would like to thank Northwest Leon for hosting a great tournament.
The team went to Shalimar to play in the first Machine Pitch Sectional tournament against Shalimar, the District 1 Machine Pitch Champions. Chaires finished as runner-ups but gained some great experience with tournament play. We are looking forward to watching these player develop in the coming years.
Minors: Fort Braden Little League hosted the Minors (9-10) District 20 All-Star tournament, which included representatives from Chaires, Northwest LL, Woodvile. The Minors All-Stars were coached by Manager Bill Garber, Assistants Chris Chavez, Zack Wetzel and Brian Garber. The Team swept the District 20 tournament to advance to the Sectional Tournament against Destin.
The Sectional tournament was played in Shalimar on July 7th-8th. Chaires won the tournament going 2-1 to advance to the State Tournament.
Although the team did not make it to the state title game, they represented the park at the state tournament like champions. Their bracket was made up of four teams and the top three, including Chaires, finished 2-1. It was only due to run differential that they were kept out of the state tournament championship game. They finish their All Star run with a 7-2 record.
They have earned their place in Chaires’ history as one of the league’s best teams.
Congratulations to all the coaches, players and parents on a job well done.
Majors: The Chaires-Capitola Little League 11-12 All-Stars swept the District 20 tournament. They advanced to the Sectional Tournament and faced a tough Niceville Valparaiso All Star team. Chaires took game two but lost the tournament with a very respectful 8 run differential.
The team was coached by manager Kasey Pressley and assistants Mike Runyan and Bob Steele. The team demonstrated a never quit attitude and made the league proud.
