Western Region Big League Baseball Tournament

2009 USA & Western Region Big League Baseball Champions

The 2009 USA & Western Region Big League Baseball Tournament Champions are
Southern California – District 13, Thousand Oaks

The Big League team from Thousand Oaks left Washington for the World Series in Easley South Carolina.  They continued their dominate play and only lost one game in pool play to the team from the Southwest out of Ruston, Louisiana.  The two teams played a rematch in the USA Championship and Thousand Oaks prevailed by a score of 5 to 2.

Thousand Oaks faced a very good team from Bravos de Pontezuela Little League in Santiago, Dominican Republic the next day in the Championship game.  Bravos de Pontezuela jumped on the scoreboard early and shutout Thousand Oaks to win the Championship.

The entire team from Thousand Oaks should be very proud of their accomplishments.  They proved to be great representatives of their league, their state, and their region.  All of us in the West congratulate them for their acheivements.

Southern California – District 13, Thousand Oaks

In a great match between two very good teams Thousand Oaks prevailed over Las Vegas by a score of 4 to 3.  Thousand Oaks now moves on to the World Series in Easley South Carolina.

Thousand Oaks was first on the board in the bottom of the 1st.  They added 3 more runs in the bottom of the 3rd inning.  Las Vegas never gave up and finally got on the scoreboard with a run in the top of the 5th.  Down 4 to 1 in their final at-bat in the 7th inning, Las Vegas scored twice and was threatening to tie the score as the third out was made.

The Las Vegas team played a fine game against a very good team from Thousand Oaks.  The West's representative will bring a team that has strong hitting throughout the lineup, excellent defense, and strong pitching to the World Series.  We expect great things from our team from the West.
