Big plays highlight La Jolla Youth Baseball action

Some might argue that Shetland is where the action is with a 12-way tie of perfect records and two grand slams every inning – guaranteed! You can’t call it tee-ball anymore because they are now using a pitching machine for the second half of the season and these 5- and 6-year-olds are really slugging the ball.

The “Player of the Week” is Mustang standout Michael Campagna Jr. with Cass Street. Michael hit two of his league-leading three home runs last week and closed out their win against Voices for Children with six strikeouts. Underdog Mission Imprintables handed Cass Street their only loss of the regular season in an exciting 9-8 game.

ESPN should be showing the “web gem” Top Play by Bronco player Jonathan O’Neal with Souza & Souza Construction. He made a diving catch in left field on a dead run that saved a few runs from scoring in their narrow 8-7 loss to Aladdin. Fans for both teams roared when he came up with the ball — and a mouthful of grass!
