Edition #9 March 15, 2023

Laguna Hills Little League

Unfortunately, this year is off to a soggy start. It kinda feels like we’re ready to play but Mother Nature is mad because we didn’t finish our homework. We do our best to squeak in practices and reschedule games as we try to play baseball. We want to thank all of you for your flexibility and help in getting your children to games and practice. 

Hopefully the weather will let up soon and it will be back to our regularly scheduled programing. But for now, here are some recaps from the games that we were able to play… enjoy!


Selected Game Recaps

*We don’t play favorites. If you want your team featured please send pictures, videos and a few words to and we’ll try to feature everyone!

The Majors Dodgers get off to a hot start

Nate Gasca has been pitching lights out for the dodgers. In his first outing of the season, he took a two hitter into the sixth inning. Max Mihai had 2 RBIs and the rest of the team did what they had to do to secure a 8-2 victory. 

The second game of the season was a hard fought battle and Robbie Romer (shown here) crushed a timely double to the opposite field. Unfortunately, their comeback fell short as they took their first L for the season. We are optimistic about this Majors team as they are showing great promise!

AAA Angels 6, AAA Red Sox 5

The AAA Red Sox squared off against the AAA Angels in an epic opening day matchup that ended with the Angels walking it off in extra innings for the 6-5 win.

Luke Riddle produced the game winning RBI, driving in Aiden Sipkovich for the win.  Maddox Fitzpatrick started for the Angels, pitching 4 innings with 5 Ks, while Henry Stevens closed out the game with 3 innings and 7 Ks of his own.  Stevens also had a 2 RBI double.  Nico Stavros (pictured) paced the team with 2 hits and scored 2 runs.  

Meanwhile, the Red Sox were anchored by great pitching from James Pitt and Wyatt Cobb, who combined for 5 strikeouts, giving up only 3 runs over 4 innings. Leo Gonzalez and Alex Tsujiuchi also pitched well for the Red Sox, with Tsujiuchi stepping in to get out of a bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the 6th. Red Sox defense was solid all-round, led by Pitt’s miraculous 4th-inning grab in center field. Landon Chen led the Red Sox offense with 2 hits and an RBI, while Cobb, Pitt, Gonzalez, and Darren Chen all added hits. Anthony Kamae received the Red Sox game ball for his toughness and great attitude.


AAA Dodgers 11, LF Bombers 1

Xavier LaSala opened the season with a near perfect three innings to get the the Dodgers started.  The Dodgers offense relied on fantastic hitting performances form Daniel Macmillan, who had three hits, and Jackson Fliegler, whose opposite field bomb bounced to the fence.  Adam Mandel laid down one of the smoothest drag bunts you will see by any ten year old, and Cohen Sanchez made a miraculous throw from center to nail a runner at third. All and all, it was a great opening team win with contributions from all.

AA Angels get the W

In their first big win of the season, the AA Angels had a strong offensive showing. In the top of the 4th inning, three of the Angels players, Logan Champlin, Ayden Zeffer, and Theo Mihai, hit three consecutive inside the park home runs. Theo Mihai was player of the game, pitching two (2) shutout innings and going 3 for 3 at the plate. Way to go Halos!!!

LF Iron Eagles 10, AA Braves 7

The AA Braves put together some great at-bats, like Isaiah Webster’s hit deep to left center which brought home 2 runners (see above).

In the end, strong pitching from the LF Iron Eagles gave them the 10-7 win

AA Dodgers with the big bats

Jackson Parker tattooed a pitch with the bases loaded for a Grand Slam in the AA Dodgers game! 

AA A's came up just short

Nico Gonzales continues to impress as the A’s lost a close one on Sunday. They say it’s a game of inches and they couldn’t be more right as River Ashworth barely missed an extra base hit as his bomb curved just foul and changed the outcome of the game. 

Matt Hawksford and the rest of the A Red Sox have been mashing balls left and right. The future looks bright in Laguna Hills!

Nathan Manista and the Single A Padres are looking good in their first two games. Tons of big hits and super plays in the field!

The Rookie Brewers brought the heat on this cloudy day. Good hustling, big hits, and great stops! Lots of teamwork this week by throwing and fielding together. Matteo DiGiuseppe won the game ball. He kept his concentration up with hitting and his mitt low while playing catcher. He had some great stops and focused throws. 

Focus and determination makes for good ball players. The A Angels know this as well as any team and have been practicing their tails off!

The TBall Dodgers – a gritty bunch!

Gotta love this aggressive style of baseball these kids play today.
