L. Heredia Baseball League

Robert's Corner

What the heck .....

   Well that was one interesting weekend. We had some very good games and one blowout on this championship weekend. While we wait for the outcome of the Fontana/Heredia Championship, I think the majority of teams are now thinking about our next season. Eddie has said he is scheduling the first game of the new season December 7. This means that our next meeting December 3 all monies will be due.
 The weather this week forecasts rain for next weekend. I hope it doesn't effect the TOP bracket championships.
  I know I don't get too many chances to come see some of the Heredia League games but when I do I am pleased to see so many teams with their kids and family out at the fields. When I took the pictures for the Champions you can see all the kids of who hopefully will be our next generation of Heredia League players.

These are the interleague rules as I remember:
  Neither league will enforce the identical uniform rule.
Both leagues will have two umpires
The first two rounds will be single elimination.
The Championship series will be a 3 game series with a possible doubleheader for games 2 & 3.
Both leagues will have the choice of using the EH (Extra Hitter). The EH may NOT play any position during the game. If an EH hitter starts a game but leaves, his spot in the batting order will be called an out every time.

League rankings

Final

Wood Divisions

1. Dodgers .861
2. Oakland Athletics .855
3. Diamond Dawgs .757
4. Dorados .741
5. Phantoms .713

Aluminum Divisions

1. Modelos .881
2. LP Crooks .817
3. Costenos .794
4. Sea Dogs .698
5. Blue Crew .690


I did the final rankings so I could compare to the eventual champions. Now mind that the rankings here have NO influence from the playoffs. These stats are using only regular season stats. First thing I notice is the Dodgers are the top ranked team and yes they won it all. They faced Arroyo Seco who was ranked 8 out of 18 teams.
In the Aluminum divisions we have the Modelos as the top ranked team and yes they won it all. They faced the Calif Reds who were ranked 9 out of 21 teams.

The #3 ranked team was the Costenos and they took the lowest bracket. They faced the #16 out of 21 teams.

Kind of funny how that worked out.

Turkey Bowl

Thanksgiving tournament



UPDATE:   We finally were able to nail down some costs for our 2nd annual Thanksgiving Turkey Bowl. The fees ended up a little bit higher than what I wanted but everyone from the fields, T-shirts, and trophy costs were higher than last year. So the fees will be $150 for two games. We will play a game on Saturday and another on Sunday. Winners from Saturday will face each other on Sunday. Saturday's teams that lost will also face each other on Sunday.
  Winners will get at least 15 t-shirts and a trophy. Runner up team will also get 15 T-shirts. I have about 6 teams so far. As teams pay, I will be posting the schedules. If anyone has questions, please call me.

My Finals Picks

Robert's Champ Predictions

The TOP bracket is always one of the toughest divisions to predict. You never know which "new" players will show up but If I have to pick a team I guess its the Dorados. They have dominated the TOP bracket playoffs over the last 5 seasons. Trust me from what I hear, the IE Tigers are no joke. They have only lost one game all season. This should be a good series.
UPDATE:I had the Dorados winning this series and after Sunday I still have no reason to change my pick. The TOP Bracket championship will be decided next Sunday in Baldwin Park. Let's see what happens.

In the Middle Bracket, I think Arroyo Seco has a slight overall advantage while the Dodgers have a good offense too I just think they will come up just a hair short.
UPDATE:The Dodgers refuse to let my predication let them down. They used a strong pitching performance from Jesse Martinez who pitched a solid 7 1/3 innings and a strong offense to pounded out 12 hits. Jesse struck out 9 and gave up only 3 hits to lead the Dodgers to a 6-0 win.

In the Bottom Bracket, I think the Modelos will be able to sneak by the Calif Reds to take the title.
UPDATE:The Modelos didn't let me down. They defeated the tough Calif Reds 5-4. The Modelos scored a run with 2 outs in the bottom of the 9th. After giving up two quick outs the Modelos put together 3 hits the last one a bloop single to center to bring the Modelos their first ever Heredia championship.


 In the Lowest bracket, The Costenos should be able to defeat the Aces for the 4th time this season but I was told that the Aces finally got all their players back so they expect to give the Costenos one heck of a game.
UPDATE: The Costenos showed the Aces no mercy. They defeated the Aces 21-6. This has to be one of the most lopsided Championship games that I can remember in a long time if not ever.

Practice Games
