by posted 01/08/2018

Alexander Hajda hit a double to score Seth Tedeschi in the bottom of the eighth inning, lifting the Dos Pueblos Little League 10-under All Stars to a dramatic 6-5 victory over Moorpark for the Section 1 Championship on Saturday in Nipomo.


The team advances to the State Championship in Palmdale, July 21.

Dos Pueblos was trailing in the fifth inning when Zach Gesswein slammed a two-out bases-loaded double to tie the score at 4-4. "This was a see-saw battle and the kids played their hearts out and never gave up," said DP manager Tom Demourkas.

"That was one of the best 10-year-old games I have ever seen," said DJ Gesswein, assistant coach. 

With the scored tied 5-5 in the second extra inning, Tedeschi doubled in the eighth and Hajda followed with his walk-off hit.

Derek Brunet started the game on the hill for DP, followed by Charlie Potter, Tedeschi and closer Shane Grant. 

Assistant coach Dr. Dan Brennan said the game was the most exciting he'd ever been a part of.

"I am so proud of our team and our league," Brennan said. "We are looking forward to representing District 63 and Section 1 in our quest to bring a state championship back to Goleta."

DPLL won the District 63 championship earlier this month. 

The DPLL 10U roster consists of: Zach Gesswein, Shane Grant, Andy Brennan, Brody Demourkas, Charlie Potter, Derek Brunet, Seth Tedeschi, Scott Nightingale, Liam Hurley, Alexander Hajda, Jacob Barsky, Taylor Nagy and Mateo Saldana.

Former DPLL Player Coffey Signs With Oral Roberts University

The latest Dos Pueblos Little League graduate to receive a college baseball scholarship is Isaac Coffey, star senior shortstop and pitcher at Dos Pueblos High School.
After graduation, he will move on to play with the Golden Eagles of Oral Roberts University, a long time Division 1 baseball powerhouse, having made it to the NCAA playoffs in 18 of the past 20 seasons
He will be the 4th of 4 brothers and first cousins to have played at DPLL and now playing college baseball.
Their names are on several of the district championship plaques on the backstops at the DPLL fields.
Brother Luke Coffey is a junior 3rd baseman at Westmont, first cousin Dustin Demeter is a sophomore shortstop at the University of Hawaii, and first cousin Davey Demeter is a freshman catcher/2nd baseman at Hancock.
Their dads, Joe Coffey, and Dave Demeter, coached the boys Little League teams, and their moms, Amy Coffey and Donna Coffey Demeter, served on our Board for many years.
When asked about their time at DPLL, the boys said:
  •  "DPLL was a great experience for me because it's where I started to love the game. Getting to play on my dad's team with my brothers and first cousins was a great experience and one that I won't forget. Without DPLL, I would not be where I am today and I am grateful that I had the opportunity to play there."
  • "DPLL was a terrific all around experience for me and I cherish the deep all star runs with my buddies. I'm glad I went to DPLL to play with my cousins and brother because I had some of the best memories of my life."
  • "It was competitive and I always felt the exciting pressure of not wanting to strike out against your buddy. All Stars were really fun, as  was being able to play up a level with my cousin Dustin and other guys."
There are a number of other former DPLL'ers currently starring at Dos Pueblos High and hopefully we'll have more of these to
report from time to time.
Isaac, and to all of you, we celebrate your success and wish you the best!
