TVBR 14YO All-Stars are Back-to-Back World Series Champions!
by posted 08/19/2016

The Tri-Valley Babe Ruth, 14 year-old All-Stars, finished their perfect summer of baseball by winning the World Series in Westfield, Massachusetts on August 18th.  The dramatic, come from behind, 9-6 victory over Bismarck, North Dakota made for an undefeated 15-0 record and is a second consecutive World Series Championship for the boys from Danville, Pleasanton, and San Ramon. 


After winning the Northern California State tournament in mid July and the Pacific Southwest Regional Tournament in late July, the 14 players and 3 coaches flew to Massachusetts on August 9th to take on eleven other regional winners for the Babe Ruth national title.  The grinding, week long tournament, in a triple digit heat index, started with twelve teams, playing five pool play games each, to determine six teams that would advance to single elimination bracket play.    In pool play, Tri-Valley beat:  Sarasota, Florida 2-0, Tri County, Maine 18-3, Atlantic Shores, New Jersey 10-0, Pittsfield, Massachusetts 13-1, and Arlington, Massachusetts 18-3. 


The 5-0 record earned Tri-Valley the number one seed in the National Division and a day off, one of only eight non-baseball days all summer. With Westfield, MA being only two hours from Boston, the team and parents took in some sites: touring Fenway Park, the Freedom Trail and other historic landmarks while their friends at home began school due to the newly established, earlier start date.


Tri-Valley was back on the diamond Wednesday night in the semi-final against Tri County, Maine (a rematch of last year’s 13 year-old championship game).  The scrappy Mainers gave TVBR a fight for the first five innings, but the scoreboard read 9-3 in favor of Tri-Valley when the final out was recorded.  Bismarck, North Dakota defeated Atlantic Shores, New Jersey in the other semi-final game


Billy Bullens Field proved to be a great venue for championship night:  A beautiful Massachusetts sky, an Olympic silver medalist threw out the first pitch, a local pilot produced and unexpected flyer over, and both teams came ready to play ball.   Nearly one thousand fans in attendance and hundreds more watching live on webcast saw a gripping, seesaw, battle as Tri-Valley jumped on top early twice, only to have Bismarck answer their punch both times.  Then, North Dakota took control and seemed to be on their way to the title with a three run lead and a mere five defensive outs to play.  However, with one out in the bottom of the sixth, the resilient Tri-Valley club started a surge that didn’t end until they had reversed the score differential (from down 3 to up 3) giving Tri-Valley a 9-6 lead heading into the top of the 7th inning.  Four batters later, the Tri-Valley teenagers launched their gloves and hats into the air and their bodies onto each other in an exhaustive but jubilant dog-pile celebration.


Tri-Valley finished the World Series with a 7-0 record (tying a 14 year old Babe Ruth WS record) while outscoring their opponents 79-16 along the way.  Left Fielder, Michael O’Hara earned the tournament’s two highest awards: Most Outstanding Hitter and Most Outstanding Player. Jack Grant was named All World Series Team (SS) and Michael O’Hara was named All World Series Team (LF).   Joey Battilega and Tommy Gavello earned Rawlings Gold-Glove awards as well.


This record setting Tri-Valley Babe Ruth team includes players from five local high schools.  Amador Valley:  Demetre Aaron (OF), Joey Battilega (OF/P), Trevor Jackson (C, Util), Troy Nassar (P), Luke Palfalvi (OF), Jaden Sheppard (P, 1B).  Foothill:  Josh Anderson (P/1B), Max Masajlo (OF/P),  Cory Steinhauer (C, Util)  California:   Asher Golden (3B/P)  San Ramon Valley:  Evan Chevaliar (P), Jack Grant (SS), Michael O’Hara (LF, Util) Monte Vista:  Tommy Gavello (2B)  Manager:  David Grant  Coaches:  Tony Battilega, Mike O’Hara, Mark Palfalvi.
