2018 Junior Thomas Tournament Re-Cap
Final Brackets: 2018 JTI Brackets
The 5th Annual Junior Thomas Invitational tournament was played April 26th through April 29th, 2018. Eight Junior division baseball teams from six different leagues participlated. Despite the fields being quite cold all weekend, and a few "glitches" the Junior's Thomas Tournament went great! All teams played well. Most runs were earned through great hitting. We saw some amazing leap catches and great team work plays.
A big "Thank you!" to Patriot, Serra Mesa, North Park and Murphy Canyon little leagues for hosting games; and thank you to our District 33 Umpiring crew from all the leagues who came out and made these games possible. Congratulations to the Sunshine Cardinals!

11th Annual Clay Berry Invitational Re-Cap

Final Brackets:
2018 CBI Brackets

The 11th Annual Clay Berry Invitational is in the record books. I would like to thank everyone who came out to watch a great weekend of baseball. It was a memorable weekend for the players and coaches. They had an opportunity to play on the same field as the West and North West Region All Star teams before going to Williamsport. The teams got the chance to create memories and enjoy the full experience by sleeping in the dorms, eating meals together with the other teams, and making new friendships that will last a lifetime.

Congratulations to the San Carlos Brewers for winning the tournament!! I would like to thank all the volunteers that helped to make the weekend enjoyable. The many umpires that came out from the different leagues. We also had District 55 send umpires. The San Carlos parents for organizing and staffing the snack bar. Parents enjoyed all the food!
