2021 DDM Brackets

The 11th Annual Dorothy Dupont Memorial Tournament is officially in the books.  We had a wonderful four days of baseball, with each team playing three games.  This tournament would not have happened without the help of its many volunteers.  Stephen Angell, President of Murphy Canyon Little League and his Board was at the field to make sure the field was ready for the teams to play on and the snack bar was open and ready to serve the hungry fans.  Several of which were heard commenting on the awesome pretzels they sell, which even sold out one day. 

 

Mark Beall, District UIC, has come through for us yet again, he made sure we had four umpires at every game!  That is covering 12 games with 48 umpire spots to fill.  A four man umpiring crew was invited from West Hills.  Getting enough umpires was not an easy task. 

 

Sunday was full of surprises.  First off a heartfelt welcome home to Mike Stepan, who returned home after serving a nine month tour to watch his son's game. 

Aaron Sheppard, Safety Officer from Murphy Canyon, coordinated with Stephen, MCLL President, to have the Navy Color Guard present the colors on the field for the National Anthem to start the Championship Game.  

Congratulations to the Allied Gardens White Sox on winning the tournament!! The Championship Game was an exciting way to wrap up the weekend.  The AG White Sox captured the flag by outscoring the LM Blue Jays 9-4.

 

These mid-season tournaments that the District coordinates are not just for the players to get ready for the postseason, it also helps the managers and coaches know what to expect, what rules and guidelines to follow.  The tournaments also help prepare the scorekeepers, in showing the importance of making sure every change is documented in the scorebook.  These tournaments would not be possible without the all around support from everyone, for that we say thank you.
