Mighty Trojans End Four Year Run

The Perfect Game World Series in Lakepoint, Georgia signified the end of an unbelievable run for the Lamorinda Trojans. The core team has been together for 4 years and had its culmination last year with winning the 12U travel ball National Championship in Yaphank, NY. The team went undefeated at the National Youth Baseball Championship (NYBC) with several exciting wins over outstanding players and teams. The Trojans 2016 season which includeded the fall ’15 games, finished with a 93-12-1 record. Of the 106 game season, 32 were played up in the 13u division with a 24-8 record. From the beginning of the spring season in February through the end of the season in July the Trojans were victors in every 12U tournament they played, losing only one pool play game along the way. In addition to NYBC the team captured tournament championships in the top events in the west including two Select Super NIT’s in Northern and Southern California and the USSSA International WS in SoCal. The 2016 Season finished with a team batting average of .414. Including 1,054 hits, 101 of which were home runs. The pitching staff had a whopping 635 strike outs recorded for the season.

The Trojans finished the year the nation’s number 1 ranked 12u team by the ranking services.

The boys will be moving on to the Lamorinda 14U & 16U Underclass Showcase teams under Coach Andy Tarpley.

We want to congratulate the players and their families for being a part of the marathon run of the Lamorinda Trojans team and wish the players’ success as they grind their way up the baseball ladder.

This team will always be remembered as the Lamorinda team with the greatest camaraderie among not only players but the families.

These were true friendships formed and it is very tough saying goodbye and moving on.

The Trojans will be remembered for their spectacular offense and clutch performances and likely as the team that went wire to wire over the 2016 season, never faltering.

The great coaching and parent camaraderie no doubt helped to make this team the best that they could be!

We expect to see many Trojans playing NCAA baseball and wish them all the very best along the way.
