MTLL 10/11 All-Stars Help Mercury Insurance and San Diego Padres with Pre-July 4 Event for U.S. Troops
Mercury Insurance employees and the San Diego Padres got a jump start on the Independence Day holiday with the help of Mission Trails LLâ€™s 10/11 All-Stars (and families/friends) when volunteers from each organization teamed up to assemble 1,000 care packages for U.S. Marines and Sailors serving in Afghanistan.
After watching a great win by the Padres over the Reds, the goal of putting together 1,000 care packages was largely met due to the help of several MTLL 10/11 All-Star players, families, and friends. Some filled multiple bags at a time. Others spent extra time writing personal â€œThank Youâ€ÂÂ¯ messages to the troops that were included in each care package. Collectively, MTLL played a huge part in the success of what proved to be a tremendous event. To top it all off, San Diego Padre Pitcher Ian Kennedy showed up to help fill care packages and sign autographs. Ian even took a photo with our MTLL crew.
All involved agreed, this was an awesome event and a very rewarding experience for our MTLL families to give a little back to the troops.
Thank you Mercury Insurance and the San Diego Padres for allowing the MTLL community to assist in this effort. Very special thanks to Coach Chad Galvas for doing all the leg work in arranging MTLLâ€™s participation.
If you missed it, the MTLL Majors T.O.C. Championship game turned out to be an epic battle between the #2 seeded RED SOX and the #4 seeded ANGELS. After a couple of lead changes early, the ANGELS were looking strong with Andrew G. on the hill and the lead going into the 5th. Still, with Josh S. throwing 6 strong innings, the RED SOX managed to scrape hits together and tie it up late. Can you say extra innings? That’s right…on to the 7th. In the top of the 7th, the youngin' Trevor F. took the hill for the ANGELS having to face the heart of the RED SOXorder. After striking out two with the go ahead run at 3rd, the ball was finally put in play right back to the pitcher. Unfortunately for the ANGELS, the play wasn’t able to be made and the go ahead run crossed the plate for the RED SOX. Jevon B. came in to pitch and get the 3rd out, moving us on to the bottom of the 7th. With Blake M. now throwing for the Red Sox, the ANGELS managed to get a couple runners on base. However, with the tying and winning runs on 3rd and 2nd, the RED SOX were able to close the books with the 3rd and final out of the game. Congratulations to Gary Simpson and his Majors RED SOX. They earned the title of 2014 MTLL Majors T.O.C. Champions!
A well deserved THANK YOU as well to the RED SOX and ANGELS for entertaining us with such a well played and AWESOME finish to a tremendous Majors season!

2014 MTLL Minors T.O.C. Champions - PADRES (Ohton)
Congratulations to Manager Dave Ohton and his Minors PADRES team after earning the title of 2014 MTLL Minors T.O.C. Champions! The #2 seeded PADRES (Ohton) defeated the #1 seeded PADRES (Stearns) in a well played Championship game. PADRES (Ohton) took the early lead going up by 5 in the first. Defensively, Zach E. started on the hill for PADRES (Ohton), leaving the mound mid-game with zero runs allowed, followed by M.J. Still, with impressive starting pitching by Isaiah S., PADRES (Stearns) managed to claw their way back and tie it up. Still tied at 5, Luca F. took the mound for PADRES (Stearns) in the bottom of the 5th. This is when PADRES (Ohton) put together the clutch hits necessary to score 5 additional runs. In the top of the 6th, down by 5, PADRES (Stearns) managed to make some noise and put another run on the board. However, Braxton O. closed it out by striking out the final batter of the game and tournament. PADRES (Ohton) won the championship game by a final score of 6 to 10!
A giant THANK YOU to PADRES (Ohton) and PADRES (Stearns) for ending the 2014 Minors season with yet another exciting baseball matchup. Well played, well coached on both sides, and tremendously entertaining for the fans!
