Del Mar National Little League hosted this year’s District 31 Little League 9-10 and 10-11-year-olds All-Star Baseball tournaments, which ran from June 16 through the Championship games on July 3.
The District 31 communities, which include teams from Encinitas, Escondido, Carmel Mountain Ranch, Poway, 4S Ranch, Solana Beach, Rancho Bernardo and Valley Center, descended upon Carmel Valley to play and watch baseball in the gorgeous setting with family and friends.
Hosting was a monumental task that took a small army of wonderful people, including Del Mar National and American board members, Snack Shack committee members and many other terrific volunteers who spent countless hours preparing and maintaining the venue at Sage Canyon Park.
In the end, hundreds of baseball players, family and fans traveled to our great destination, and were treated to the best Little League baseball environment around.
Jeff Bernstein, president of DMNLL, expressed his excitement about this year’s tournament: “We have enjoyed hosting the tournament for the third time in the last four years. The atmosphere has been fantastic, and we are really proud to provide this opportunity for these wonderful kids. These memories will last a lifetime.
“A big congratulations goes out to the Encinitas Little League teams who won both of the age groups that we hosted, and congrats to the DMALL 10-11 team for making it to the Championship game.”
The ELL Champions will both move on to play in the Section 6 tournament.
DMNLL would also like to extend its gratitude to the city of San Diego Parks and Recreation Department for its continued support of our baseball community.
