The Del Mar Little League Majors Diamondbacks team claimed victory in their Tournament Championship on Thursday, May 27, with a 5-1 win over the Majors Padres in the finals. On the mound for the Diamondbacks, Palmer Donnelley started and pitched 2 innings of 1-run baseball, before handing the ball to Elias Hanley who pitched the final 4 innings in a shutout, allowing just 2 hits, 0 walks, with 4 strikeouts.

At the plate, Elias Hanley led the Diamondbacks going 2-for-2 with an RBI, while Josh W., Palmer D., Noah G., and Charlie F. each contributed with a hit as well. The boys were ecstatic as they received their championship rings. Team Manager and Head Coach Randy Hanley remarked, “During the game, I realized with my son aging out of Little League, this was in all likelihood the last baseball game I would ever manage/coach. Not many can say they ended their coaching career with a championship!”
