Congratulations to the Lakeside Majors All Star Team on winning the California District 54 Championship!
Our Lakeside 12's concluded an amazing tournament run with one of the best youth games ever seen in any sport. The resilience, talent and sportsmanship on display by both sides was unbelievable, and we are honored to have this group of 12s, their parents and their coaches representing Lakeside Little League. We received an email late last night from the opposing Woodcreek coach congratulating Lakeside, thanking us for being such a classy team and league throughout the tournament, and wishing us well in the next round.
Woodcreek defeated Lakeside on Saturday in a hard fought 4-2 game which forced Sunday’s deciding game.
On Sunday Lakeside trailed 3-1 entering the top of the sixth inning. Lakeside scored 5 runs in the sixth on a solo homerun and a grand slam. But, after scoring a run in the bottom half, Woodcreek hit a two out, two strike 2-run homer to tie the game. Lakeside retired Woodcreek’s next batter and the game went to extra innings at 6-6.
In the seventh Lakeside’s bats went crazy scoring 7 runs on 7 hits, three of the hits coming via the long ball! Lakeside closed out the game in the bottom half for a 13-7 victory. Lakeside hit a total of six homeruns on Sunday.

Everyone is encouraged to come out and support our 12s! Winning the District is a huge deal, and they will face some stiff competition at Sections so your support will be appreciated.
Thanks, and congrats again to our Lakeside 12 Year Old All Stars!
