Erik VanWinkle wins the Dontrelle Willis Award

Erik VanWinkle, Joyce Harris and the Coaches
Erik VanWinkle is the 2011 Dontrelle Willis Award winner for the Alameda World Team.  As a leadoff hitter, infielder, and pitcher, Erik was all class on the field and off and was a great leader.

Dontrelle Willis, in his day, was a great player for the World Team and was a leader on and off the field too.

Joyce Harris, Dontrelle's mom, was at the season ending party and presented the award to Erik.

Congratulations to Erik for this very prestigious award!

Alameda World Team Loses to Korea

In the last game of the 30th Annual World Tournament the Alameda World Team lost to Korea 6 - 5.  Alameda scored 5 runs in the first two innings to lead 5 - 2.  But in the 6th inning Korea was able to score 4 runs to take the game.  Unfortunately the game only went 6 innings due to the 2 hour time limit.

Alameda ended the tournament with a 2 - 3 record and finished in 6th place.

However, Alameda won 5 and lost 4 in Japan over the two weeks it was there.

In the finals, the Japan National Team, beat Japan Kyushu in extra innings to bring the trophy back to Japan.

Fukuoka Wednesday

Great day today as we pummeled Fresno 14 – 2.  We were the home team and spotted Fresno 2 runs in the first, but then scored 14 straight to win in 4 innings.  Kaleo Johnson was great on the mound and at the plate.  Christian Leung smashed a 2 run homer and sent the game out of reach.
 
After the game we all went to a Mizuno store and the boys had a great time picking out baseball gear.
 
Tonight the team and everyone else went to a Pro Baseball Game courtesy of our host the Japan Boys Baseball League.  It was a great time and unique experience.
 
Tomorrow we play Korea for 5th place in the tournament.  Then we have the closing ceremonies.
 
At the Leaders Meeting it was decided that the 2012 World Tournament will be held in Australia about 80 miles north of Sydney.

Fukuoka Tuesday Games and Welcome Party

Bill DalPorto Welcome Party Speech
The Alameda World Team faced off with Japan’s National Team today and didn’t fare well losing 14 – 2.  Japan took control of the game early scoring 2 in the first with 2 outs and then 8 in the second inning.
 
Alamedahad lunch and got ready for their second game of the day against China.  Alameda dominated China 7 – 0 with great pitching, defense and timely hitting.
 
We ended up 3rd in our pool and will play Fresno at 9:00 am tomorrow.
 
Tonight was the Welcome Party with every team, coaches and parents and travelers in attendance.  There were a lot of speeches (including a nice speech in Japanese by our own Bill DalPorto), dinner and a Japanese drum exhibition.

Fukuoka Tournament Day 1

Bill DalPorto Throws Out the First Pitch!
We participated in the Opening Ceremonies and Bill DalPorto was honored with throwing out the first pitch of the Tournament.  We watched Japan crush China in 4 innings, had a lunch at the stadium provided by the Japan Boys Baseball League and then got ready for our game against Mexico Rojo.
 
Alamedawas the home team and we held Rojo scoreless for a few innings and we kept threatening but couldn’t get the big hit.  Rojo broke through for 4 runs in the fourth with hits all over the stadium and deep to the fences.
 
Rojo had a solo home run in the 6 to make it 5 – 0.  In the bottom of the 7th Alameda struck for 3 runs, but it was too little too late and we started the Tournament with a loss.
 
On Tuesday we play a doubleheader against Japan and China.  Everyone is in good spirits and we will play hard tomorrow.

Friendship Games in Kokura

Kocura and Alameda Players
The Alameda World Baseball team won both ends of a double header today.  The first team was made up of mostly all the home-stay players and we won 3 - 0.  They had a very crafty curve ball pitcher and it took until the 6th inning before we scored.  Mostly due to not having touched a baseball since last Sunday.

The host families supplied the players and families with a wonderful bento box lunch between games.  We were told that the 2nd team would be much more difficult to beat.  We scored 3 in the first and never looked back winning 8 - 0.  It was a warm day, but the boys held up well and are enjoying their home-stay experience.

We will play another doubleheader tomorrow.

Alumni Game Recap

Alumni and 2011 Alameda World Team
The Alumni Game was an amazing mix of old and new talent with plenty of big hits, great pitching and dazzling fielding plays.  The Alumni came from behind to win the game 11 - 10 in 7 innings.  Everyone had a great time and the BBQ after the game was fun also.  Thanks to everyone that put the day together.  A special thanks to Bill DalPorto and Ron Matthews for donating their time as umpires. 

We hope to have even more players next year and do the golf tournament the day before the game.
