Led by Coach Daryl, the awesome A’s battle the Los Gatos Pirates. Loads of fun ensues for all involved.
Nice article and picture about the 1962 team from the Williamsport Sun Gazette.
The Campbell Patch has a great summary of some of the successes of “Campbell” baseball through the years. Campbell baseball, as defined by Chuck Hildebrand, include the Moreland Little League of West San Jose. This article from the Campbell Patch provides an outline of Hildebrand’s book:
His book is more than baseball; it is a brief history of the transformation of our area from a post-war, working class agricultural community to the high-tech mecca known as Silicon Valley.
The book also features profiles on a number of people who are familiar fixtures at Moreland Little League.
See if you can identify one of those people from the 1979 Campbell team who has been a great mentor to our kids:
NBC Bay Area 11 spent the evening with 1962, Moreland Little League 1st baseman, Phil Kagel, watching the 2012 Petaluma game, as chronicled in this video. This was just before Phil’s departure to meet many of his teammates in Williamsport to watch the 2012 LLWS.

Great summary of final TOC games for 2012 MLL Brewers and White Sox.
In a hard-fought game, the MLL Major White Sox prevailed over a Sunnyvale Metro Phillies team that wouldn’t quit as the final run was decided with two outs in the bottom of the 6th inning. Pitching carried the White Sox, as Anthony Escobar started, gave up no runs and worked his way out of a bases loaded jam in the 1st and and struck out the side in the second. Chase Broberg and Justin Johnson carried on for Escobar and closed out the game. White Sox pitchers combined for 11 strike outs.
The White Sox struck first with a scoring drive led by a hit to third by Escobar, followed by a base hit by Jake Amicarelli. Melissa Drews took first after being hit with a ball to the thigh. Escobar was forced out at home, but Jake Amicarelli scored on a passed ball to Mathew Miyada. Miyada walked, loading the bases for Justin Johnson who hit a double to the left center fence, giving the White Sox 3 runs. Johnson was the hitting star for the White Sox going three for three.
The Phillies tied it in the 6th. In the bottom half of the 6th, Dylan Ellis hit a sharp line drive to third base to start the inning. Two outs and a stolen base later, Matthew Miyada hustles to first on a hit between first and second. Matthew Kennedy scores the go ahead run from second on a close tag play at the plate. Final, White Sox 4, Phillies 3.
