Fortunately for the Davis American 9-10 All-Stars, they’re still at the age where fun and learning come first.

The locals gave it their all in a Little League District 64 tournament elimination game on Thursday at the Davis Little League Complex, but couldn’t overcome a powerful Dixon squad in a 16-0 mercy rule-shortened decision.

“They played as hard as they could. They just didn’t get the bats going and the other team did,” DALL manager Casey Shorts said afterward. “I was proud of them.”

Even if it was shorter than they wanted it to be, Shorts hopes the players remember the tournament run fondly and come away from it with a greater love and understanding of the game:

“Hopefully, they had a positive experience (and) learned something about a little bit more competitive baseball and kind of (got) a hunger for playing more,” he said. “Hopefully, they take away the fun of being in a more competitive environment and (don’t) remember that they got beat 16-0 in their last game.”

Dixon turned the contest into a home run fest, hitting two three-run blasts and a grand slam in five innings of play. Davis collected eight hits, but all were singles and none of the team’s runners were able to advance very far. Grafton Shorts and Brennan Peiffer each had two hits while Demetrius Hyder, Jack Chavira, Jordan Painter and Joby Antony added one apiece.

Shorts started on the mound for DALL and pitched two innings, striking out three batters and adding another highlight play when he sprinted from the mound and tagged out a runner attempting to advance from second to third.

He was relieved by Colby Mayer and Elliot Greve, who both gave strong efforts against the potent Dixon lineup.

Ty Soderquist, Colin Walsh, Robert Schacherbauer and Luke Murray all contributed throughout Davis’ tournament run, which included a win over Woodland American on Sunday.
