Nine Davis Little League teams gear up for D64 tournaments

From page B1 | June 19, 2013 |

* Editor’s note: This is the first in a three-part series featuring the nine District 64 summer tournament teams representing Davis Little League. Today we look at which teams play where … and when.

It’s that time again and six squads — three each from National and American divisions featuring players 12 years old and under — are about to carry the Davis banner into postseason play.

From Vacaville to Woodland and home to the DLL complex, more than 70 local kids and their coaches will extend their successful regular seasons.

Beginning Saturday in Davis, 10 teams gather to chase the 9-10 banner. The festivities kick off with Davis National meeting Vacaville National at 10 a.m. on the West Field. On Sunday, Davis American opens play with a 10 a.m. outing against Woodland American (10 a.m. on the East Field).

Other Saturday games include Vacaville Central and Dixon (10 a.m.) and Rio Vista and Vacaville National (1 p.m.). On Sunday, the winner of Vaca Central/Dixon meets Esparto at 1 p.m., the Davis National/Vaca American winner plays Winters (10 a.m.) and the Vaca National/Rio Vista survivor gets Woodland National (1 p.m.).

All District 64 tournaments are double-elimination and the 9-10 games could run through Sunday, June 29, if two games are needed to decide a champion.

In the 10-11 brackets, play gets underway next Wednesday as Davis National meets Dixon at Camarena Park (Beamer Street) in Woodland. Game time is 5 p.m. Davis American and Woodland National play next at 8 p.m.

The seven-team tournament goes through July 1 (July 2, if necessary).

The 11-12 all-star event will be hosted by Vacaville Central at Centennial Park (Browns Valley Parkway).

Competition begins Saturday, June 29, when Davis National meets Dixon at 10 a.m. On Sunday, Davis American plays the winner of Woodland National and Vacaville Central at 10 a.m.

That 10-team tournament — the first step toward Williamsport, Pa., for the older guys — goes until a champion is crowned on either July 6 or 7.

In the Junior division, for 13- and 14-year-olds, the two Davis squads will meet in the first round on Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. at the Winters High junior varsity field. The winner advances to a 5:30 p.m. date with Winters next Wednesday and the loser heads to the elimination bracket contest against either Vacaville Central or American.

That tournament goes to June 30 (July 1, if necessary) and is played at Winters High and Keating and Arlington parks (both in Vacaville). The finals are at Keating.

The so-called 50-70 Little League playoffs begin this week with District 1 tourney play to start June 30 in the Concord area, although a specific site has not been chosen. The new division is open to players 11 to 13 years of age and plays baseball with 50 feet from rubber to home plate and 70-foot basepaths.

In District 64, since there were no organized 50-70 teams, it was suggested by Davis officials — and approved by D-64 officers — that the Wolfpack travel-ball team (coached by Tyler Gibson) be anointed the district champion and represent local leagues in the District 1 tournament.

Notes: Thursday’s installment features a closer look at the six Davis teams of players 12 years old and under. On Friday, the 50-70 squad and junior teams are spotlighted.
