From May 31 to June 1, District 13 Little League’s baseball parks held their annual Tournament of Champions. There are five local little leagues that are involved in this competition, including Progress Village, Pinecrest, East Point, Belmont Heights and South Brandon. Each park holds a playoff tournament for their teams and the winner of their playoffs then goes to the Tournament of Champions to represent their park. This year’s tournament was hosted by Progress Village Little League and was single elimination.
This year’s winner for the Minor Division was the South Brandon Little League Padres, who played in the championship game on June 1, 2014, against Belmont Heights, winning 11-10. They were coached by Frank Burke, Jed Segrest and Lance McDaniels.
Additionally, this year’s winner for the Major Division was the South Brandon Little League Rays, who also played Belmont Heights in the championship game, winning their game 12-1. They were coached by Joe Gerena, Steve Lee and Cecil Woodside.
