Fourth of July comes early for MSJLL Major All-Stars
Submitted By Ed Hugo
The Fourth of July may be a week away but the Mission San Jose Little League Major all stars filled the air with their own brand of fireworks as they smashed nine home runs en route to a 31-1 victory over the Centerville American all-stars in the opening round of the District 14 All Stars Tournament Saturday, June 25.
Mark Gaffey led the home run barrage as he homered in each of his first four at bats - with two of the home runs coming in the first inning. Gaffey concluded his big day at the plate with a double that came within a few feet of being his fifth home run of the day. Mike Pyle also had a big day at the plate as he pounded the ball for two home runs, two doubles and a single. Kevin Zhangzou also hit two home runs and Kyle Dean roped a long round tripper as one of his four hits. Brett Hansen started on the hill for MSJLL and pitched well with Dean finishing up the game on the mound as the two combined to allow only one run.
