Centerville American Little League (CALL) won the Major Tournament of Champions crown on June 15 by defeating its cross-town rivals, Centerville National Little League (CNLL) 5-3. The District 14 championship turned into a real battle as CNLL scored three runs in the second inning on two infield hits and a fielder's choice. CALL answered in the bottom of the fourth inning with bases-loaded doubles to lead 4-3. In the bottom of the fifth inning, CNLL put runners on base, but couldn't capitalize as CALL was up to the task using good pitching and defense. With a strong finish, Centerville American holds the title to the 2013 California District 14 Major Tournament of Champions.
