The Daily Courier

The Prescott Valley 11-12 Little League All-star team defeated Sedona, 13-3, Tuesday night in the second round of the District 10 tournament at Riverfront Park in Cottonwood.

Prescott Valley starter Brian Ellis pitched two scoreless innings. Travis Robinson relived Ellis in the third and pitched 1 2/3 innings. Joel Peraza closed out the game, recording the final out of the run-ruled contest.

Prescott Valley scored early and often, as the team worked together to produce good hitting and base running.

Jake Morales led PV from the plate, hitting an out-of-the-park solo home run. Zech Romney added an inside-the-park homer.

Prescott Valley defeated Williams on Monday night by a score of 6-2. Tuesday night's victory gives the team a 2-0 record in the double-elimination tournament. Prescott Valley will play Prescott North at 8 p.m. Thursday night at Riverfront Park in Cottonwood.

Prescott North 24, Dewey-Humboldt 0

The Prescott North 11-12 Little League All-Star team beat Dewey-Humboldt, 24-0, in the second round of the District 10 tournament Tuesday night in a run-ruled affair that was stopped in the third inning in Cottonwood.

Prescott North scored 14 runs in the first inning, one in the second and nine in the third. It was a total team effort from the plate that was sparked by a Cole Kelley 3-run blast in the opening frame.

Wyatt Seets struck out the side in the first inning before being relived by Braden Lopez, who pitched the final inning for Prescott North. Lopez had two strikeouts.

Next up, Prescott North plays Prescott Valley in the third round of the tournament Thursday at 8 p.m.

Prescott 19, Bagdad 10

The Prescott Juniors 13-14 All-Stars defeated Bagdad, 19-10, Tuesday night in the opening round of the District 10 tournament at Prescott High School.

Prescott trailed 7-4 after two innings, but held Bagdad to just two runs the rest of the way.

Six Prescott pitchers helped earn the win. Carl Wilson, Troy Waller, Andre Uncapler, Louis Sheppard, Justin Warren and Logan Carmick all had solid performances on the mound. Warren was especially good. He pitched two innings and struck out the side in one, while giving up only one hit.

Uncapler was 3 for 6 from the plate, while Casey Anthoney went 3 for 4. Warren finished 3 for 5.

Prescott plays Camp Verde in the second round at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at PHS.

Article comment by: Makes You Think

Lately it has not been "just about the kids" and more about how some people can supplement their income. We as parents have the right to know where ALL of the money is going from sponsorships and registration fees. It better not being going to filling up personal board members vehicles with gas, paying for lunch for board members and even some utilities as recently rumored by some parents.

Why is the PVLL Board refusing to show bank statements of the league??? What are you trying to hide???

Reading all this, I am so thankful that Richard and Tiffany got me kicked off the PVLL Board and from coaching... As they say "its about the kids"... right??

I say TIM or Carey for PVLL President!

I think Tim meant to say the UA dream was his when he was younger and that didn't work out so now he needs to live through his children like all of us crazy parents.

I believe it is child abuse to let your kids "dream" about playing for the U of A. This should be investigated immediately and if possible nipped in the bud. Go Devils!

Just got a text from a friend about all these comments. I now have water all over my computer screen as I spit it out in dismay. I thought Tim you have your head on straight and realized that living where we live that there is not much competition here. You know Phoenix rules in the talent and there are MANY girls out there who practice YEAR round that are damn good players. Not sure I've seen a damn good player in this area in a really long time. Decent players, yes, but there is no "damn good players" in the Quad Cities.

Yes, they are going to state.

Article comment by: Who is on the board

At least PV little league website shows the board members and meeting dates. Who is on the board for Prescott LL? No clue as their website provides NO information. Website maintenance and information is a must. Who are we sending our money to? Who is making all the decisions for our children?

Article comment by: 3 really good points

1. Since the start of UA softball, there has not been one player from the tri-cities on their roster. Same goes for ASU. 2. When a parent starts talking big about their child, I tune them out. Let the kid show their stuff on the field. I don't need to listen to a parent's version. 3. Lastly, are they going to state or not? No.

FYI: It's ridiculous, not rediculous and surname = one's last name.

Other than that I agree: your son and daughter are pretty decent ballplayers and too many petty adults are lobbing insults left and right just because they can hide behind pseudonyms.

Go Girls, Go Boys, GO PVLL!!

The problem with your "fill out a volunteer application" solution is that the PV LL Board is very closed - they don't particularly want any new people or ideas.

I'm not making any spurious claims about fiscal mismanagement, but do know that the PV LL can certainly improve the way they run things.

This league is for ALL the kids from T-Ball on up. It's for the girls and the boys. It's for those kids who will never play past age 11 as well as those with real talent and drive.

It's for the KIDS. Let's keep that in the forefront please....

I am really curious where all this talk is coming from. I will put my name out there because it is the right thing to do. I was a coach this year for girls minor softball and it was the most rewarding time that I have spent in quite awhile. I know both the coaches in question with the Girls Major softball team and I can say that there is no embezzlement going on. I have participated in some of the fund raising and all the money earned is being put toward the tournament and the parents are getting a good part of this to help cover their expenses. Both these coaches are very hard working volunteers and have put a lot of there own money and time into the PVLL. As a coach this year myself I had to leave my employment early on several occasions to be there for practices and games. I had no problem with this because like I said earlier it was a wonderful experience. During a long season as this turned out to be sometimes family obligations arise and coaches have to make tough decisions. In this case both coaches wanted the girls to experience the State Tournament and have worked a lot of countless hours to make this happen. I just want to take this time to thank Carey and Brandon for all they have done with this team. For those of you who think that coaches have different agenda's I have a simple solution for you. Its a wonderful form called "volunteer application" it is easy to fill out and only takes a few minutes. I cannot wait for next year because the girls that I coached this past year made me feel so proud. The joy and excitement at learning this great game that they showed through all there smiles really touched me. Good Luck girls in the State Tournament! You have already made this coach and parent very proud.

Everybody is rediculous and needs to step back and look at what's going on. Anyone can post comments under a surname and judge and point fingers. Those who have legitimate problems and concerns can face them in person and not hide behind an unfounded comment. For the record, my daughter plays every sport she is in with passion. It is her dream to play softball for UA. It is rediculous to think she has a scholarship to a D1 school at age 12. And she is a damn good softball player.

For those of you who are interested or have any questions as to where the money is being spent in regards to the Prescott Valley Little League there is a meeting scheduled for July 10th at the Prescott Valley Civic Center at 7:00 P.M. Hopefully the PVLL board can explain why they have not released requested bank

Adults acting like children. Blame games. Whining. Finger pointing. Pouting. Gloating.

Little League: Where kids learn the truth about childish adults really are.

Sign up early for next year!! Wheee!!!

Article comment by: No such thing as club here

There is no such thing as a real club team here in this area for softball (or baseball for that matter). The coach's kid is playing for a rec ball "club" team and I've heard her say the daughter will be going to UA on a scholarship. This coach is a typical "my child is a star" parent. If she wants a real club experience, drive 2 hours to Phoenix.

Article comment by: Concerned Coach

Yes thank you we wouldn't want to leave anything out. The head coach is taking her mothers ashes to Hawaii. Before her mother past this February she asked her to do this. I'm glad that we didn't leave anything out. Thank you.

Article comment by: Concerned Coach

I think that everyone has lost sight on what is important here. "the kids!!". The girls won and because of one thing and another, they really can't be happy because of the adults behaviors. For some reason we thought because in the past a team was able to get help going to state we would. No one took in consideration that that was the last time a team was helped. No big deal fundraising was done. We really all need to let that go, so the girls can be champions and not have to hear what a controversy their win was. Yes unfortunatly what ever the reason be the girls might not get to play now is true. We only had nine girls one was not able to go, but when we heard that out banner would be given to the team we beat, now we have all nine girls. Hopefully this works out and we can just go play. Please stop all the bad comments and arguing it really isn't what it's suppose to be about. Thanks.

I heard the head coach was leaving early anyways.......

Article comment by: certain coach

Before you people come to conclusions maybe you should get all the facts. It was not decided that travel ball came before all stars, if that was the case I would not even be involved with little league. It was finances. Don't you people have anything else better to do than to bag on volunteers anyway.

Article comment by: to: where's the money

Girls softball may not be going because a certain coach decided travel ball was more important than competing in LL All-Stars.

Let's not make it a boys v girls issue.

PVLL shouldn't be expected to foot the bill for All-Stars, but it would make sense to have some kind of All-Stars fund to either help defray at least some of the cost or "scholarship" some of the less fortunate families that simply cannot afford a week of hotel rooms/gas/food.

Good luck to all the kids, girls or boys. Go and represent District 10 the best you can and have fun!! Don't the drama of adults keep you from enjoying these experiences.

Article comment by: to: Wheres the Money?

What money are you asking for specifically? When I made All Stars and went to state in the 70's, my family paid for the travel expenses and food and hotel. When my son made it to state in All Stars several years ago, WE PAID THE ROOM COST, FOOD AND GAS TO GET HIM THERE! Do you think that because your child made it to state that the PV Little League is giving you an all expenses paid vacation? Do you realize the cost to pay for up to 6 teams worth of families for a week at state? Little League does not pay you or your child to play in a state event. Get Real!

Article comment by: PV is on a roll

PV is just doing so well in both softball and baseball. They will take the district, I predict for 11-12's. However, they will not go far in state. It's impossible to play no one of good caliber in their district and then see what it's really like at State and get by. Phoenix and Tucson teams have some really good teams, with most of the All Star kids playing club ball in addition to Little League. Not the case here in the Quad cities.

Article comment by: Where's the Money?

Congrats to the PV teams for doing so well. I have a niece that plays on the girls softball allstar team. Unfortunatly it doesn't sound like they are going to be able to go to state because the league does not have money to send them. What about the 10-11 year old boys,Are they not going to be able to go either? And what if the 11-12 year old team makes it? It won't look good for Prescott Valley Little League if all or a large # of these teams make it to state and then can't show up to play.Or, is it a case of "We can't send the girls cause we have to save what money we do have to send the boys.",I would hope this to not be true but I have seen in other instances where the boys sports took presidence over girls. The girls work just as hard to get where they are, it's not fair to then tell them they're not important enough to keep going. What kind of example would that be setting. Again, I hope this is not the case in preventing them from going to state.
Why is there no/or not enough money left from the PVLL? Where's the sponsor money,the league fees paid by parents?Do they not plan for this? Or is there some other reason? Laundering,possibly? And I'm not talking expenses from cleaning jerseys. I mean,God for bid, similar acts that went on in D-H.
These are all valid ?'s PVLL should be able to answer and justify if monetary donations are being requested of the community. Where's the money,PVLL?

Once again, great job PV. The future of Bradshaw is bright. In the last little league roundup, the Prescott little league last place coach was being referenced as being in last yet still getting to coach All-Stars. Strange to me. Again, glad mine is going to Bradshaw where sports are taken seriously. And yes, these may be kids, but the kids love sports and will be the future of sports.
