SPORTS: Memorial Day win for 'PTown Giants'

The Pleasanton Giants 16U, made up of Amador and Foothill high school kids, went 4-1 to take the first place trophy at the USSSA Memorial Tourney at PAL Stadium in San Jose.

The "PTown Giants" beat the Aptos Sharks 6-1 in the final and the California Bulldogs 10-2 in the semifinal.

Daniel Kuhfal and AJ Curtis were named co-MVPs of the tournament. Kuhfal logged 15 innings without allowing an earned run and extending his incredible season to date streak to 58 innings. Curtis anchored a solid defense that turned two rally killing double plays in the final and hit .420 for the tourney.

Team members are (kneeling) Kyle Lawrence, AJ Curtis, Kyle Bettencourt, Clint Mankins, (standing) Coach Stan Montalbo Sr., Jesse Heidohrn, Chris Bush, Daniel Kuhfal, Nick Mendonca, Tyler Grider, Blake Clark, Coach Stan Montalbo II, Sean Stiles, DJ Kay and Coach Steve Kay.

The kids played so good. They met every challenge and came through in flying colors. We beat teams from Aptos, Watsonvile, Castro Valley and San Jose. We are so proud of them. Go Pleasanton!!

The boys stayed true to their motto, "Practice as a Team, Play as a Team, Win as a Team." Outstanding effort by all!

To "baseball",

You're kidding right? Below the link on the front page it gives a small description of what the article is about and the picture shows a picture of young baseball players.

What did you think the baseball uniforms, description about baseball, etc meant?

hey sorry, I have a dinosaur of a computer and I did not want to click on the link as it takes forever to open plus it sometimes kills my computer and shuts down. which is why it would be great to know what sport it is when someone writes the blurb on it in Weekly (before the link). that's all I'm saying. I'd open it up if it were basketball!

yes, it's time for a new computer, sorry folks!

Don't miss out on the discussion!
