The East Hampton Little League All-Stars appear to be on track to make yet another run for a District 36 title.

The 12-and-under All-Stars, which reached the district championship game last season but lost, 4-1, to Riverhead, are 2-0 out of the gate this summer. After picking up a crucial 3-1 victory over perennial powerhouse North Shore American on Saturday in Rocky Point, they followed up with a 14-0 run-rule shortened victory over Hampton Bays on Monday evening at Pantigo Park.

East Hampton and Sag Harbor both sit atop the Pool ‘A’ standings as of Tuesday morning, while North Shore American and East End are both 1-1 and Hampton Bays and Southampton are 0-2. After each team plays each other once, which will wrap up this Sunday, the top two teams from each pool move on to the semifinals of the tournament. Pool ‘B’ this year is made up of North Shore National, Eastport-South Manor, Moriches Bay, North Patchogue/Medford, Riverhead and Mastic.

Tyler Hansen was one of the many highlights for East Hampton in its win over North Shore on Saturday. He pitched a complete game needing only 65 pitches, and the lone run he allowed was erased when Carter Dickinson homered over the left field fence to tie the game at 1-1. East Hampton then took the lead for good in the top of the fourth. With two outs, Livs Kuplin drew a walk and Hansen followed up with a single, setting the table for Hudson Beckmann who drove in both base runners on a triple.

Andrew Brown and Victoreddy Diaz both pitched well in East Hampton’s win over Hampton Bays on Monday. Each only need around 20 pitches or so each to get through three and a half innings.

The 12U team is made up of Leandro Abreu, Hudson Beckmann, Andrew Brown, Liam Cashin, Victoreddy Diaz, Carter Dickinson, Tyler Hansen, Livs Kuplins, Hudson Meyer, Justin Prince, Luke Rossano and Bruno Sessler, and are coached by Andrew Rodriguez and Nicole Dickinson.

East Hampton continued in pool play on Wednesday with a game at East End, and will be back at Pantigo on Friday to host Sag Harbor at 5:45 p.m. and will finish pool play on Sunday at noon against Southampton.

10U Baseball All-Stars

The 10-and-under All-Stars, who have won the district title the past two seasons, defeated Southampton, 12-0, on Sunday at Downs Family Recreational Park. Trevor Meehan led the offense with two doubles while Kai Alversa, Tucker Bock and Harrison Jenkins each had a pair of hits. Alversa started on the mound and allowed one hit and struck out six in two innings.

Four teams make up Pool ‘A’ in the 10U group this season. North Shore American and East Hampton won their first games while Sag Harbor and Southampton are 0-1. Longwood, North Shore National, North Patchogue/Medford and Riverhead play in Pool ‘B,’ and just like their older counterparts, the top two teams from each pool move on to the semifinals of the tournament.

Additional information, such as the rest of the players and coaches who make up this year’s team, was not provided. The 10U baseball team was scheduled to play at Sag Harbor on Tuesday, weather permitting, and will host North Shore American on Thursday at Pantigo at 5:45 p.m.

12U Softball All-Stars

As is the case most years, East Hampton and North Shore were the only leagues entered in the 12-and-under District 36 tournament, creating what is a best-of-three championship. North Shore took the first game, 10-0, on Sunday afternoon. Both teams were expected to play Tuesday in the second game of the series at East Hampton High School, with game three, if necessary, back at the North Shore complex in Rocky Point on Thursday, June 27, at 5:45 p.m.
