The Southampton Little League Minors (10-and-under) All-Star baseball team was a win away from reaching the semifinals of the District 36 Tournament after splitting its first two games last week.

After defeating Hampton Bays, 10-0, on Friday at Flying Point Field, Southampton lost, 10-0, to East Hampton at Pantigo Field the following day. Southampton was scheduled to battle its neighbor Sag Harbor on Tuesday evening and the winner of that game will move on to the district semifinals on Friday.

The District 36 Tournament—which ultimately leads to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pennsylvania—starts off with pool play, where every team plays each other once. The top two teams from each pool advance to the semifinals, and the winners of those games play for the district title on Saturday.

East Hampton, after its 2-0 start, is already locked in as the top team from Pool ‘A’ and will be moving on, leaving one spot open for Southampton or Sag Harbor, since Hampton Bays (0-2), the only other team in the pool, will not advance. North Shore National and North Shore American are the most likely teams to move on from Pool ‘B’ with both sitting at 2-0.

Kyle Warner struck out nine in Southampton’s victory over Hampton Bays last week. Bailey Brown, the team’s only girl, did a good job behind the plate as the team’s catcher, manager Kirk Warner said.

Joining Brown and Warner on this year’s team is Thomas Crawford, Jack D’Italia, Hudson Fox, Dylan Glanz, Noah Kent, Alexander Mambrino, James Navan, Daniel Palumbo, Tommy Pogue-Guerin, Cooper Sanders and Cole Senior. Sara Kent, Jamie Navan and Kirk Warner are the team’s coaches.

Majors All-Stars Bounce Back

The Southampton Majors (12-and-under) All-Stars just got their tournament underway with a game on Thursday, June 28, which was a 6-3 loss to Moriches Bay. Two days later on Saturday, Southampton suffered a 12-0 loss to East Hampton at Pantigo Field, but on Monday, Southampton rebounded with a 21-8 victory over Hampton Bays at Flying Point Park. Southampton’s offense was powered by early doubles from Riley Herrmann and Mason Stevens, and Travis Deuel, Daniel McDonnell, Liam Blackmore and Michael Parash all had mulitple-hit games. The big blow came off the bat of William Mueller, though, a grand slam in the fourth inning. Douglas Dunkirk and McDonnell each pitched for Southampton.

Southampton was scheduled to play Eastport South Manor in Manorville on Tuesday and will play North Shore National on Friday and will finish up pool play with a game against Sag Harbor in Bridgehampton on Saturday.

The Majors division of the District 36 Tournament features 13 different teams made up of all of the Little Leagues east of Route 112. Pool ‘B’ has most of the East End’s teams in it, including East Hampton, ESM, Hampton Bays, Moriches Bay, North Shore National, Sag Harbor and Southampton. The top two teams from each pool move on to the semifinals in a single-elimination game and the winners advance to the finals.

This year’s team includes: Travis Deuel, Travis Kreymborg, Douglas Dunkirk, Mason Stevens, Michael Parash, Luke Haley, Riley Herrmann, Daniel McDonnell, Liam Blackmore, William Muller, Luke Mobius, Chris Sullivan, and Charles Davis. The team is coached by Rob Herrmann, Shawn Deuel, and Daniel McDonnell.
