MP Wins Three District Titles

Myers Park Trinity's All-Star baseball teams have won three 2014 NC District 3 Little League Tournament Championships. Building on the success of our two state titles in 2013, this is the first time the league has won 3 championship banners at the district level in the same year.

The 9-10-year-old, 10-11-year-old and 11-12-year-old All-Star teams all won District 3 Tournaments and have earned a spot in the NC State Tournament for each age group. The winner of each State Tournament will advance to its respective Southeast Regional Tournament. Last year MP sent teams to both the 10-11-year-old Regional Tournament in Greenville, NC, and the 11-12-year-old Major League Tournament in Warner Robins, GA. The winner of the tournament in Warner Robins goes to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, PA.

The NC State Tournaments are scheduled as follows. Stay tuned for game schedules to be posted in the coming days.

9-10-year-old State Tournament:  July 12-18.  Morganton, NC.
10-11-year-old State Tournament:  July 12-18.  Kernersville, NC.
11-12-year-old State Tournament:  July 17-23.  Greenville, NC.

Congrats to our MP teams on their District success and good luck at States. As usual, fans back home can follow all the action on Twitter at @mplittleleague.

The first round of All-Star tournaments begin this weekend with the Tournament of Champions (TOC) in five different age groups throughout District 3. In most groups these games will serve as a warm-up to the official District 3 Tournaments, which will begin June 21 and each send a winner to the NC State Tournament.

Here are the TOC schedules. Games start this Saturday, June 7. Follow the action on Twitter @mplittleleague.

12-year-old TOC at Dilworth

With MPTLL hosting the 11's tournament, the league will need several volunteers to make it all happen. Responsibilities for each game of the tournament include: concessions, field prep, scorebook, pitch count, PA announcer and scoreboard.
