Tennessee Mojo
Birmingham Thuderbolts

Seems like these are the teams to beat if you wanna win a National title.



Honestly I'm not sure how well but from what I have seen of those teams, it's generally a different animal.
Most of the So Cal teams are made up of girls who all live within 30 miles of each other. There are also going to be several teams, that age, of girls who are in that 30 mile radius.
These teams from back east are made up of all of the best girls from much larger areas where there isn't the competition between teams for those girls.

Okay but what does that have to do with it? I think the only teams on that list that really get kids from other states migh be Bev Bandits and Thunderbolts, none the less if you are the top team in any age Div. it should not matter where your players are from or was this a CA thing only?

This ranking was of the top teams in 14U in Southern California. Was carried over from another thread in a different section of the forum where the subject was what would move the board.

Those other states where those other teams are from have their own forums here on this site. Let the people who see those teams week in and week out discuss them in those other states forums



And the 14u PGF champions last year were a team from So Cal.

They beat American Pastime Velasquez in the finals.

Mercado Tidd won the Great Park side of the tournament.

Guess we will see who the better dark/2023 teams are now.

Mercado Athletics Hovermale
OC Batbusters Campbell
Explosion Alaan
Firecrackers Holcomb/Knight

Any others?
Mercado Athletics Tidd?
Ohana Tigers Limardo?


How good is that Breakers Labs Black team?

Breakers Labs/Black is a good team.

Had hoped to have been able to see some more 2023 teams the past few months but it's been all wet.

The top 10 2023 teams in no particular order would have to be.


Mercado Athletics Hovermale
OC Batbusters Campbell
Mercado Athletics Tidd
Explosion Denaio/Alaan
Firecrackers Brashear 2023
Firecrackers Holcomb/Knight
So Cal As Medina/Briggs
Corona Angels Edwards
Ohana Tigers Limardo
Corona Angels Ortega

But I have no idea how accurate that is. Are these 10 even among the top 10 2023 teams in So Cal? Wish this rain would go away so we could find out.
March Mayhem may have a few of these 10 in it if we can have a dry St Pats weekend

Amazing day of games. Most games were 6 or 7 innings which was great.

It was a friendly, so it’s difficult to tell who has the best 9. A lot of games that were 2-1, 3-2, 5-4, etc.

And yes....Mizuno Storm very strong!
