I’m biased but those Texas teams are overrated, lived in Texas a little bit and was not impressed. That Tennessee team is impressive but they pull players from multiple states.
If you take the top player from each of the SoCal team below, you’ll have the top 12u team in the nation by far.

12U Explosion - Denio/Serrano
Athletics Mercado Ornelas
Batbusters-Garcia 2024
Corona angels Tyson 06
I-5 Softball North 12u
OCBB Mascarenas
Power Surge Berndes
So Cal Athletics Terrones/Medina/Briggs
Suncats Natividad/Lee-Walker

The hardest part for some of these team will be figuring out who the best player would be. Since most of these girls play multiple positions, I’m pretty confident you’ll end up with the top pitching/catching combos, the top fielding team, and the biggest bats. Might not have the fastest team but it will definitely be the scariest and the most talented team.
If you’ve been around the 06 teams for a while, you would probably know the names or know the numbers of most of these girls.

Since Mascarenas was the last SoCal coach to win PGF at the 12u level, she’ll be my number 1 pick to coach the team, but I wouldn’t mind having Garcia, Weil, or Briggs on the coaching staff.

tlilly1020 is that opinion based on fact? No offense, but haven’t even heard of the team. Where have they competed recently? Any tournament wins? Most of the teams ih8ddyball mentions have a notch or two under their belts.

Personally who really cares.... is it about trophy’s or about these young ladies hopefully someday going and to college. Being #1 and trophy’s don’t get you into school... my daughter has played for some of the top teams in the nation and they didn’t get her into school.... she did it!!!not one time did they talk to a coach on her behalf but by the time it’s all said and done she will get 70% of her school paid and not one time did the school watch her play. She went to the camp like what they saw and made an offer!!!! They don’t care what team you play for!!!! They care if you can hit catch and throw.... Ridiculous

Travelballer I think you missed the point of the discussion and ihDiddy I would add Tyson to a team of coaches that I would want on my side having won the 14u PGF title last season. A couple of other solid teams are the Firecrackers TDR squad and the Lady Magic Boykin who have qualified for premier

Would love to get some feedback on a top 10-20 list of rankings of teams in California. NorCal has seen the top teams beat up on each other all season and 5-6 teams are clearly above all the rest. Grapettes (Moose) did travel to San Diego and handle all the teams they played except lost to I-5 North in championship game. I-5 North to me was a big powerful team are they ranked in top 10 in So Cal? Right now top 6 teams in NorCal are
Grapettes 06
Lady Magic 06
Cal Nuggets 06
AASA Mortimer 06
Sorcerer Bigley 06
San Jose Sting 06
This list changes weekly all are very close in talent!

It's hard to tell who is the number 1 or top 10 in 12U division until after PGF Nationals. Wait and see...
