Top 12U teams in So Cal this fall!

by Herm1013 » Sat Dec 07, 2019 5:33 pm

Like most rankings this is based on opinions having seen all these team this year I would have to agree that for the most part it’s pretty good list. Corona Angels are definitely the top team in the division. They have a heck of a pitching staff 1 through 3. Their 4th could be a 1 on most teams. #2 and #3 teams could easily swap places. OCBB Lestrapes plays solid defense and plays great small ball when needed. USAA has solid pitching and just got deeper, they are a very well coached team. Mercado Valencia should be in the top 4 All around good team In place of Explosion who is playing with 3-4 06’s on the team. I would however put Explosion ahead of Gurule who has been hot lately but they have lost to some avg teams. Ohana Indian is not a very good team shouldn’t be in top 10

'06 holdovers will move up in the spring and that may require some teams to reload for the year. All this is Captain obvious stuff, so let's get to it. These are open to discussion and this post is designed to bring out some passionate responses!

1. Corona Angels Perez/Knighten 07 - Clearly the most stacked team out there has been rolling over opponents. Lately has shown some kinks in the armor, maybe due to fatigue of their core players? If they stay healthy, they could go deep in summer tourneys. PGF Shootout winners, co-champs of TCS Monster Mash. Stellar defense, good bats, and top pitchers.
2. OC Batbusters Lastrapes/Sasaki 07 - Kept most of the OC Tigers team that placed 3rd at PGF Plat. Added a few key pieces for the new season. Finalist at TCS Monster Mash. Winner of silver bracket TCS Pre-Thanksgiving Cup. Well rounded team.
3. USA Athletics Rogers/Mathis 12U - New team has shown great promise with 3rd place at PGF Shootout, 3rd at TCS Monster Mash, and finalist at TCS Pre-Thanksgiving Cup. Has beaten most of the top teams at least once. Solid, deep pitching and some monster bats, well coached. Watch out for this sleeper.
4. Explosion Flores/Wren - Winner of the TCS Pre-Thanksgiving Cup, this team lost some pieces for the fall, but filled right in. Scrappy team, well coached, has a core that has been together for three years. Can get hot and beat any team in the top 10.
5. Choppers Gurule 07 - Recently beat some of the top teams in So Cal friendlies. Will compete in the summer tournaments
6. Athletics Mercado Valencia 07 - 2nd place at PGF Shootout with strong pitching. Has been playing up in 14U quite a bit this fall, which should only make them stronger. Should have a strong spring and go deep in the summer.
7. OC Batbuster Areliz - New pitching has made this team a strong contender
8. Ohana Tigers Indian - Gives top teams fits
9. OC Batbusters Garcia 2025 - New team hasn't lived up to it's potential yet, but poised for a strong spring.
10> So Cal A's Medina/Kingery 07 - New team is showing promise.

I may have missed some honorable mentions (Locomotion Greene 07, Team Freeman, Corona Angels Vasquez, Power Surge Chavez, Firecrackers Sabo and some strong 1st year teams like Choppers Franco, and Angels McCullough, So Cal As Fitzgerald) Please weigh in with your comments!

Happy Thanksgiving and good luck in your Christmas Tournaments. See everyone in 2020!

A quick shout out to BB12 in the NorCal forum for keeping it real and entertaining! And to you old school Bucketeers, you know who you are!

As far as I know, only two, maybe three of the Top 10 used '06s. Pretty sure the top three or four only used 07s with an occasional 08! Looking scary for the Spring. Gotta get ready to compete in the summer vs the cornfed Texas teams, and sweet tea drinkin Southern teams!

Explosion Wren, OCBB Areliz and Ohana Indian and Power Surge Chavez all have three+ 06's each.

Trophy chasing I guess.

Can't wait to see how they look without them.

This list look pretty accurate although I think BB Garcia could be in the top 10. After the top 4, the talent thins out a bit. There are two 07 teams in Nor Cal that qualified for Premier last year and beat teams on this list. All the teams other than maybe Perez would have a tough time matching up with Impact Gold. Happy Hunting gents!

Actually I have no 06 on my 07 team. I do have a couple 08s though. So not sure what your looking at or if you even know who is on my 07 roster.

Well it does say top teams in the fall so as long as they are age eligible it doesn't matter. The goal should always be improvement and playing older teams or players helps the younger ones.
