This is a picture from 1958 of an Oceanside Little League team featuring Al (hurry up, I have at tee time later today) Galaviz.

The 1st and fourth place team played today at Alga 2 and both teams were eager to play. The game was low scoring but in the 4th inning Frank W. hit a homerun bringing in 4 runs for Nucci's. Rodney Johnson as usual pitched an awesome game and hit 3/4.
Tom Carney was 3/4 with 3 RBI's and Frank W. was 3/3, 1 HR and RBI'S Joe Dimambro was 3/3 and Kirsten Mildbrant and Al Cabacungan were 2/3 Nucci's performed 3 double plays against CBI.
CBI had some great defensive plays and some hard hits. Great sportsmanship from both teams.
Thanks to Rick Shaw and Roney Lewis for umpiring.
It was a windy day and the balls were carrying out at Alga as Worden Williams squared off against Pizza Port Brewery in the opening round of the playoffs. Worden Williams jumped out ahead in the first inning scoring 5 runs. Dave Ash crushed a liner up into the wind that would have gone out of the park if it had not put a huge dent into the foul pole above the fence and bounced back in for a two run homer. Bill Kutchera followed with a screamer to the fence and another 2 run homer and WW was up 5-0. Pizza Port Brewery tried to answer with Kevin McBarron 5/5, hitting a 2 run HR and Bob Loperena adding a two run shot. But PPB still trailed 13-9 after 4.
Worden Williams was controlling the game with crisp defense and hitting liner after liner as PPB could not stop the WW hitting attack or break thru the WW defense. Bob Buscher and Gene Foreman both had three hits and were aboard when Dan Griffin personally tried to take over the game going 4/4 with a triple, 6 RBIs and the big blow being a Grand Slam HR that pushed the WW lead up to 18-12 into the bottom of 6th and it was looking bleak for PPB.
Unfortunately a couple severe injuries reared their head with WWs Teddy Badillo 2/2 and PPBs Gordon Recht 3/3 both suffering game ending leg injuries. Without the Big Mans Big bat and soft glove PPB was able to rally.
Down by 6, the bottom of PPB order came thru with 7 straight hits to tie it up. John McDaniels chipped in with is 3rd hit and Dave Buck 3/4 and 3 RBIs got an RBI single and loaded them up for Rich Lavacot whose 3rd hit of the game was a screamer that cleared the bases driving in 3 runs. McBarron’s 3rd triple of the game set up an important Steve Sexton SF and the game was tied into the 7th.
In the 8th inning Pizza Port put together a two out rally with Dave Buck once again starting the action and getting to the top of the PPB order. Lavacot, McBarron, and Riserbato 5/5 all had hits in front of a Sexton triple to push PPB into their first lead of the game at 23-19. Over the last 3 innings PPB was able to hold WW to only one run and none in the 9th as Sexton improved his pitching record to 5-0 with 3 Saves on the season.
Pizza Port advanced to the title game for the 4th year in a row and looks forward to playing their nemesis Nucci’s for the 4th straight time for the championship.
The teams thank Greg Lorton and Jim Goertzen for a fine job of umping and we wish our injured teammates well in their recoveries.
Game will be played at Alga starting at 10am.
