Camas, WA — The Camas Little League (CLL) regular season closed this week with the Majors Royals team (15-3) winning their division title. They won their final game Friday night against the Orioles, 24-22.
The boys brought their bats to the games, but they also impressed defensively.
“Our top line pitchers were as good as anybody in the league,” said manager/head coach, Casey Taylor. “Aaron Sung, Zach Blair, Dom Colletto, Jake Swenson, and Justin Taylor. What else stood out? Patrick Phelps, who hasn’t played since T-ball, is a 12-year-old now, and is by far the most improved player in the league. He made some big plays for us. Big plays defensively, big plays offensively, and all the kids were real easy to coach.”
John Blair and Will Speakman also coached the winning team. The coaches have spent countless hours over the span of many years coaching Little League teams, both regular and post-season.
“It was always fun to play against the Royals,” said Reds player, Easton McCarty. “They’re a good team. We had a lot of fun on the Reds team, too.”
Teams were drafted in March, and competitive play began in April. Post-season All-Star teams will be announced this week.
