Dodgers, Giants, Team Easton and more win Murrieta Valley Pony Baseballís division titles

With the fall season sports in full swing, the Murrieta Valley Pony Baseball league (MVPB) wanted to make sure to recognize their teams from their spring season that showed true grit by winning their division, especially one particular team that won in a very dramatic fashion.

The competition heated up towards the beginning of the summer for MVPB as teams from the league battled it out to claim the overall title of division champion. The Shetland Dodgers, Pinto White Sox and Mustang Red Sox all walked away as champs, but it was in the Bronco division where all the drama unfolded as the Giants would go on to win the league championship over division rivals, the Bronco division Padres on May 31, 2014.

After dropping the first game to the Padres, the Giants had the odds stacked against them in the 2nd game of a doubleheader, but they prevailed behind solid pitching from Hunter DeCristo and Alex Ortega. The Giants also had to compete on both sides of the plates and had an offensive explosion that accounted for 9 runs in the first 2 innings and their bats never let up solidifying the 20-8 victory to claim the title. Rick Barazza contributed to this portion of the story.

Team Easton also represented MVPB in true fashion claiming championship wins in both the 12U and 8U divisions of the newly formed Southwest Interleague Baseball Alliaance (SIBA league) where they not only competed against other Pony and Travel teams from Murrieta, but also teams from Temecula, Menifee and French Valley as well.
