From Tom Chan, Issaquah Little League President
The 2010 season was a great success thanks to all the hard work from the many volunteers, so a big
thank you to the board members, managers, coaches, umpires, and parents who volunteer their time to make Issaquah Little League a great experience for our children.

- 400+ games played despite the crazy weather
- Tournament of Champions for Majors, Coast and AAA
- 26 Junior umpires and many senior umpires calling over 300 games

After 400+ games played this season, and some wild weather, the season wound down with the Tournament of Champions for Majors, Coast and AAA. Dodd Field was well decorated, sunny with crowds enjoying Frankie's Pizza and Maui Wowi Smoothies and Espresso - along with PA announcers and five year old Lauren belting out the national anthem!
|The Latest Updates:|
MAJORS: Champion Yankees defeated Phillies 5-4 on Sunday at Dodd South.
COAST: Champion Blue Jays defeated Mariners 3-2 on Monday at Dodd South.
AAA American: Champion Athletics defeated Braves 3-2 on Wednesday at Central Park.
AAA National: Champion Mariners defeated Yankees 10-6 on Wednesday at Central Park.
Tri-League Championship: Champions and 2nd place teams from Majors and Coast compete against teams from Eastlake LL and Sammamish LL in this annual event to crown the champion of the 3 leagues.
|AAA, Coast and Majors players worked on fielding, catching, and hitting stations - and of course the home run derby - with the Issaquah Eagles baseball team. It was a "sea of purple" as the kids showed off their new Issaquah Baseball pride t-shirts.|
Thanks to Coach Reese and all the IHS players for a great camp!
Little Leaguers can check the season schedule to attend Varsity home games. Wear your purple shirts and gather in the stands to cheer on the Eagles Baseball team.
