Toms River East 11-Year-Olds Clinch District 18 Championship

TRE American's 11-year-olds will play tonight in sectionals.

The District 18 Little League is seeing some local victory for the 11-year-old team out of Toms River East.

Toms River East American won the District 18 Championship Wednesday and heading into this evening is 2-0 in the sectionals.

Here's an update from Coach Denny Munson:

"The Toms River East American 11-year-old team won the District 18 Championship Wednesday night. They are now 2-0 in the sectional tournament and resume play tonight in Spring Lake. This is a team who lost its star pitcher due to the league border controversy...and also had two players go on vacation...yet persevere. Truly amazing kids."

"The Toms River East American 11-year-old baseball team continues to roll in the Section 3 tournament defeating Manalapan Thursday night 9-4 and South Wall Fridaynight by a score of 9-5. Playing their seventh game in a row, the boys have shown the guts and determination of champions winning the District 18 title and two sectional games in that span. East won back to back games against cross town rival TRLL National with a decisive victory in the winner-takes-all finale to take home the District 18 banner.

"The team will continue its quest for a state chapionship berth tonight as they take on Robbinsville at 6pm at the Spring Lake/Sea Girt Little League complex."

I love how this turns into being about Jealousy, wait are you on the TRELL board as well. This has nothing to do with Jealousy but like TRELL you are avoiding what it is about and that is there corrupt way of running that League, and yes I do have something to do with the league and that is paying over $300 a season for 2 children which gives me just as much right to speak of there ways that many do not agree with. If airing dirty laundry is what you want to call me speaking the truth than so be it. I have wished the kids the best and never said anything about the kids, this is entirely about the league and those who have ruined it including that great manager and former VP. Your child obviously plays on the team and all the best but negative comments are not what is being spoken, honest, truthful comments are what is being spoken and with that you can have your thoughts and I will have mine and that is why I live in this wonderful country.............

Parent, you are 100% right. The kid is the one who suffered and I think we can all agree that was messed up. As for being ashamed of what is being said, Sorry can't agree. If he and his older brothers played for 13 years like you say well than that just adds to the incompetence of the TRELL board for overlooking the entire address rules, and it would have been overlooked again this year by all of them if it were not for LL international enforcing the rule. Everyone who responds seem to think that the problem is with the kids as a Team or individual but read the print, the problem is with Toms River East LL and it's incompetent Board of Directors. And when the player was told he could not play they found a spot for him on a non sanctioned tournament team but failed to allow another child to replace him on the All Star team. Why was this done, was there not another child who played his heart out all season who deserved to play on that TEAM or was it because he was not good enough for that Team through there coach's standards. Think about it and see that it is not the kids it is all who think they are running a business instead of a Recreational LL.

Ive coached along side the manager for several of his 14 years at TRELL. His players, parents and colleagues have nothing but respect for his coaching and conduct. Unfortunately there is always one parent, like yourself, who thinks their "next coming of Derek Jeter" child gets slighted for all-stars or doesnt get to pitch for their own safety sake, who then has to go after the hard working, dedicated coaches instead of taking the time to spend practicing with their child. They call that displacement or transference in psychotherapist terms. You were a failure at baseball, dont spend quality daddy time with Jr. and take that feeling of failure out on others. You are THAT guy. Clearly.
