Shetland Padres

After starting off the season as the White Sox the Shetland Padres have given it their all. Every player on the team gives 110% and wants to be a part of the action in every play! We have had several great plays at home plate from all of our catchers and great hitting off the pitching machine. We’re all having a fun time getting out there and putting in our best effort. The lineup for the team is Vance Barber, Brennan Casper, Landon Marks, Samuel "Sammy" Morales, Oscar Perez, Shay "Walle" Phillips, Aaron Schluentz-Hartman, Isaiah Trujillo, & Aiden Young. The team is managed by Shay Phillips and Assistant Coaches Hector Morales & Jason Young. Our team mom is Michelle Schluentz who keeps the boys ready in the dugout!



Shetland Tigers

The Shetland Tigers are represented by a group of boys and girls that give their best effort every game and practice. They have a big D on their shirts and play big D in the field. When a Shetland Tiger steps to the plate every swing gives off a wild “ROAR.” If you get the chance to watch them play you will notice the love and respect they have for the game of baseball. All little tigers need big tigers to watch over them and that’s where the team moms and coaches come in. With three coaches and two team moms showing them the way the Tigers have become a great team and are improving with every swing, throw, and catch.

Shetland A's

The Shetland A's started off the season strong and are going to end stronger!  What a great group of kids, always giving it 100%.  The team is full of leaders, always helping each other out and building each other up. The other teams have to be on their toes when the A's are up to bat, they are a big hitting team; the lineup is loaded with power hitters!  The A's defense isn't lacking either, turning a double play or two, the Pinto division has some great players moving up next year.  Even with first time players and parents, there is no shortage of support.  The Team Mom, Tiffany Yandell keeps everything running in the dugout, Coach Mindy, Ken, Keith,  both Chris', Ed, all put in a tremendous amount of work with the kids, all helping to mold them into great baseball players!  The A's parents and supporters make it all possible!  Shout out to the A's Sponsor, Marler Campbell Dental, and to Mike Cazares for the game photos!

Shetland Red SOX

What a great opening weekend! We had a blast with our Shetland Red Sox team.

Opening night was a huge success. All of our players really enjoyed the carnival games and jumpers. They charged it like a bunch of pros. It was really special to be at the park under the lights and the team marched with such pride chanting, “LET’S GO RED SOX!” You may have noticed we have a huge volunteer staff for our team. We have 6 Coaches including our Manager/Board Member, Team Mom and two Dugout Mom’s. Coach Leo believes in making not just a team environment but also a extended family environment. These are opportunities to make memories with our kids but also to build friendships for the families for years to come. Our first game of the season went off without a hitch and we were able to give out 2 game balls. One for Julian Flores who not only hit the ball off the machine but tagged an out at first base! Our other game ball player was Daniel Robbins who did an amazing job owning the plate as a catcher. Nothing was getting past him! We are all looking forward to the rest of the season and all it has to offer, not only teach the amazing game of baseball but also build them as a team, learn to succeed, build character development and most important a team family! Let Go Red Sox!!!

Mustang Royals

The 2015 Mustang Royals is one of our most diverse teams in the Mustang Division, with 12 players from Escondido and Valley Center: Danny Lopez (1), Jimmy Coyle (2), Carson McBrearty (3), Jakob Kazlauskas (4), Jakob Mulder (5), Jonas Kazlauskas (6), Adam Walls (7), Cameron Fogarty (8), Noah Reyes (9), Nate Finch (11), Gilbert Ruiz (12), and J.J. Magnuson (13). The players have already shown remarkable progress since our first practice, and their first game highlighted the success of the Royals’ pitching, fielding, and overall teamwork. As a major accomplishment, the pitchers technically threw an opening day No–Hitter, since the only run was walked in!  The Royals’ Saturday win was a testament to the dedicated coaching by Manager Jim Coyle and Assistant Coaches Lorenzo Lopez, George Feliciano, and Erick Magnuson, who have been working with the players to improve skills, learn strategy, promote teamwork, and have a great time.  Team moms are Pam Fogarty and Amanda Finch.
