    SCIFL Masters Tournament In Palmdale, Calif.

    Wednesday, April 26th, 2017

    From Jesse Ortiz
    SCIFL President

    Sunday, April 30, 2017 schedule is now available; see attached. Please remind your players to make sure their bats have a tamper proof NAFA 2017 sticker before they can use it.

    On another note, the City of Santa Fe Springs just advised me that they are closing all their ball fields on May 7, 2017 which means we will not be able to use the fields.

    I’m looking for other fields and the only park that is available is Palmdale, same park location.

    With this change I need to know what teams are interested in going back to Palmdale for the May 7, 2017 masters tournament. Please think about it and let me know Sunday, April 30, 2017.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

    Sincerely,
    Jesse Ortiz
    SCIFL President

    Friday, April 14th, 2017

    MIKE MILLIGAN fired a four-hitter in leading All-Star Automotive of Grass Valley, Calif. to a 6-0 victory over the A1 Rockies in the winners bracket of the A-Major Division in the 2017 Las Vegas Road Trip X tournament, Sunday, April 9. Photo By BOB OTTO

    “I’m very proud of that. We all work hard at growing the game around here.”- Mike Milligan on the Grass Valley men’s fastpitch league.

    GRASS VALLEY, Calif. – Mike Milligan took up pitching when he was 39 years old in 2000. Now 47, he has developed into one of the best NAFA A-Major pitchers in Northern California.

    He had an outstanding performance in the 2017 Las Vegas Road Trip X , April 7-9, helping All Star Auto of Grass Valley finish runner-up (4-2) in the A-Major Division.

    Milligan beat eventual champion, A1 Rockies, in the winners’ bracket final, 6-0. He fired a four-hitter with eight strikeouts and a walk. And was in command the entire game.

    “He’s got a good rise and drop and knuckle ball,” said All Star Auto manager Tom Allen after the game. “He is a tough gamer.”
