The Blossom Valley All-Stars of San Jose captured the U.S. championship at the Pony World Series on Saturday by defeating North Richland Hills (Texas) 19-2 in Burleson, Texas.
Next up for Blossom Valley is Puerto Rico on Sunday for the Mustang 10-U World Series title.
Saturday, Coleman Brigman helped lead the offense by going 4 for 4, including a three-run homer. Jaden Belardes, Dutch Landess and Jason Siri added three hits each
Belardes started on the mound and allowed one run in three innings before William Kempner closed out the game in the fourth.
Last season, former Cal cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha signed a lucrative free agent contract with Philadelphia on the third day of camp and couldn't practice for nearly a week.
On the day after agreeing to terms, Asomugha couldn't explain how he might fit in the Eagles defense. The season was six weeks away.
This year's camp has been different. All the uncertainty of 2011 has vanished. Asomugha knows what to do, where to go, and what is expected of him.
"Comparing training camps, it's not fair," Asomugha said. "Going through the last training camp, there were so many things I was thinking about, so many things I was trying to get covered. Coming into this training camp, having the offseason and having last season to go through the fire a little bit, it's not even a comparison. Everybody's calmer, I'm calmer."
