SOUTH LAKE TAHOE — The top two prizes in South Tahoe National Little League belong to the orange and black. The Giants won championships in both the Majors and AAA divisions, delivering in the title games held June 11-12 at the little league complex.

In the Majors championship game, the Giants beat the Tigers 10-8 in a back-and-forth battle on Saturday, June 11. Both teams endured a 40-minute lightning delay in the game that ultimately went to the Giants, who finished undefeated in the postseason.

In the AAA title game, the Giants downed the Angels 12-3 on Sunday, June 12. AAA Giants manager Joe Laub said the championship group was one of his all-time favorites in 18 years of coaching.

“It was a remarkable group of players that transitioned from a team to a family, as they trusted themselves and their teammates, ‘brought their guts’ and peaked at the right time for the playoffs,” AAA Giants manager Joe Laub said. “This season will never be forgotten by any of the wonderful boys and girls that all contributed in their own selfless ways.”
