History of Champions
BAMSBL AAA/28+/25+/21+ DIVISION
1988 - ORIOLES
The BAMSBL's inaugural season saw a very strong Orioles team capture
the league's first flag. The Orioles knocked off a stubborn Indians
team in the American League Championship game with a clutch late inning
home run by Phil Federico (Hall of Fame). The Orioles then proceeded to
oust the Cardinals in the World Series. Over the course of time team leader
Dean Asimos (Hall of Fame) would prove to be the most resilient of all
players/managers as his Orioles would have to wait another 15 years before
they won their second World Series championship in 2003!
Besides Asimos and Federico, other key players on this team were Craig
McKee-Parks (Hall of Fame), B.J. Strickland (Hall of Fame) and Eric Clayton (Hall of Fame).
1989 - RED SOX (17-3)
While in Arizona in 1988 for the first annual World Series tournament,
Rob Goldstein (Hall of Fame) at the time with the Yankees, and Pat Carroll
(Hall of Fame) at the time with the Indians, though scoffed at by some
other members of the tournament team, vowed to put together the next year's
BAMSBL league championship team. By accumulating eight (including themselves)
players from their hometown South San Francisco, childhood friends since
the 1960s, they created a Red Sox team with a five player core of South
City guys (Goldstein, Carroll, Gordon Miller - Hall of Fame, Barry Rozzi
- Hall of Fame and Paul Bachtold - possible future Hall of Famer) that
over the next 8 years through 1996 would go on to claim 6 A.L. East Division
Titles, 4 A.L. Flags and 3 World Series Championships. The team also became
the first AAA team to win three World Series Titles as well as the first
AAA team to win Back-to-Back Championships, thus establishing the Red
Sox as the first true extended dynasty in the BAMSBL's AAA League!
After disposing of the Orioles and the Twins in the A.L. play-offs the
Red Sox swept the Cardinals in the World Series. 1989's champions were
led by the dominating pitching of ex-major leaguer Herman Segelke, arguably
the most feared and intimidating pitcher in the history of the BAMSBL
(13-0 with 169 K's and a 1.23 ERA in 102 2/3 innings pitched). Leading
hitters were Bachtold (.486, 35 hits and 3 HRs), Carroll (.456, 36 hits,
2 HRs and 38 RBIs), Goldstein (.449, 35 hits, 3 HRs and 20 SB), Miller
(.446, 37 hits, 4 HRs and 31 RBIs), Bob Bachtold (.418 and 28 hits) and
Segelke (.387 and 4 HRs).

The Cardinals, led by Dave Edson, Ronnie Ford and Jim Lowe defeated Mike
Lyon's (Hall of Fame) Twins in the World Series.

Ford defeated a great Rangers team that included Steve Schefsky (Hall
of Fame), catcher Chuck Caruso (Hall of Fame) and Rudy Arroyo (ex-major
1994 - PIRATES
Led by pitcher Jeff Kramer, the Pirates won their second World Series
Championship in three years by downing the Blue Jays. The Blue Jays were
led by overpowering pitcher Chris Willshire (Hall of Fame and future major
league replacement player during the strike). This series included a game
played at the Oakland Coliseum.
1995 - RED SOX (19-3)
The Red Sox won their second World Series Title by sweeping the Phillies.
Pat Carroll (Hall of Fame and Cy Young Award) was the leading pitcher
(16-0 with over 130 innings pitched). Stand out offensive performances
were turned in by Danny Lebron (.544, 31 hits, 4 HRs, 30 RBIs and a possible
future Hall of Famer), Chuck Caruso (Hall of Fame, .489 and 3 HRs), Greg
Hill (.435 and 27 hits), Barry Rozzi (Hall of Fame, .404 and 19 RBIs),
Rob Goldstein (Hall of Fame, .365 and 3 HRs), Carroll (.361 and 17 RBIs)
and Steve Schefsky (Hall of Fame and 3 HRs).
1996 - RED SOX (17-6)
The Red Sox repeated in 1996, taking 2 out of 3 from the Pirates in a
series that would determine the first three-time champion in the BAMSBL
AAA League. Pat Carroll (Hall of Fame, 10-3 with over 115 innings pitched)
led the team in pitching. The hitting leaders were Rob Goldstein (Hall
of Fame, MVP Award, .510, 25 hits and 5 HRs), Danny Lebron (.520, 26 hits,
6 HRs and 26 RBIs), Tim McKercher (.450, 27 hits and 17 RBIs), Barry Rozzi
(Hall of Fame, .375, 24 hits and 1 HR), Carroll (.373, 22 hits and 1 HR),
Steve Schefsky (Hall of Fame, .345 and 3 HRs) and John Selvitella (.362
and 1 HR).
1997 - BLUE JAYS
Chris Willshire (Hall of Fame) and the Blue Jays claim their first World
1998 - BLUE JAYS
The Blue Jays repeat! Chris Willshire (Hall of Fame and Cy Young Award)
led the way for the Blue Jays.
1999 - CUBS
2000 - PADRES
2001 - PADRES
2002 - PHILLIES
The Phillies win their first championship under manager Bill Magoolaghan
as they knocked off the Orioles thanks to the solid hitting of CJ Martin,
Jimmy Hemphill, Rick Russelle, Sean Lake and National League AAA MVP Jesse
2003 - ORIOLES
The Orioles ended a 15 year drought by winning their second BAMSBL 28+
World Series , 7-5, over the defending Champion Phillies at Alberts Park
in San Rafael.
In a well played, tense game, the Orioles rallied for two runs in the
bottom of the 8th to defeat the Phillies. There were five lead changes
throughout the game with the Orioles ending up on top thanks to great
pitching performances by Orioles starting pitcher Darren Rodriguez and
reliever Steve Moore.
The Orioles took the lead for good in the bottom of the 8th with the
bases loaded and 2B Alan Maciel at the plate. Maciel, as he has done all
year in the clutch, laced a line shot single down the left field line
to drive in the two go ahead runs which proved to be the game winning
Steve Moore pitched out of trouble again in the ninth. After one was
out, Will Brandenberger placed a perfect push bunt past Moore and Bill
Magoolaghan followed with a line single to right to set up a potential
Phillies rally. Moore got Jimmy Hemphill on a fielder's choice and struck
out Jesse Irwin on a called third strike. With the NL MVP and the league's
leading hitter at the plate in Dan Bright, the Phillies had one more chance
to score. Moore was able to retire Bright on a fielder's choice to SS
Rick Bianchina, who stepped on second base for the final out and the Orioles
had won the game and the series.
The Orioles returned most of their players from the 2002 roster with
the invaluable additions of former Phillies OF Dave Aguero,2B Alan Maciel,
formerly of the National League Champion Expos of 1998, and SS Rick Bianchina
of the 2001 BAMSBL Champion Padres.
2004 - PHILLIES
The Phillies beat the Orioles for the 28+ Championship by scoring two
runs in the bottom of the ninth for the victory in game #2. After the
Phillies loaded the bases with one out, Sean Lake delivered a clutch single
over the outstretched glove of the Orioles second baseman to score Jimmy
Hemphill from third.
With the bases still loaded, Marty McHale battled at the plate, fouling
off pitch after pitch until a change-up in the dirt rolled to the backstop
and Jesse Irwin raced home from 3B with the winning run.
World Series MVP Jamie O'Neil pitched solidly and continued his torrid
pace at the plate. Jimmy Hemphill had 4 hits and Sean Lake got the win
after relieving 2004 Cy Young winner Jamie O'Neil in the 8th inning.
The Phillies' Jon Rocklin took home the 28+ National League MVP honors,
hitting .486 with a .618 OBA, 2 HRs and a league leading .838 Slugging
2005 - PHILLIES
Despite the absence of their spiritual leader Sean Lake who required
season ending knee reconstruction surgery in a mid-season game, the Phillies
battled all year and swept a hard-hitting Red Sox team in the 28+ World
Series. Cy Young candidate Jamie O'Neil pitched two incredible games and
helped himself by banging a home run in game #1. Jon Rocklin hit a towering
HR over the 345 foot sign at SF State to lead the Phils over the Red Sox
in game 2.
2006 - CARDINALS
Cards Win Championship behind Jeremy Advincula's complete game victory
(Line: 9 inn, 1 unearned run, 2 hits, 2 walks, 1 HBP & 8 Strike Outs).
Brandon Harris 3 for 3, 2 Runs, 2 RBI's, 1 2B & 1 SB
Jeremy Advincula 3 for 3, 2 RBI's & 2 2B's
John Sechler again pitched a gutty complete game performance giving up
only 5 earned runs and stranding 7 Cardinal base runners.
2007 - CARDINALS
CARDINALS REPEAT AS CHAMPS!!
In an epic battle between two veteran MSBL teams a gritty Cardinals squad
rallied to overcome a late 4 run deficit and prevail as champs in the
25+ Division. In a classic 3-game series that featured countless lead
changes, umpire controversy, heated exchanges, and too many big plays
on both sides to mention, it was ultimately the Cards who emerged victorious.
Both teams had numerous contributors up and down their lineups as it was
truly team efforts that made this series so exciting.

1993 - ANGELS
1994 - ANGELS
1995 - SEALS
1996 - BEAVERS (16-6)
The Beavers came all the way from dead-last in 1995, first overcoming
the Seals, whom they hadn't beaten in a few years. The Seals took the
first game of the semi-finals, but then the Beavers, under the leadership
of new manager Bill Miller and inspired by rookie sensations Wes Thomas
(MVP and Batting Title) and pitcher Eric Clayton finished off the Seals
and then swept the mighty Monarchs in route to their first PCL crown.
Thomas hit a home run in five of the six play-off games!
1997 - ANGELS
1998 - BEAVERS (20-1)
The Beavers went 16-0 in the regular season and then swept the Firebirds
to advance to the PCL Finals. In the World Series they took two out of
three against a tough Barons team to record their second PCL Championship.
Leading hitters for the Beavers were Wes Thomas (MVP Award, Batting Title,
.692, 6 HRs, 36 hits, 34 Runs, 35 RBIs and a Slugging % of 1.269), Craig
McKee-Parks (Hall of Fame, .509, 27 hits, 1 HR and 24 RBIs), Pat Carroll

HR, 33 Runs and 15 SB), Don Chambers (.404 and 20 Runs), Bill Miller (Manager,
.400 and 24 hits) and Mike Miller (.365 and 2 HRs). Carroll (CY Young
Award, 14-1, approximately 115 innings pitched and 1.50 ERA) was the leading
1999 - BEAVERS (20-0)
For the second consecutive year the Beavers went undefeated in the regular
season. In 1999 they extended their undefeated streak all the way through
the post season to win Back-to Back PCL Championships! They swept the
Oaks in the finals.
1999's offense was powered by Steve Leary (MVP Award, Batting Title,
.592, 29 hits, 22 RBIs, 29 Runs and 10 SB), Craig McKee-Parks (Hall of
Fame, .531, 26 hits, 1 HR and 23 RBIs), Pat Carroll (Hall of Fame, .510,
26 hits and 17 RBIs), Mike Miller (.464, 26 hits, 1 HR and 23 Runs) and

and 12-0) was the leading pitcher.
2000 - FIREBIRDS
2001 - BEAVERS (16-4-1)
2001 saw the Beavers reclaim their PCL Title, their third in three years
and fourth in six years! Bill Miller took a well deserved break from managing
and handed over the reins to Brian Willis (general manager), Mike Miller
(practice manager) and Pat Carroll (field manager). A far cry from their
undefeated seasons, the 2001 Championship season was fraught with turmoil
from the beginning. However, it was a season that showed the true heart
and determination of a champion as the Beavers wrung up 11 wins in their
last 12 games, culminating with a sweep of the Oaks in the World Series.
Powering the offense was Craig McKee-Parks (Hall of Fame, .520, 26 hits
and 18 RBIs), Carroll (Hall of Fame, .421 and 20 RBIs), Scott Godtfredsen
(.367), Mike Miller (.360 and 12 RBIs), Tony Kerlegan (.358, 19 hits,
1 HR and 12 SB), Willis (12 SB) and Steve Leary (12 SB). The pitching
leaders were Don Chambers (5-0 including three complete games in the post
season) and Carroll (CY Young Award, 11-3, 10 complete games with approximately
110 innings pitched and 2.50 ERA).
2002 - ANGELS
2003 - GIANTS
The Giants win the realigned 38+ league.
2004 - BARONS (Mgr. Jim Meehan)
Lead by MVP Bill Magoolaghan and Hitting Champ Thiago Lopez, the Barons
beat the Beavers in an exciting 3-game series that came down to the bottom
of the 9th inning. As the tying run dangled off of second base, Bill Magoo
struck out the final batter, his 22nd strike out in 13 innings pitched
over the final two games of the weekend.
2005 - BARONS (Mgr. Jim Meehan)
Jim Meehan's Barons repeat as 38+ Champions as the Barons' Bill Magoolaghan
outdueled the Beavers' Mike Miller in a low scoring affair at SF State.
The offensive hero for the Barons was Mike Badolato who crushed a two
run home run to right field in the top of the fifth with Thiago Lopez
onboard. Bob Jordan scored what turned out to be the winning run when
Dan Bright was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the top of the
ninth. Magoolaghan struck out eight and yielded only two earned runs in
going the distance for the Barons and capturing his 2nd win of the series.
2006 - GIANTS (Mgr. Mark Sieben)
35+ Giants Pete Johnson beat out an infield single to short-stop with
2 outs in the bottom of the 9th to score Charlie Goldberg from 3rd base
to conclude the 35+ Championship for the Giants. This year represents
the first year of the Bay Area 35+ League. The first year of the 38+ League
was 2003, which also happened to be the first year the Giants won their
world series vs. the Marin Stars in 3 games.
Double side note; Giants winning pitcher in game 3 in 2003 and 2006 was
49 year old Arturo Jaimes of San Francisco! Via La Mexico!
3 game world series hitter highlights: Pete Johnson 5 for 8 (.625%) 1
RBI, Graham Miller 4 for 7 (.571%) 3b, 3 RBI's, Eric Wernholm 3 for 6
(.500%) Double, Mark Sieben 3 for 6 (.500%) RBI, BB, Hiroaki Ajari 3 for
7 (.429%) & Dan Weller 3 for 10 (.300%) 2 RBI's.
2007 - BARONS (Mgr. Ed Delaney)
Barons Capture Their Third Crown in Four Years
The 2007 finals between the Barons and the Beavers exhibited some great
baseball. Both games were very exciting, extremely well played, and plain
old fun to participate in. In the end the difference was pitching depth,
and an over-powering offense.
This team was definitely built by a catcher. Jason Clark, the ace of
the staff, was nearly untouchable when he was healthy, Bill Magoo was
his usual masterful self, and Mike Eberhart, Steve Ewing, and Will Bateson
filled out the rest of this talented frontline pitching staff. In reserve
was Karl Maier who started the semi-final game against the Seals. It was
his first start ever, hed only pitched 3 innings of mop up all season,
and he responded with 7 gutsy innings.
Justin Kubiak, who was an offensive catalyst and rock solid shortstop
all year, seemed to hit another gear in the playoffs. He started or finished
almost every rally, hitting .625 for the series, scoring 4 and knocking
in 3. He was involved in 7 of the Barons 14 runs in the two-game series.
2008 Barons (Mgr Ed Delaney)
The Barons won their fourth title in five years on the strength of a 21 hit attack and some great pitching by Mike Eberhart and Sean Lake. Lake, Will Brandenberger, and Rob Fung each had four hits, and Rick Russelle hit a two-run homer in the first.
As Bill Magoo said after game, it was a bittersweet victory for the Barons. The players on both teams have played with or against each other for years and years, occassionally teaming up in tournaments. While it was fun baseball, you'd really prefer to beat a team that you don't like or don't respect, neither is the case between these two teams...so yeah, a fun game yesterday, and it was nice to come out on top, but it also kinda sucked because we had to witness our good friends fall just a little bit short after a fantastic season.
2009 Seals (Mgr Bob Rice)
The unlikely champs!
Sitting on a 2 win and 10 loss season, it was time for the Seals to be reminded that our goal of making the playoffs, was slipping away.
The 13 game proved to be lucky with a walk-off bottom-of-the-ninth two run-producing hit by Seals MVP Aaron Selix. With a win the next week our first goal was accomplished.
With the quality of competition in the playoff round, it was very unlikely that we would prevail. We knew we had to play our best baseball to be competitive.
Good defense in support of good pitching, along with good base running and timely hitting, we decided, would be our only chance. The final game in the championship series against an outstanding Barons team bore this out.
An excellent pitching performance by Aaron, going the distance with no walks and a defense that committed no errors, was the main reason we squeaked out a 10 to 8 win. There was no margin for error against an outstanding opponent.

Oaks Sweep Thunderbirds in 40+ Finals in Bay Area
Oaks 19, Thunderbirds 12
Mike Biglieri's Oaks squad won their first League Championship in the Bay Area (CA) MSBL by defeating the Thunderbirds in the BAMSBL’s 40+ Division series, winning the finale 14 to 12. The Oaks Roy Manzanares had three hits, Dave Cheney continued his hot hitting with two doubles and Steve Etter drove in three runs.
Oaks MVP Mike Holland led the team on the mound, improving to eight wins on the year while striking out four. Bill Magoolaghan struck out 13 Thunderbirds in game one for the 6-4 win while earning the save in game two.
The Oaks started the semi-final game with an 8-0 lead but by the second inning the T’Birds clawed back. A few hits, a couple of walks and a couple of errors later the game closed to 8-7. The Oaks continued hitting and hitting and hitting. The Oaks had the bases loaded in each of the first four innings, which helped to extend their lead to 16-7. "The T’Birds got to me by scoring five in the bottom of the eighth making the score 16-12 and it knocked me out of the game,” explained pitcher Holland. "With two on and one out, Billy (Magoolaghan) came in and slammed the door on the rally keeping them from scoring anymore.We scored a few insurance runs in the ninth and Bill closed out the game, earning the save.”
Manager Mike Biglieri summed up the 19-12 championship game. "Manzanares, Cheney and Etter really brought their bats to this game and Billy and Mike came up huge on the mound. Those are the guys who won this game and made the season and the championship possible. I just drove the train. They provided the power and execution.”

The Giants 45+ captured the Bay Area Mens Senior Baseball
League's inaugural 45 and over World Series title by sweeping the Firebirds
with a 12-0 victory on Sunday 9/30/07. After a sluggish start to the season
the Giants reeled off six consecutive victories to close out the year.
It took the Giants about 2/3 of the way into the season
to finally hit their stride and to find their identity. The defense improved
remarkably since the beginning of the season. Most impotantly, team chemistry
and camaraderie was forged into a solid foundation of strength.
The Giants showed a lot of perseverance on the march to
this championship run. Indeed, the season was fraught with perils at every
turn. However, the team managed to come through relatively unscathed,
and in the end, finished Champions!
