The Cambria Reds Little League team lost its final game in the “fall ball” season, bowing to Los Osos 9-3 on Sunday, Nov. 8. But the team won four of seven games, and coach Gary Stephenson said that, while a winning record is important, fall ball is about “giving everyone an opportunity” to play and to try different positions on the field.

The Reds’ accomplishments included winning two out of three against both Atascadero teams. Stephenson attributed that success to the fact that “this is the best hitting Reds team I’ve ever coached.”

The coach praised Zack Stephenson, Anhase Martin, Alan Nunez and Nate Markham for their prowess at the plate; he gave kudos to Stephenson, Nunez and Markham, for the quality of their pitching performances; and he credited the defense for outstanding play, citing Riley Volz, Aidan and Ryan Kasper, Ethan Hoffman and Michael Sison.

“I am really looking forward to our spring season,” Gary Stephenson said, noting that every single player on the Reds “can hit any pitcher we might face.”
