Recap and Photo of the champions here:

If your first question was “Who are the Cal State Builders?”, I’m right with you. The answer is that they are team organized for this one tournament. The squad combines players from both Northern and Southern California. They were led by pitchers Matt Barnes, Gerald Pyle, and Ron Rupp, who all play in the SCIFL. Barnes had a hand in two no hitters on the weekend, one of them a perfect game. Dean Waltier and Javier Fierro had big weekends at the plate in Oregon to lead the offense.
