La Costa Bandits - 2006 Triple Crown World Series
by Staff Writer
08/16/06-The La Costa Bandits traveled to Steamboat Springs, Colorado to play in the 2006
Triple Crown World Series tournament. This was the 3rd consecutive year for the Bandits to
play in Steamboat Springs. The Bandits were the champions in 2004(9u) and took 2nd place in
2005(10u). The Bandits again played fantastic baseball taking a #1 seeding into bracket play and
a 6-1 record into the semi-final game. The Bandits faced a pesky Utah Horn team in the semis.
Utah outplayed the Bandits to advance to the final game, where the CA Sliders defeated Utah.
The Bandits finished the 11u open division tournament with a very respectable 6-2 record and
brought home 3rd place hardware and great memories.
Great job La Costa Bandits!

La Costa Bandits - 26 World Series Wins,  Now Look to Future
by Staff Writer
The La Costa Bandits baseball team finished the 2007 Triple Crown World Series with a 7-2
record earning 3rd place. Over the past four years, the La Costa Bandits have championed a
combined World Series record of 26-6 placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd place (twice). Their successes are
magnified when considering the Bandit players are all from a local league "LCYO" and community
whereas the majority of opponents draw from multi-county and even multi-state boundaries.

The Bandits have been together since 2003 as 8-9 year olds, playing baseball nearly year around,
learning the finer details of baseball, but the 2007 season will end the journey of this team as the
boys from hereon will continue down separate pathways. Along with becoming one of the finest and
most respected teams in the country, they have built friendships and memories that will last a lifetime.
A Bandit celebration will be held in honor of the players, coaches, families and memories.
Congratulations Bandits and good luck in the future! We have been blessed!
