Two baseball teams representing San Manuel/Mammoth Little League are competing in All-Star tournaments which began on June30, 2014. One team each in the 9/10 Division and the 11/12 Division are playing in the tournaments for a chance to advance to the 2014 Arizona Little League Baseball State Tournaments. The state tournaments will take place in Tempe and Peoria, respectively.

The winning team of the state tournament advances to a regional tournament with a chance to play for a berth in the Little League World Series.

The tournaments are being played at Maricopa and Casa Grande. All of the tournaments are double-elimination.

The 11/12 Division All-Stars started on June 30 with a loss to Casa Grande, 9 – 0. They took on Superior on July 2 looking to avoid elimination. Unfortunately, they were unable to advance in the tournament after a 6 – 4 loss.

The 9/10 Division All-Stars started on July 1 with a loss to Casa Grande, 15 – 1. They bounced back in a big way with an 11 – 0 shut-out win over Coolidge on July 2. The 9/10 All-Stars were scheduled to take on Superior on July 7 in an elimination game. Game results were unavailable at press time. With a win over Superior, San Manuel/Mammoth would advance to play the loser between Maricopa and Casa Grande on July 8.
