Pacific Coast Breakers
2004 World Series Champions


Tournament Summary

The Pacific Coast Breakers won the 38+ Federal Division 2004 World Series, giving the Pacific Coast League it's fifth World Series Championship and first ever 38 and over World Champion.

For team Manager, Dirk Deem, this is his third World Series Championship. Dirk previously won in 1997 managing the Conejo Bandits and again in 1998 with the Tinseltown Terror.

The Breakers finished the round robin at 5-1 to give them the number one seed and advance directly to the semi-finals. The semi-finals proved to be a bit tougher than pool play. The Breakers squeaked by the West Coast Twins 11-10 for a birth in the Championship Game.

In the championship game, the Breakers had to face the South Dakota 40's who had previously beaten them 6-1 earlier in the week. The Breakers were able to turn the tables and return the favor beating the 40's 7-1 and clich the World Series Championship.

Individual achievements:

Marty Orozco, Eric Exner and Fred Russel started the tournament off hot. But, I have to say a pitching performances were unbelievable, Only one pitcher was used in seven out of the eight games!

Joe Nunez down 6 runs in the first inning of the first game took a ball off the knee. Then picked himself up off the dirt and finished the game giving up no more runs and winning (lots of heart).

I knew we had a good chance with Jim Vatcher on the mound for the championship game. (great job Vatch!)

The team chemistry was outstanding the best I ever seen and I want to thank all of them for this great experience.
