Ahwatukee is a pretty tight community especially when sports involved.
Everyone seems to be intertwined one way or another.
It will happen again today when the Desert Vista and Mountain Pointe baseball teams meet in the third round of the Division I state playoffs at Phoenix Municipal at 4 p.m.
A good portion of both rosters got their start in the Ahwatukee Little League.
Some were named to the ALL all-star team and represented the district in the state tournament. The 2005 ALL team won state at the 9-10 age group that included Cole Tucker, Brantley Bell, Michael Weaver, Colby Woodmansee and Nick Coronado.
It means today's game will bring together a lot of families who spent a good portion of their summers watching and playing baseball, staying in hotels and eating plenty of meals together when these guys were just barely able to hit the cutoff man from the outfield wall.
From one parent's account, here are the players who played in the ALL. If someone is left off please contact me.
