The East L.A. Dodgers are members of the Orange County Collegiate League (OCCL), and we are also members of the Western Baseball Association (WBA) of NBC Baseball. We are also members of the Metro League in Stan Musial Baseball (AABC). Our White Team plays on the road on the weekends.
Our collegiate wood bat team is built on pitching and defense. Our team strength is in the fact that our pitching and defense will give us an opportunity to win each game. Offensively, our primary focus is to have a high on base percentage in order to give us more chances to score.
Our philosophy is to put the ball in play, cut down the strikeouts, advance runners, score early in the game, and put pressure on the defense. Because of the wood bat regulations, the power game is minimal. Therefore we like to put the runners in motion, take the extra base, bunt, etc. Offensive execution is a key to our success. For local conference and non-conference games, we will be suiting up about 15 players: 3 pitchers, 2 catchers, 5 infielders, 4 outfielders, and 1 designated hitter. Each player will be informed one week in advance which games he is expected to participate in.
