THUNDER SOX 12U MEETING A SUCCESS!
DECEMBER 6, 2013 - Thunder Sox Baseball held their 12U meeting for the spring at Total Player Center (TPC) in Pleasanton on Thursday night.

Rosters and other information for the 12U team will be posted in the coming weeks, so check back for details!
2014 SUMMER BALL RECRUITING IS UNDERWAY!
NOVEMBER 15, 2013 - The Thunder Sox are currently in the process of recruiting players for our 18U Connie Mack Team, 18U High School Don Mattingly team and 17U Mickey Mantle team this coming summer. We are also recruiting for 12U and 14U teams for spring, which we plan to continue into summer ball.
Our 18U Connie Mack team will play in the Connie Mack league and compete against top competition in the Bay Area and beyond. In 2013, the T-Sox won the Select division regular season with a 12-2 record. The 18U High School team will play in the Don Mattingly division, and the 17U will play in the Mickey Mantle division. All teams will play a 35-40 game schedule with 2 practices a week and 3-4 tournaments. The home field for the teams will be Chabot College and Cal High School in San Ramon.
There are still some spots available, but teams are filling fast! If you are interested in playing with the Thunder Sox this summer please contact Coach Lonsdale at 510-909-6718 or email TsoxBaseball@gmail.com.
THUNDER SOX PLAYERS IN COLLEGE
NOVEMBER 19, 2013 - Here is a quick roundup, highlighting a few former Thunder Sox players who have either made news or are primed to make news. If you would like to be highlighted in this space, contact us at TSoxBaseball@gmail.com and let us know what you're doing!
The Thundersox are happy to announce that LHP Joey Lucchesi (2012) has signed a letter of intent to play for Southeast Missouri State beginning in 2015. The Chabot College lefty will pitch for the Gladiators this year as a sophomore. Lucchesi was the leader of our college team's pitching staff in 2012 and could be a draftable prospect with a big season this year.
CSUMB catcher Mikey Lonsdale is primed for a big senior season leading the Otters. A former All-American catcher at Chabot College, Lonsdale is being counted on to help lead the way to a repeat of the Otters' 2013 CCAA championship.
Former Livermore HS RHP Jackson Mancieri (T-Sox 2012-13) signed with Doane College (NE) following an outstanding 2013 summer season. Mancieri worked incredibly hard and was patient, waiting his turn to show what he could do. In the Firecracker Classic in Huntington Beach, Mancieri was dominant, shutting down a top Southern California team to the tune of 2 hits in 7 innings, allowing only one unearned run. He signed his letter of intent shortly after. The right-hander will be competing for innings for Doane this spring.
Please take time to check out all of our former players making a name for themselves in college and pro ball.
18U HEADING TO RENO!
As the 2013 fall season winds down, the 18U Thunder Sox will be heading to the University of Nevada at Reno over Veterans Day weekend to play a tournament for Division-1 level scouts and coaches. This will be an exciting event and a great opportunity for our players to compete.
KYLE FRANCO, BAY AREA WORLD SERIES MVP!!!
JULY 1, 2013 - This past weekend the annual Bay Area World Series was held
at Santa Clara University. This event is an invite only, showcase style
tournament where the top 2014 graduates are invited. Over 150 players are
selected and separate into teams by region. Three of our Thunder Sox Players were invited; Kyle Franco (Foothill), Cameron Self (Livermore) and Francis Demartini (Monte Vista). While all three of our players had great weekends Kyle Franco was the standout of the whole tournament winning the MVP award. In the championship game Franco’s Contra Costa team defeated the South Bay team by a score of 4-0. In that game Franco hit a 3 run double and pitched a 1,2,3 inning on the mound touching 87 MPH numerous times. Franco has worked extremely hard and really grown as a player since joining the Thunder Sox. All of our coaches are proud of his growth and success he has found through all of his hard work.
The Bay Area World Series also holds an underclassman event for 2015 graduates at Cal Poly in July. Please look for Thunder Sox
Thomas Triantos (Livermore) and Aaron Gaela (Dublin) in that event to have the same success as our 2014 grads did this past weekend.
THUNDER SOX JOIN CONNIE MACK
May 1, 2012 - We are excited to announce that our 18U program has been selected to join the Connie Mack league in Northern California. Connie Mack baseball has a long tradition for being the top league for 18U baseball players and teams to compete in over the summer. This opportunity will give all of our players a chance to show case their skills and talents against the best competition around and to be seen by more college recruiters in the process. If you are interested in joining the Thunder Sox Connie Mack team please contact Coach Lonsdale and set up a personal tryout.
