Coul Oak Little League All Stars is a post season tournament team comprised of 13 all-star players from the 4 Coul Oak Little League teams within their respective division. The name Coul Oak is derived from the communities that the players reside: Coulwood and Oakdale.
Coul Oak is affiliated with Little League International as a non-profit organization who believe in the ideals of Little League, they offer baseball for youth in the northwest area of Charlotte, NC. The age groups vary from 5 years old to 16 years, with eight T-Ball teams, 10 machine pitch teams, 9 minor league teams, 4 major league teams, and three Junior/Senior league.
Heritage Printing project coordinator Trevor Gibson and his son are richly affiliated with the Coul Oak Little League. Trevor began his baseball career (albeit short) with the Coul Oak Little Leaguers when he was 6 years old as a pitcher and second baseman and now his son is following in his footsteps as a Coul Oak All Star pitcher, short-stop and second baseman. Noah is reaching the pinnacles of Little League baseball that Trevor dreamed of and more. Trevor is the active pitching coach for the All Stars and first base coach during the games, he has kept his baseball dream alive through Noah and his friends.
Noah Gibson is a 13-year-old Coul Oak All Star heading to the State Tournament! Noah and his teammates have played together and against each other since 2006 as All Stars and in the Coul Oak Little League. This year has been magical as they won this year’s District 3 Tournament, which earned them a spot in The State, which begins 7-22-16.
The State (as we LL followers call it) is a double elimination tournament with teams from the 4 divisions of our state. IF, the Coul Oak All Stars can exit victoriously, they will have earned a berth in The Regionals! The Regionals host teams from the eastern seaboard district, this is the second highest level of little league a Little League team can reach, it’s so prestigious that every game telecasts on ESPN! There are 2 Regional tournaments, which whittle the teams down to the eventual Little League World Series contestants.
It’s every father’s dream to re-live his youth with his son and none relishes it more than a baseball player’s dad. Always with a smile, Trevor practices, coaches, drives, rejoices and gets heartbroken with these 13 young men and the other coaches, it’s a luxury every baseball player young and old fantasize about.
If you truly love baseball, nothing can replace the smell of fresh cut grass, the “smack” of the baseball into a leather glove or especially the distinct “CRACK” of a baseball being hit out of the park.
Everyone here at Heritage Printing and the Northwest Charlotte region is excited for our Coul Oak All Stars and we delight in the thought of watching their skills on ESPN at Williamsport, PA the home of the 2016 Little League World Series.
