The 2006 edition of the Daily Pilot Youth Baseball Dream Team was not easy to assemble. Several local teams went further than many expected and the talent was undeniable on each roster.
Eventually, that talent was whittled down to 14 players from local Little League Majors All-Star squads and the Newport Harbor Baseball Assn. Bronco All-Stars. All 14 of the players are from the same 11- and 12-year-old age grouping.
Selections include Martin Myszynski, Tyler Sheffner and J.T. McLuckey of the Costa Mesa American Little League All-Stars; Gramm Sedano and Stephen Hildebrand of the Costa Mesa National All-Stars; J.D. Dawn, Andrew McCormack and Chase Favreau of the Newport Beach American All-Stars; Jedd Thayer and Brett Thompson of the Newport Beach National All-Stars; and A.J. Swies, Nick McCann, Brett Parker and Matt Carpenter of the NHBA Bronco All-Stars.
