Los Alamos County Little League 9-11 Year Olds Win District … Head To State Tournament!

The Los Alamos County Little League hosted a three day baseball tournament this past week played at the North Mesa Sports Complex. Tuesday evening the 9-10-11 year old Little League teams played a final game on the Upper Minors Field. The Los Alamos team played the team from Espanola at 6 p.m. Both teams played very hard, but the pitching and strong hitting of the Los Alamos team was no match for the Espanola team and they won the game 14-4 and the District 1 title. The Los Alamos team will represent District 1 at the upcoming state tournament. Photo by John McHale/ladailypost.com
