Scenes From Little League Softball Against Espanola

The Los Alamos County Little League Softball Majors All Star team, ages 10-11-12 played an All Star team from Espanola Wednesday evening at the North Mesa Ball Park Complex for the right to represent the district in the state championship games in Albuquerque next week. The game started out slow for the Los Alamos All-Stars as they fell behind in the first inning, unable to keep pace with Espanola.
