Chula Vista Little League wins World Series

 

Chula Vista's Park View All-Stars were crowned Champions of the Little League World Series held in Williamsport, PA. Chula Vista welcomed home last night  the Park View team and thousands were hand to great the new celebrities. The city of Chula Vista is planning a celebrity parade on Friday. And guess who the celebrities are? The Chula Vista All-Stars and every single player is just that. Celebrities.

The 20 or so team members who began their quest to the title a little over 3 weeks ago were nearly perfect in losing only one game in the whole series. Saturday they won the US Championship and played Taiwan on Sunday to win the whole "shootin" match.

This is the 2nd time a San Diego Little League team has won the title but it had not been since 1961 when a team from the combined areas of El Cajon and La Mesa brought the title home from Williamsport. 48 years is a long time ago but when it comes to little league, people still talk about it and that special someday when the title would return.  They won’t have to wait any longer, the title is here now, the team has returned home and the World Series banner will be proudly on display during the parade of Champions on Friday.

The Chula Vista Park View All-Stars are truly  role models for young generations in all parts of the world that support this character building sport called Little League. The All-Stars, besides winning the World Series title also set a new  world record. Nineteen Home runs in 5 games. Pretty amazing.

And for those that don’t already know this, there is no local, state or federal funding for Little League. Each team has local sponsors that help to pay for their shirts and the rest is funded by families and fund raising events. This is a local grass roots enterprise that relies on very local participation of community builders and leaders for support. And in return for their support, they are assured of the marvelous character building of the players that the Little League enterprise brings forth through the many decades of character building since its inception. No one could dispute that this is a pretty good trade off of value.

Congratulations to the Home Team, The Chula Vista All -Stars.

Awesome and congratulations!  I played in Little League so many years ago and loved it!  Also, the same local Hazel Dell group that I came from made it to he World Series in 2000 and oh my, that fame has lasted for years.  I hope the fame for your youth lasts for years as well.  John

Hooray for them!  Some of those kids are almost pros the way they can play - very exciting to watch!  I'll bet that some of them do wind up as Major-Leaguers.

Hi Brian, I think this is the first time I have ever been re-blogged. How cool is that! Many thanks. The new title and the spirited players certainly have brought a lot pride and joy to our communities in San Diego. With all the crap out there in the world, it certainly is nice to have presented something so positive and with a real " feel good" message.
