The the second year in a row, Walnut PONY has the best Pinto 8U team in the West Zone East Region. Manager Jerry Licea’s 8U all-stars beat West Covina Red Tuesday evening 15-8 to take the Region tournament championship. They now move on to Super Regions in Moreno Valley July 9th.
In the other local Region championship game tonight, the Shetland 6U all-stars lost in the championship game to Charter Oak 14-2 but the champion and runner-up in that tournament both advance to the West Zone World Series. That means Walnut skips Super Region and will play next in Simi Valley at the World Series.
