At the Super Regions in Garden Grove, the Pinto A/8U team was finally eliminated after battling through the losers bracket all weekend to come within a game of playing for the right to go to the West Zone Pinto World Series in San Jose. Corona defeated them 7-5 in another typical hard fought battle by Walnutâ€™s 8 year old all-stars.
The Shetland Region in Walnut saw our Shetland B team get one more shot at going to that divisionâ€™s SoCal World Series but they fell short to West Covina Red 5 by a score of 21-11. In the other game, West Covina White won and will move on to Tuesday nightâ€™s championship game against Charter Oak.
