GLENDALE — It was a banner year for local baseball and softball Little League teams in the various 2010 District 16 All-Star Tournaments, evidenced by the large number of teams that will take part in Section 2 Tournaments across Southern California beginning today.
Four area All-Star baseball teams and three softball teams will battle the best squads from adjoining districts for the right to move on to the Division Tournaments.
Most of the aforementioned teams will begin their tournaments on Saturday, but Crescenta Valley 9-10 softball and Foothill 10-11 softball get underway today in Tehachapi and El Dorado, respectively.
"I don't know what's gonna happen out there in the desert," said Foothill Manager Tyson Howard, whose team defeated the CV All-Stars, 10-0, on Wednesday to reach the Section 2 Tournament, where it will open at 6 p.m. against the District 40 champion. "We'd like to win the section, that's the goal."
