The combined MBLL/HBLL Seniors All-Star team, comprised of 14-16 year-olds, on June 28th won the District 36 Tournament two games to one over a strong Redondo Beach team. After dropping the opener in a close game 4-2, the team held on to win game two 11-10 after leading 11-3. The deciding game was again close, but MBLL/HBLL pulled away for a 6-2 win to capture the title.

Manager Aaron Meyers was pleased with the game-to-game improvement and the close team chemistry the boys demonstrated even when times were tough. The Seniors team will next compete in the Section 4 Tournament, hosted by MBLL at the Marine Avenue Complex (1641 Marine Avenue, MB), with their first game on Sunday, July 2nd at 4:00pm.
