This year the park hosted the Bronco Division Sectional Tournament, featuring teams of eleven and twelve year-old boys from Long Beach, Torrance, Pico Rivera, and Norwalk, as well as Santa Monica.

The park was festooned with bunting as for any important baseball series, and shirtsleeve crowds watched a weekend of exciting baseball.

The Santa Monica team played four games in three days, including two one-run victories on Sunday. Santa Monica defeated Norwalk 2-1 in the final, to advance to the next level tournament, which will be held starting Wednesday in Simi Valley. For more information visit http://www.smpony.com/
