A group of ballplayers came home with second place honors, the highest ranking in tournament play in team history.
The Coast Little League Tournament of Stars (8-10 year-olds) All Star team advanced to the District 65 championship game on Tuesday, June 27 against the Orcutt National Tournament of Stars All Star team. It was a hard-fought game with Coast coming up short in the end, but it capped off a great tournament run.
This was the first time a Coast Little League TOS team made it to the District-65 finals. It was also the first of any Coast Little League All Star team to advance this far since 2019. The team ended their All-Star season with a record of 5-2 with their only losses coming against the eventual champions, Orcutt National. They beat teams representing Atascadero, Arroyo Grande, Orcutt American and Lompoc on their way to the second-place finish.
The Coast Little League Fall baseball season starts in early September with registration starting July 15 at coastll.com.
