WATSONVILLE - For the last ten years River Park and the leagues from Turlock would battle it out in the final games of the district 10 all star tournaments. Then early this year Little League International decided to split up district 10 in the Central Valley. Then they split up section 6. This sent Turlock to district 73 in section 6 and River Park and district 10 to section 7.

Now if River Park was going to meet their rivals from Turlock it would have to be in a division (state) tournament. Saturday the 11's met up in Watsonville's division tournament and there is a chance the 12's could face each other in the 12 year-old division tournament in Fremont some time this week.

 SELMA - It was everything a Little League game isn't suppose to be but in the end dirty play doesn't pay off for Visalia National and they head home from the Section 7 Little League Tournament with their tails between their legs. Fresno's River Park Little League twelve year-old team advances to the state championship for the third year in a row.

It's always interesting whenever a River Park and Visalia team meet up in the sectional tournaments. The Visalia parents are usually loud and obnoxious. The River Park parents are usually loud and colorful. At the four games BVN covered this season the Visalia parents didn't disappoint and it seems they have passed their lack of "Good Sportsmanship" off to their children on the field.
