Penn Valley Little League is proud to announce their 2013 Intermediate division All-Stars. The boys are from Bear River, Nevada City as well as Penn Valley Little League.  The local team will play in the Section tournament Friday at New York Creek Park in El Dorado Hills where they will suit up against a team from Antelope who represents District 6 while the Penn Valley All-Stars will represent District 11. 


Aaron Sasville, Sam Hopper, Nick Simms, Matt Hayward, Wyatt Hook, Ryan Schmittel, Wyatt Williges, Josia Cregar, Trae Nix, Peytom McGovern, Niki South, Dean Hopper and James Nolen.

This is the first year for this type of Little League team as well as the tournament where the pitcher throws from 50 feet and the base runners run 70 feet. The division is also know as 50/70. Click here for Little League International's FAQs.

During the regular season this same team played under the name of the Dirtbags often playing many doubleheaders on Sundays throughout the spring. The Union Newspaper ran a game story on April 17 (click here to read). All the boys played on the "Bags" as well as playing for either a Majors or Juniors team.

Steve Smith who is District 11's District Administrator has been very supportive to this newly developed Little League product which holds it's inaugural World Series in Livermore CA. July 30 to August 5th. There will be 10 teams from around the world competing at this event, 6 teams from the US (Central, East, Southeast, Southwest, West, and Host team from CA District 57) as well as 4 International teams (Asia-Pacific, Canada, Latin America, and Puerto Rico).

Please check back as I will post the team's progress on the journey to Livermore California.
