Little League Season Update

Laguna Beach Little League, now in their 67th season, recently completed another successful year with All-Star competition wrapping up this past week. Laguna does not compete in the traditional Little League division (11-12) that culminates in the annual World Series in Williamsport. When the league was formed back in 1952, the focus was on the traditional 11-12 age group organized into “title” teams that drafted new players each year, replacing only those departing. This format was kept in place for 53 seasons ending in 2004. Current teams are all re-drafted each season.More information on the local league can be found on their website at www.beachbaseball.com.
