Little Leaguers throughout the Imperial Valley are wrapping up their regular seasons and gearing up for inter-city championship play.
On June 10 the District 22 minor league tourney will begin, with the majors to follow June 19, 9-10-year-old all-stars July 1 and 11-12-year-old all-stars July 10. All tournaments are double-elimination.
Participating organizations include Calexico, Imperial, Brawley, El Centro, Holtville, Sunbeam and Seaview little leagues.
Sunbeam president Gary Hevener, whose organization will host the minor and major tourneys at Sunbeam Lake in Seeley, said, "We look forward to playoffs. Right now we're in doing our own to see who we're going to send. Tonight's (Saturday) the best two-out-of-three playoff format to see who's going to represent Sunbeam.
"The city championship — not so much the all-star games — have always been bragging rights of the Valley," he said.
