School Honors Little League World Champs

The school that most of the Park View Little League players attend held an assembly Wednesday to honor their victory in the Little League World Series.

The players missed nearly a month of classes at Rancho del Rey Middle School while playing in tournaments in San Bernardino and South Williamsport, Pa.

They returned to Chula Vista late Monday night to a raucous welcome at the Southwestern College football field.

On Tuesday, they were invited to the San Diego Chargers football facility to watch practice.

They will be honored at a community rally Friday, again at Southwestern College.

The Park View squad, nicknamed the Blue Bombers, defeated a team from San Antonio last Saturday for the United States championship, then downed Taoyuan, Taiwan, 6-3 Sunday for the Little League World Series crown.
