CHULA VISTA, Calif. (KGTV) – The Park View baseball team out of Chula Vista is getting the star treatment Thursday night as they continue their quest to reach the Little League World Series.

From 5 p.m.-7:30 p.m., a send-off rally will be held for the team, dubbed the “Green Monsters,” as they head to San Bernardino for the Little League West Regional.

The rally will be held at Greg Rogers Park (1200 Oleander Ave., Chula Vista).

Park View reached regional play by virtue of their Southern California Championship tournament win last weekend in Aliso Viejo.
