Let the celebration begin
Alameda's Adam Chan, left, and Max Turner exult after recording the final out of their 3-2 win over North Oakland in the California Little League District 4 International Tournament 11-12 Division championship game. Alameda advanced to the Section 1 Tournament in Dixon, where they beat Fairfield Pacific 5-1 on July 13 and 9-6 over Petaluma Valley on July 14. In the latter game, Alameda rallied from a 6-0 fifth-inning deficit. Alameda was edged by Twin Cities 2-1 in a winner's bracket semifinal game on July 15 and was eliminated from the tournament with a loss to Vacaville Central on July 16.
