Little Leaguers to open 11-12 tourney in Wall
The Pecos 11-12 year old Little League All-Stars will be spending next
weekend in the San Angelo area, and hope to be back there a few days later
for the second half of the District 4 Tournament.
Pecos will open play about 10 miles southeast of San Angelo, in Wall,
on Saturday, July 6 against either the host Wall Little Leaguers or Ballinger,
who open tournament play on the Fourth of July. The winner of Saturday's
game will face the winner of the opening round game between San Angelo
Northern and Winters, in a game scheduled for 11 a.m. on July 7.
If Pecos wins that game, they would advance to the tournament semifinals
on July 12 at San Angelo Northern. However, if Pecos loses their opening
game on July 6 they would drop into a 2 p.m. elimnation round game the
following day, and if they stay alive there would have to win again, at
5 p.m. that afternoon, in order to advance to the next round of the tournament.
Coach Ray Palomino said most of the players on this year's team were
members of the 9-10 year old Little League squad two years ago that lost
to San Angelo Northern. "We have seven 12-year-olds and four 11-year olds
on this team," he said. "All of them have All-Star experience except for
Gino (Leos) and Martin (Jasso)."
Palomino and Moises Arenivas are the coaches for this year's team, while
Richard Chavez is the manager. The other players on the team are Chris
Sotelo, Gerald Saenz, Tony Reyes, Jr., Timo Reyes, Vincent Palomino, Juan
Garza, James Garcia, Lucas Chavez, Juan Chavez and Drake Bradley.
The finals for the District 4 Tournament are scheduled for July 13 and
14, if necessary, and the winner of the tournament will advance to the
Region I Sectional Tournament, which will be held in Midland this year,
Play opens this weekend for the 9-10 year old Little League All-Stars
at the Northern Little League complex. Pecos will face the winner of the
Ballinger-San Angelo Northern game at 5 p.m. on Friday, with the winner
of that game advances to the area round semifinal game at 8 p.m. on Saturday
versus either San Angelo Southern or North Concho. The winner of that game
automatically moves on to the championship semifinals on the Fourth of
July at San Angelo Western.
If Pecos loses on Friday, they'll play elimination round game on Saturday
at 5 p.m., while the winner of that game will play the loser of Saturday's
8 p.m. game for the right to remain alive in a 1 p.m. game on Sunday.
