The second stage of Little League playoff action begins this weekend. You can compare this weekend play to the little league version of the North Coast Section playoffs, although it does take up a little more territory then those playoffs do.
There are five age groups with the younger versions dominated by Petaluma.
The 9-10 year old and 11-12 year old bracket District 35 Champion was won by Petaluma Valley.
The 10-11 year old champion is Petaluma National.
Those three brackets are the classic little league with the sixty foot bases. The other two divisions are Junior and Seniors, which has the high school and up level of 90 foot bases.
The District 35 Junior Champion is Mark West, the Senior’s is El Molino.
District 35 is hosting the Juniors Tournament in Healdsburg. That tournament begins Friday at 6 pm with Mark West’s first game on Sunday at 11 AM.
