Little League city championship Friday

The Menlo-Atherton Little League and the Alpine/West Menlo Little League Majors Division champions and the AAA Division champions will play for the "City Title" on Friday, June 17, said Carla Posthauer of the Menlo-Atherton Little League.

"This is a fun competition for the entire community to watch," she said. "Come out and support your local teams."

The games will be played at Burgess Park in Menlo Park and are scheduled to be played at 4 p.m. (AAA) and 6 p.m. (Majors).

'Superbowls'

Alpine/West Menlo Little League and Menlo-Atherton Little League start the summer baseball tournaments June 18, said Lindsay Bowen, a board member of both Little Leagues.

The first events are the Majors Superbowl and Minor Superbowl, running concurrently, he said. Both winners will be crowned on the first day of summer, June 21.

The Superbowl Tournaments are fashioned after the Central Coast Section High School baseball playoffs "one and done" format, Mr. Bowen said. A team must win four games in four days to be crowned champion of District 52.

Both leagues have entries in the Majors Superbowl, hosted by Hillsborough Little League, and both leagues have entries in the Minors Superbowl, hosted by Foster City Little League. Game time and locations are available on the District 52 Little League website.
