Meehan gives classic effort for Alpine-West Menlo in loss

 

The sounds of the late Wilson Pickett's "Mustang Sally" opened Tuesday night's District 52 Little League 10-11-year-old all-stars title game at Marina Field in Belmont.

That seemed to be a good omen for Alpine-West Menlo starter Sal Meehan, who is often referred to by league mates by the Pickett classic.

Facing unbeaten Belmont-Redwood Shores, Meehan gave as much as he could on the mound, but Alpine fell, 10-0, in four innings.

Alpine, which had lost, 12-3, to Belmont-RS on Saturday, had to win to force a showdown game on Wednesday. Alpine was looking for its first 11-year-old district title since 2009.
