Claremont All Stars battle it out with La Verne

The 12-year-old Claremont All Stars Little League team played against the La Verne All Stars Tuesday at College Park. La Verne got some great pitching from Cody White, who threw a no hitter for three innings leading his team to a 6-1 victory over Claremont.

It is a double elimination tournament, so Claremont had one more chance to advance in a rematch with La Verne after press time on Wednesday. The 11- and 10-year-old All Stars will have championship games later in the week.

As an added bonus the standing room only crowd at the game was treated to a heartfelt rendition of the Star Spangled Banner by eight-year-old Malia Mendez.
