All eyes were on the All Star team “Stampede” from Los Alamitos Youth Baseball this weekend during the Bronco World Series held at the fields situated on the California National Guard’s Joint Forces Training Base.
The highly touted squad, which was favored early on to win the entire thing, did just that Monday night before a jam-packed crowd of supporters.
Los Al defeated Puerto Rico 6-3 in the championship match, and beat one of the top travel ball teams in the country twice to earn a place in the final.
“I can’t think of a better way to end my time here,” said outgoing LAYB President Brian Gorman.
One of Gorman’s most pivotal achievement during his time as president was bringing the Bronco World Series to Los Al. Gorman has also helped the league rise among the top four in the country. “Stampede’s” World Series title is the first one since 1983 and is the fourth in the LAYB’s history.
