Pitching depth is essential for teams to make it out of the consolation bracket, and Manteca Little League's major division A's proved on Tuesday that they have no shortage of arms in their 6-1 victory over the Lathrop Giants at Neil Hafley School.
Before I was even 200 kilometers from the Skeena River, I knew fishing would be tough. Everything draining into it was rich and roaring. The Skeena would be a torrent. I was right, but I made myself a sandwich and waded out a couple feet to toss in the biggest fly in my box anyway.

Alex Garcia is 65 pounds worth of proof that perseverance pays off. The 11-year-old from Lathrop and nephew of former Manteca High standouts Vince and Benny Garcia steadily improved on the wrestling mat all season, and it culminated into an impressive second-place finish in the Dave Schultz Kids Freestyle State Tournament at Selland Arena in Fresno this past weekend. The youngest of Garcia grapplers had to get by two combatants he previously had trouble with ...
The Red Sox beat the Angels, 12-6, Tuesday at Gillen Field to claim the Northgate Little League Minors Division championship.
For a split second I was on Mars. There were noises. I was in some sort of cocoon, simultaneously hot and cold. I was in my tent, in the back of my truck 25 miles north of the Washington border.
