The LAYB Youth baseball fields at “The Base” will again play host for the fourth time for PONY baseball’s Bronco Division World Series.
As the host team, the LAYB squad automatically gets to play i the tournament which they won two years ago.
Patch has more information in their story.
The base has hosted youth baseball since 1961 when the Los Alamitos-Rossmoor Pony Division began playing games there. The following year the Rossmoor Little League which had been playing its games at four different locations in its first four seasons moved all their games to the base. The Little League played first at a vacant lot at Bradbury and Montecito and then at the yet to be built Rush School vacant lot, the never-built Wilson School site (now Rossmoor Park) and a field at Cerritos off Katella. The League changed its name to Los Alamitos-Rossmoor Junion Baseball League and then in the late 1990s — at the insistence of base authorities — it merged with the older Pony an Bronco Leagues to become Los Alamitos Youth Baseball.
