    An all-Meadow City theme played out in multiple championship games this week at the District 4 Little League tournaments in Santa Rosa.

    Las Vegas Little League’s 11-12 softball team defeated La Plaza in a competitive 8-5 final on Wednesday to win that division championship.

    Las Vegas also beat La Plaza in the 8-10 softball championship game, taking an 8-3 victory as ace Taylor Quintana finished a three-game run with 41 total strikeouts.

    But the west-siders broke through on the baseball diamond.

    Umpire rescues woman on bridge
    PITTSBURGH — John Tumpane can’t explain why he approached the woman as she hopped over the railing of the Roberto Clemente Bridge.

    The woman told Tumpane she just wanted to get a better view of the Allegheny River below. The look on her face and the tone of her voice suggested otherwise to Tumpane, a major league baseball umpire in town to work the series between the Pittsburgh Pirates and the Tampa Bay Rays.

  • Bringin’ home the banners

    With three championship banners and counting in the first three days of the District 4 Little League tournaments, the Meadow City is well on its way to another impressive haul this summer.

    Less than one full day into the tournaments, Las Vegas had its first champion already crowned.

    The 9-11 softball all-stars from Las Vegas Little League hoisted the banner in that division on Saturday not long after opening ceremonies. With no opponents to contend with in the bracket, the team advances to state in July.
