Park View eliminated from Little League World Series after loss to Tennessee

CHULA VISTA, Calif. -- The all-star team from the Chula Vista-based Park View Little League fell to its counterpart from the Goodlettsville Baseball Little League of Goodlettsville, Tennessee, 4-2 Tuesday in an elimination game in the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, a loss that ended the team's participation in the tournament.

Goodlettsville, the Southeast Region champion, lost 3-1 Monday to the all-star team from the Maine-Endwell Little League of Endwell, New York, the Mid-Atlantic Region champion, forcing it into an elimination game.

Park View played for the first time since Saturday's 5-0 victory over the all-star team from the McAllister Park American Little League that kept it in contention for the world championship.

Park View was supposed to play Monday, but rain Sunday in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania forced suspension of play and the rescheduling of games originally planned for Sunday and Monday.

A loss in its opening game of the World Series put Park View in a must-win situation in the modified double-elimination tournament.

Dozens of fans packed the Buffalo Wild Wings in Eastlake Tuesday to watch the Chula Vista-based Park View Little League elimination game.

“The boys fought. They’ve done that all season. They didn’t give up. No matter what, win or lose, we’re proud of them,” said Sarah Camacho.

Park View Little League is planning a homecoming for the team after its return to Chula Vista.
