Sweetwater All-Stars play in 1st World Series game
BONITA, Calif. — The Sweetwater Valley Little League all-star team is set play in the Little League World Series today in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania, a day after rain postponed play.
The team was scheduled to begin play in the 16- team tournament Thursday, but its game was postponed because of rain, along with the other three games planned for the day.
All 16 teams are scheduled to begin play in the modified double- elimination tournament today.

Bonita-based Sweetwater Valley is 16-0 in its four tournaments, including outscoring its four opponents, 50-22, in the West Regional to become the 11th team from San Diego County to qualify for the Little League World Series.
