VOLUME 11 NO. 29 

Since it’s inception in 
1958, Sierra Madre 
11/12s division has 
never won District 17 

On Sunday night July 9, Sierra 
Madre’s 2017 11/12-year old Little 
League All-Stars became the City’s 
first group of boys to ever win the 
District 17 Championship. The win 
came after 6 games against other 
teams in the District (comprising of 
San Marino, Pasadena Southwest, 
Central Altadena, East Altadena, 
Arcadia National, Arcadia American... 

Their fairytale journey began on 
June 29th when they faced Central 

Jack Stipa began the game and 
pitched four innings with three 
strikeouts. Daniel Latshaw went 4 
for 4; singling in the first and second 
innings, and hitting two doubles. 
With Latshaw on base in the 
first inning, Jack Stipa hit a home-
run bringing in three runs. In total 
Stipa had 5 RBIs in the game. Sierra 
Madre scored four runs in the 
third inning thanks to a double by 
David Mysza and a single by Jack 
Stipa. In total, the team had 13 hits, 
including hits by Casey Skett, Nolan 
Aldoroty, and Justin Lee. Latshaw 
came in to pitch the last two innings, 
struck out 4, and gave up no 
hits. At the end of 6 innings Sierra 
Madre won 12-4.

fondly refer to themselves, faced
