The Paso Robles Pinto Crimson baseball team is about to make city history. The Paso Robles Youth Baseball team that includes kids ages 6 to 9 years old plays is headed to the PONY World Series in Monterey. This is the first time the city is sending a team to the World Series.
"It's really cool to go to the World Series and play in this big, huge tournament and we can win a big, huge trophy home," said 6 year old catcher Reagan McCluskey.
The team earned a berth with an undefeated run to Sectional and Regional titles.
"I just really wanted to go this year because the other two years we haven't been that good and it's just been fun playing against all the other teams," said Connor Neall. The nine year old first baseman credited the squad's team-first mentality for its success.
"All of us can hit like to the outfield or to the infield and get doubles and triples. And our fielding is really good," said second baseman Weston Hooten.
The World Series opens Thursday and includes teams from the Bay Area, Nevada and Hawaii.
