Thanks to the support from the community, a win or lose, the  boys are already champions in their eyes. 

Park View, the Southern California champion, is 18-2 in its four tournaments. It will face the all-star team from the Johnston Little League of Johnston Iowa, the Midwest Region champion, Friday in the Little League World Series in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
