It’s almost become it’s own summer tradition — gathering at Oggi’s to cheer for the local Little League team as they try to bring home another Little League World Series title. In 2009 it was Parkview Little League. Then it was Eastlake Little League in 2013 which won the national title. Now it’s the Sweetwater Valley Little League team that everyone in the community is rallying around. The Sweetwater Valley squad features five boys from Eastlake Middle School: Walker Lannom, Dante Schmid, Levi Mendez and Preston Fleming. With three teams from the South County having participated in the Little League World Series during the last six years, you have to wonder if there is something special in the water — or the food.
