The Los Alamos County Majors All-Star baseball team is heading to the state tournament this weekend with hopes of advancing to the regional playoffs.
The Los Alamos Majors — comprised of 11- and 12-year-old players — will start state play Saturday when it faces a tough opponent in Clovis. Win or lose, Los Alamos will play Sunday night.
The state tournament is being played in Carlsbad.
To qualify for the state tournament, the Los Alamos All-Stars won the District 1 tournament last week in Santa Fe, and did so in impressive fashion.
Los Alamos outscored its semifinal and final round opponents, Santa Fe Metro and Española, by a combined 54-2. In Saturday’s championship game, Los Alamos earned a 20-0 shutout victory over Española to clinch a berth in state.
All-Star manager Alex Garcia said the nucleus of this team is the same as a team he helped guide to state in 2013.
In preparation for the state tournament, Garcia said his team would mostly be working on fundamentals in order to stay sharp.
From top-to-bottom of the batting order, Los Alamos swung the bat very well in district, while the team’s pitching has also been very solid throughout the postseason.
