Congratulations to 10U and 12U District Champions!
A great day was had by all at Glendora Lassie League's Opening Day on March 5, 2016.
The Opening Day Committee (Becky Speh, Dana Edwards, Jennifer King, Anise Smith and Lenny Chen) did a great job recruiting vendors offering fun items to purchase and delicious treats to taste. League sponsors set up booths offering coupons and information about their products.
Our fabulous softball players danced to music before parading across the field showing their team spirit. The adorable 6U teams were invited up waving American flags while Elizabeth Crowther sang the National Anthem. Mayor Karen Davis welcomed the players and their parents while Councilmember Mendell Thompson and Community Services Director were there supporting GLL, as well. Last year's All Star District Champion 10U and 12U teams were introduced and acknowledged for their successful All Star season.

I would like to take the opportunity to introduce myself. My name is Leonard Chen, the new Director of Fundraising. Both of my daughters joined the Glendora Lassie League last year and I can’t begin to describe to you how rewarding and fun of an experience it was. Our only regret was that we didn’t have them participate in the League earlier. They learned what it was like to work in a team environment, but at the same time, they learned and improved in every aspect of their individual game from hitting to fielding. All in all, this is just a small reason why the League continues to demonstrate its place as an important pillar in the community.
Your support is essential to the success of the League. Please click here to fill out the sponsorship application (under Document/Forms) to be a GLL Sponsor! If you have any questions about it, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Glendora softball made a top notch showing in ASA’s District Tournament in Rancho Cucamonga June 26-28, 2015. The 12U and 10U teams fought hard for district championships while 14U battled for a second place finish. Ron Bush, 12U team manager, saw his team undefeated throughout the tournament beating Chino 12-11 in the championship game. Going into the bottom of the 7th inning down 11-6, the girls battled back one at a time until Monique Moreno hit a triple to end the game. The 10U team was down 4-0, until the 5th inning batting almost twice through the lineup scoring eight runs to win 10-4 with the championship title against Corona. Corona had to play four games on Sunday and were tired but played hard and never gave up. Amador Manzano, 14U manager, saw his team down 7-0 after the 1st inning. The girls battled back to tie the score in the 5th. They gave up two runs “but our girls never quit,” said Manzano. Glendora had the tying runs on in the bottom of the 7th but came up short taking second place and still qualifying for States along with their 10U and 12U teams.
Teams travel to Lancaster to compete in States July 10, 2015.
