San Diego Chargers' Luis Castillo interviews Oscar Castro and Bradley Roberto of the world champion Park View little league team of Chula Vista, Calif. at the Chargers' practice facility Tuesday, Sept. 1 in San Diego.
Park View's Blue Bombers got a heroes' welcome they returned to Chula Vista, and on Tuesday they got a chance to meet some of their heroes.
The Little Leaguers went out Tuesday to Murphy Canyon to watch the Chargers practice. It was tough to tell who was more excited, the kids or the Chargers, who high-fived each other upon greeting. All the Chargers' star players were out for the meet-and-greet, and the boys and their family members were excited to take pictures with the Chargers.
According to Charger's quarterback Philip Rivers, it was an honor for the Chargers to meet a world champion team.
"I know everyone is hoping that this championship meeting will rub off on the Chargers as the team tries to win it's first Super Bowl," Rivers said.
After all the handshakes were shaken and pictures were taken, the Chargers signed footballs for the Blue Bombers.
The party's just getting started for Chula Vista's boys of summer, who have been invited to the White House to meet the president and will also be feted Friday with a rally at Southwestern College in Chula Vista.
