Locals will gather Thursday evening for viewing parties to cheer on the Park View Little League (PVLL) of Chula Vista, in one of two games that could qualify the team for the Little League World Series (LLWS).
The SoCal champs will face off at 6 p.m., with PVLL playing against Hawaii. That's also when both viewing parties will kick off. One party will gather at Salucita Bar & Grill on 4110 Bonita Rd. in Bonita, and another viewing party will take place at Oggi's Pizza and Brewing on 2130 Birch Road in Chula Vista.
At both events, spirit gear will be sold and part of the proceeds from food sales will be donated to the team, according to the Facebook page of PVLL.
If the team wins Thursday night's game and one more match after that, PVLL could head off to LLWS in Williamsport, Pennsylvania later this month.
