El Monte National Little League AAA Pirates played the AAA Marilins this past weekend. It was a close game and the Pirates played a valiant game but in the last inning the Marlins took the game by 1 point.
The Pirates have come a long way since the little league season began on March 15th, opening day. Under the intense and skilled leadership of the Team Manager Jesus “Chuy” Delgado and Coach Irvin Gaona, and Assistant Coaches Marco Velasco, Cesar Amaya and Jay Padilla; the Pirates have soared in their abilities, skill level and sportsmanship. The Team Mom’s,Yajaira Delgado and Yuri Montelongo have made our practices, fundraisers events possible with their hard work and dedication to the kids and families of the Pirates. The Pirates practice twice per week with at least 2 games per week as well. The kids have so much fun and do not worry if they win or lose a game, as the coaches teach them to just have fun and enjoy the game. In doing so, they all are winners. This team would not be possible if it were not for the amazing kids that are playing; Celeste Huerta, Manual Montelongo, Keanu Amaya, Degas Peters, Ricardo Ramos Jr., Noel Vargas, Jesus Delgado, Louis Ruiz, Adam Casanova, Julian Hernandez and Anthony Velasco; these kids make little league the amazing sport it is today.
