For the first time this year, the La Cañada 14U Tournament Team did not lose in the championship game of a tournament. That?s because the team fell short of the championship game this weekend, losing to San Bernardino in the semifinals of the 16th Annual Diamond Bar All-Star Tournament. However, there were silver linings: La Cañada lost to San Bernardino, 7-2, but became the first team to score any runs off the Inland Empire powerhouse, which had outscored its opponents 24-0 in its three previous games.

And, in the end, they think they just might have solved the case that has been cold for more than nine years.
