This Orange County High School Baseball Team Just Won Its First League Title in 54 Years

The final stretch of the year has arrived for more than 200 high school baseball teams across Orange County.

This time of year is a weekly fight to extend the season as long as possible until they are the last team standing.

Sometimes you win, sometimes you don’t. Sometimes things go according to plan, sometimes they fall apart before your eyes.

That’s not just life, that’s baseball. 

And while the season ended for one Division 7 program this week, it was a season unlike any other for these Fountain Valley families.

All across the country, conference titles & championship banners hang from the walls or ceilings inside school gymnasiums. Athletes and teams are immortalized, cementing legacies in the years printed on the fabric for generations to see. 

The banner that displayed Los Amigos High School’s league championships for baseball inside the gymnasium was empty for the last 54 years.

It won’t be for much longer.
