Del Mar Powerhouse 13U hosts Team Korea on U.S. tour
The Del Mar Powerhouse 13U team hosted Team Korea Feb. 12 in a friendly scrimmage at Del Mar Heights Elementary School. The Korean National team is comprised of 13-year- olds from last year’s International Little League World Series Championship team, along with 12-year-olds slated to play on this year’s squad. Before the game, there was a customary exchange of gifts between the two teams, and the game was ultimately called on account of darkness after five-and-a-half of the scheduled seven innings. Team Korea is in the area for a total of two weeks, playing a range of teams at various locations.
In it’s 14th season, Del Mar Powerhouse attracts top athletes from throughout San Diego and is home to seven competitive teams for the 2014/15 season. Teams from ages 8U to high school compete throughout Southern California and in national youth tournaments and showcase events. Team tryouts are held each June with mid-season tryouts as needed. Please contact the team at firstname.lastname@example.org for more specifics.
