By Joe Snyder

The Holly Park Major Little League All-Star Baseball team began the District 37 Tournament by losing a shootout to Westchester 12-10 last Saturday at Holly Park Little League.

Ryu Byrde had a fine pitching performance. With the bat, Byrde had three hits and drove in three runs. Peyton Tate went 2-for-3 that included two triples, two runs batted in and two runs scored.

“The kids fought hard,” Holly Park coach Eban Jackson said. “Westchester had a few more good guys.”

Holly Park, which includes players from Gardena, Hawthorne, Inglewood and the Los Angeles-Athens District, was to play either Aviation from Del Aire or Wiseburn of Hawthorne today at 7:30 p.m. at Carl Nielsen Youth Sports Park in Westchester.
