    The Mustang B and Pinto A teams are doing great!
    How about some more recognition for the Bronco B team? They have names also and they played their hearts out all weekend representing Morgan Hill. They pitched, defended, got hits and scored runs just like the Mustangs and Pintos.
    They are only two wins away from advancing to the next tournament in Brentwood.
