Granada, SRV to meet for baseball title in Las Vegas



EBAL schools to collide in Vegas

Granada and San Ramon Valley are separated by about 20 miles. They both play in the East Bay Athletic League. One has yet to lose this season, the other is starting to find its groove.

Saturday night, 500-plus miles from home, they will meet in Las Vegas for the Bishop Gorman Invitational championship.

Granada routed St. Rita-Chicago 12-0 on Friday in a game called after five innings because of the mercy rule. The victory followed a 10-1 triumph over Legend of Parker, Colorado on Thursday.
