BURBANK — The Burbank Little League Junior Softball team had to battle to win its opening-round game in the Section 2 Tournament last week. However, once they had the first-game jitters out of the way, the locals were able to dominate play in the next two games — earning two shutouts and outscoring their opponents, 19-0 — to win the tournament championship Sunday. “This is a very good group,” Burbank Manager Albert Hernandez said. “We have a good group of pitchers, some talented starters and a good number of girls who can come off the bench to help us. “What’s also great is that we have a diverse group, age wise.

GLENDALE -- Burroughs High's Ryanne Hodgins and Burbank's Kristin Talamantes are recognized as two of the best softball players in the Foothill League.
