The California Bandits, an 11U team based out of Downey, won the gold medal at the Rawlings International Salute to Baseball Tournament last week in Florida. The international tournament featured teams from Panama, Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic, and other teams from the U.S. The Bandits outscored their opponents 78-7 and won all of their games via mercy rule. “”We want to thank the Downey City Council members, Downey Police Officers Association and the Parks and Recreation Department for their continued support in making this trip a reality for these young men,” the team said in a statement.
