LAS VEGAS -- The community is invited to help welcome home the Mountain Ridge Little League players and coaching staff from the Little League World Series, where the team finished second in the nation and fourth in the world.
The team is expected to land at about 8:30 p.m. at McCarran International Airport. The public is invited to meet the players and coaches as they enter the baggage claim area in McCarran’s Terminal 1, where there will be some brief remarks from Coach Ashton Cave, a Clark County Fire Department firefighter.
The Mountain Ridge team is the first Little League team from Nevada to make it to the Little League World Series tournament in Williamsport, Penn. The team achieved an impressive string of victories, overwhelming opponents with a powerful offense backed by strong pitching and solid defense.
To help welcome home the ballplayers and their coaches, firefighters from McCarran’s Clark County Fire Station 13 will douse the aircraft with a ceremonial water cannon salute as it taxis to the gate.
The public can get the first look at the team in the baggage claim area.
