Chico Nuts Beat Petaluma Twice, Capture State Title

For the second time in four years, the Chico Nuts American Legion baseball team is your state champion!

Chico came into the championship round of the double-elimination state tournament in Yountville on Saturday, August 3rd, needing to beat Petaluma twice in order to win it all.

Petaluma is the same team that beat Chico in the Area One state title game last week, as well as in a winner's bracket game of the state tournament on Friday, August 1st.

Sure enough, Chico exacted revenge on Petaluma by winning game one, 7-6 in 11 innings, and game two, 5-2.

With the state title in tow, Chico qualifies for the upcoming West Regionals in Surprise, AZ.

Chico won the state title back in 2011 as well.

Congratulations to the Nuts!
