TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

The summer baseball season officially came to an end Sunday with the closure of the Little League World Series.

Once again Tucson had youth baseball players who made dents on the national scene this summer.

8th grader Mario Bejarano tossed a no-hitter Friday for the Southwest squad at USA Baseball’s 14-under National Identification Series.

While Michael Escalante played in the National Youth Baseball Congress 12-under All-Star game in July at Baseball Heaven on Long Island, New York.
