Reality is something they know nothing about. They are still remembering, reliving and being honored for their exploits on baseball fields against the best ball-playing youngsters in the world. These young gentlemen - 17 members of the western champion Canoga Park-Woodland Hills Pony League team and 14 members of the world champion Granada Hills Little League team - have established their right to be called 'the best' and are presently appearing to be feted by service clubs, their parent baseball leagues and their home communities." Photograph caption reads, "Special day - Boys from Pony League team (above) joined in day of festivities that began when they boarded Tanner bus (below) for trip to Pacific Ocean Park, where they enjoyed roller coaster (right)."
