The So Cal Sparrows are coming off a successful 2018 summer season where they saw themselves at the top of the Southern Division standings and in the Sunset League Playoffs,

The Sparrows accomplished both feats for the first time in organizational history; Prior to the 2018 summer, Coach Davis predicted an S.B.L. Championship, unfortunately the Sparrows fell short of that goal, but 2019 summer looks promising.

With a new summer fast approaching another question has been raised, "Will the Sparrows win the S.B.L. Championship in 2019?" Coach Davis' answer to that question was and always be "Yes! We play to win the game, if we aren’t playing to win, then why are we playing?"  

Look out for the Sparrows as they are on the move, DESTINATION CAL - STATE FULLERTON AND THE S.B.L. CHAMPIONSHIP TITLE.
