At the present time the Erskine Fire burning in Lake Isabella has affected Kern River Valley Little League Board members, managers, coaches and players. District 51 and the Leagues in the District would like to offer our prayers and hopes to all those affected by this terrible incident. This is a terrible reminder that Little League is very simply a game and that there are more important things in life than winning or losing a game.
