The Turlock Little League Major’s All-Star teams have been put together, announced, and the American League players were taking team pictures at Pedretti Park before Turlock gets ready to play their first games this weekend.
For the American League, coaches picked players from their teams who they thought could compete on the all-star level. The nominated players for each age group (10, 11, and 12 year olds) were then voted on by all the managers and the top 13 players for each age group would make up the all-star teams.
On the National League side, players from each age group voted the first 4 players of each all-star team on to the roster and then the managers from all the teams chose the rest of the 9 players that make up the 13 player roster.
The Turlock Major’s All-Stars play their first games in Chowchilla when the 10’s and 12’s play on Saturday at 10am.
The Turlock All-Star teams compete against other all-star teams in the region and try to win their way to the Little League World Series held in South Williamsport, Pennsylvania.
Out of about 109 players in the Turlock American Major League and 108 players in the Turlock National Major League, the Turlock All-Stars rosters are as follows.
Baljit Singh Athwal, a co-owner of Pop-N-Cork Liquors and an alleged person of interest in the Korey Kauffman murder case, protested with family and friends Saturday outside of the Turlock Public Safety Facility at the corner of W. Olive and N. Broadway avenues. Touting signs reading “We want justice” and “We want FBI,” Athwal explained that the protest was made in an effort to clear his name in the Kauffman case and “seek justice.” Family there supporting Baljit and his brother Daljit, also an alleged person of interest in the case, explained their frustrations with the way police have handled the situation.
New details have emerged in the March 3 raids of both Pop-N-Cork locations in Turlock by the Stanislaus County Sheriff’s Department as part of the investigation into the murder of Korey Kauffman. Along with the raids of the businesses, the homes of Pop-N-Cork owner Baljit Singh Athwal (Bobby) and his brother Daljit Singh Athwal (Dee) were searched the same morning. Law enforcement came in with guns pointed, scaring Baljit Athwal’s children, including his 8-year-old son who had to see a school counselor, he said.
Ruben Aguilar has confirmed he will “definitely” seek legal action against the Turlock Unified School District, following a Feb. 27 incident where his six-year-old son was stabbed in the throat by a fellow classmate. “Of course I'm going to sue because if I don't sue them and hold them accountable, then nothing is going to change,” he said. “I want the kid who stabbed my son removed from the school and I want something to happen to the principal and other people (both at the school and the district office) who ignored me.” School administrators allegedly failed to act after Aguilar informed them repeatedly that his boy was being bullied. The bully is the same boy who allegedly stabbed Aguilar’s son.
