Baseball: Chatsworth is returning to National Classic

August 26, 2010 |  9:01 am

The debate about whether City Section teams can play well against Southern Section teams is about to be renewed next spring, because eight-time City Section champion Chatsworth has agreed to enter the National Classic for the first time since Tom Meusborn became coach in 1990.

The National Classic will be held April 18-21 in Orange County. Chatsworth has canceled its annual trip to play in a tournament in Las Vegas to participate in the National Classic, which also has commitments from Huntington Beach Edison, Cypress, La Puente Bishop Amat and West Hills Chaminade.

Chatsworth has lots of pitching depth next season, which is important for the National Classic.

"Pitching should give us an opportunity," Meusborn said.

Because the tournament is being played before Easter, Chatsworth was able to add it to its schedule.
