From Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez Desk – Honor of Designating “The North Valley Broncos Square”

Yesterday, I had the honor of designating the intersection of Dronfield Ave. and Osborne St. in Pacoima as “The North Valley Broncos Square.” The Pacoima Little League Field is located at that intersection and is where the North Valley Broncos, the first all-black baseball team to reach the Little League World Series, practiced.

Two individuals from the historic North Valley Broncos team of 1965 were in attendance—Rickie Chapron and Anthony Davis—and they both spoke about the racism they faced on and off the ball field. Rickie and Anthony are living proof that you would be making a huge mistake if you count out anyone from making it big here in the Northeast San Fernando Valley!
