Grijalva issued a letter — with his Congressional letterhead — today to the Sunnyside Little League team challenging for a spot in the Little League World Series. Sunnyside plays Northern California tonight at 6 on ESPN for the chance to advance to tomorrow night’s regional championship game against Hawaii.
