Baseball: Dodger Stadium will host championships

Dodger Stadium will host both CIF-Southern Section and City Section baseball championships in June, the Southern Section announced Wednesday.

Southern Section Divisions 1 through 4 will play their championship games over two nights -- Thursday, June 2 and Friday, June 3. The two City Section title games will be played Saturday, June 4. Specific times and dates for the divisions will be determined at a later date.

“We are thrilled to be holding our title games once again at Dodger Stadium,” Dr. Jim Staunton, Southern Section Commissioner of Athletics, said in a statement. “The Dodger ownership and management continue to prove their belief in a continued partnership of our community athletic programs with their enthusiastic support of CIF championships.”

The Riverside Sports Complex, the home of UC Riverside baseball, will be the site of the Southern Section championships for Divisions 5 through 7.
