Alpenrose gears for 06 Series
The District 4 winner will vie again at the Aug. 10-16 Series
PORTLAND - The eyes of the World will be trained on Alpenrose Dairy August 10-16, as the best 11 and 12-year olds from around the world go head to head in the 2006 Little League Softball World Series.
Little League chose Portland's Alpenrose Dairy once again as the site for this year's event, which will be broadcast live by ESPN2 during the series' final two days.
The three beautifully maintained softball fields on the Alpenrose campus have been in use since Henry Cadonau first built them for his grandchildren, and generations later, the Cadonau family is still running the family-owned dairy business and sharing their love of the sport with their community and the world.
'Family events like the Little League Softball World Series are too much fun not to host,' said Carl Cadonau Jr., co-president of Alpenrose Dairy. 'That's why we offer free admission, so people can come out and appreciate the sport and cheer on the kids that represent the future.'
Admission to the entire seven-day World Series event is free, no tickets or passes needed. Countries outside of the United States participating in the series include Canada, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and Europe. Alpenrose Dairy is located at 6149 S.W. Shattuck Road in Portland.
