Most every baseball fan has sang a chorus of: “One, two, three strikes, you’re out.” But, rest assured, no one has ever even thought to write a song about what the San Mateo American Little League All-Stars 10-and-under team is doing this summer.

Forget three strikes in a row. American has now thrown three no-hitters in row, advancing to the championship round of the Northern California State 10s tournament at Julien Elementary School in Turlock with a 10-0 mercy-rule win over Los Altos. It is American’s fourth no-hitter in 10 games on the summer All-Stars season.
