LAS VEGAS -- The spotlight is once again being shined on the Las Vegas Mountain Ridge Little League team which made history by being the first Nevada team to make it to the Little League World Series.

Ward 6 Councilman, Steven D. Ross, unveiled a monument Saturday in honor of the team. The monument, located at Mountain Ridge Park at the intersection of Durango Drive and Elkhorn Road, resembled a big metal picture frame, and it had the names of the coaches, players and managers inscribed on it.

Councilman Ross was joined by the team, Coach Ashton Cave and the assistant coaches for the unveiling. Saturday's event at Mountain Ridge Park was just one of many celebrations, parades and rallies held for them since their loss at nationals.

After many victories during the Little League World Series, the Mountain Ridge Little Leaguers fell to Chicago during the championship game in August.

The Las Vegas team's extraordinary performance brought the community together to rally for them. Their legacy will live on with the monument.
