After several joint operations, community shows gratitude
Salinas Valley State Prison (SVSP) Warden Trent Allen threw out the ceremonial first pitch for Soledad Little League.
Over the past several months, SVSP and Correctional Training Facility have helped Soledad police serve search warrants, targeting gangs and the drug trade.
To thank CDCR and local police, Soledad Little League requested Soledad Police Chief Damon Wasson, Deputy Chief Fred Lombardi, and SVSP Warden Allen to throw the first pitch, starting their 2022 season.
Waiting behind home plate to receive the pitches were catchers Nathan Zarco, Jordan Nichols, and Nathaniel Flores.
