It's still early in the season, but the Valley Dodgers are already terming this weekend's series with the Westside Waves as important to the team's success.
The Dodgers (9-0, 4-0 in the Golden State League) have four games in two days against the Waves, who are 3-1 in league. Westside plays host to the Dodgers for a noon doubleheader today at The Master's College in Newhall. Sunday's noon doubleheader is set for Cal State Northridge, the Dodgers' home field.
A successful weekend would help strengthen the team's seeding in the National Baseball Congress state tournament in San Bernardino, July 1-4.
