Ballistic turns 40

For people who have nothing to do with soccer but still sit on porches or line the streets, it's another hometown tradition to enjoy. For the Ballistic United Soccer Club, this parade will mark the beginning of the 40th youth soccer season for Pleasanton's boys.

The cover story about the BUSC. Just for the record about the patches that were displayed. There were three different types of patches from 1968-1973. You are missing two of them. I actually have them. I was the goalkeeper of the first state cup championship team. I hold two state cup championships and a Gold Cup championship.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
