Hits, catches and calls at the plate were made as youth baseball leagues opened throughout Sacramento this past Saturday.
Pocket Little League opened as the sun rose over Wes Yeargin Field in South Sacramento. Hundreds of kids marched onto the field dressed in traditional baseball gear.
The opening celebration included recognition of 2012’s Pocket Little League Yankees who were the Minor League California District 7 T.O.C. Champions, followed by an opening day pitch by Sacramento City Councilmember Darrell Fong.
Participants at Natomas Youth Baseball began their season at Strauch School Park in the Northgate neighborhood of Sacramento. Players warmed up with players and coaches as final field preparations were made.
Teams in North Natomas Little League also began play at Regency Park.
