Youth baseball begins play in Sacramento

Players take the field at Pocket Little League

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.
