How do I know spring has arrived? Because the little leagues are playing ball!

In the park last week, we saw scads of uniformed players convene for the opening ceremonies. Here's one team waiting in line to file onto the field.

And, because Loco's Restaurant is the big sponsor, Loco sent their moose down to help entertain.

So the teams finally filed onto the field. I couldn't get a good shot of all players. Only the ones in the middle. They stretched from first base to third base, though third base was a little crowded:

After flag presentation (by the local high school ROTC) and the national anthem (sung a cappella), the teams and coaches were introduced. And, come to find out, some games had already been played earlier that morning. Several little kids, maybe three feet tall--oh, so cute!--had dirt smudges on their nice white baseball pants.

I don't much like baseball/softball, but I am really glad to see the players out because that's the surest sign spring is here to stay!


  1. Take me out to the ballgame...

    We're in that in between point- cold enough in the mornings that a toque is still required, but by noon, you don't want it.

    1. That means it won't be long till it's shorts weather!

  2. I like baseball and it is a sure sign of Spring. The little ones are always the cutest !

    cheers, parsnip
