The weather was nearly perfect for the opening day of the 2012 Alexandria Little League baseball season at Simpson Field on Saturday.
There are 25 teams this year, which are sponsored by Alexandria businesses. Before the first pitch was tossed, each team had pictures taken, purchased baseball gear for the season and enjoyed baked goods and other treats from the concession stand. Members of the T. C. Williams High School baseball team and their coach were on hand to offer tips to the youngsters, sign autographs and cheer their favorite Little League team on to victory.
The Little League season runs through June. Go out to the ball park and catch a game.
