Nearly 600 kids took the field at the Indian Trails Sports Complex for the opening day of the Palm Coast Little League on Saturday, March 3.
Saturday, March 3, marked the 18th season of Palm Coast Little League.
League Treasurer Fred Lewers, 75, has been there for all of them.
“This is a fantastic day,” said Lewers, who has been involved with little league for the past 58 years. “It’s great for the kids. It gives them the chance to where they’re outside, intermingling with other children.”
Palm Coast Little League — which consists of nearly 600 kids, 400 families and 43 teams — is the largest official little league in the Northeast Coast district.
Games were played from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the Indian Trails Sports Complex.
“Opening Day is about getting everyone together,” Palm Coast Little League President Patrick Johnan said. “All the colors. All the smiles. It’s a city-wide celebration.”
