First pitch is fast approaching for Tiburon softball, Little League


Spring is just around the corner, and local boys and girls will soon be grabbing their bats and gloves and taking to the field.

Tiburon Little League and Tiburon Girls Softball will both start new seasons this month, with the Little League season kicking off March 11.

The league, which has 36 teams made up of players with ages ranging from 4 to 14, will hold its opening day celebration March 18 at Strawberry Field. A round of baseball games will be played at 9 a.m.; after those games are over, all the teams will gather around the baseball diamond to be introduced.
"We'll have a nice little ceremony, we'll recite the Little League pledge, the national anthem, we'll acknowledge the all-star teams, particularly the 12-year-old and the 50/70 teams, which won their districts last year," said Patrick Tenney, the league's board president.

Afterward, there will be food and drinks, as well as skill-based games such as throwing accuracy contests and races. Afternoon games will get underway at 3 p.m. Tenney said he hopes the younger kids will stick around for those games, which feature some of the league's older kids.
