Little League players hit the diamond for opener

April 12, 2008

Albany -- Families didn't let the weather keep them from going to the ball park Saturday morning.

They were able to watch one of the biggest rivalries, Yankees versus the Red Sox, during the American Legion's home opener.

All 13 teams came out to play during the first game of their season. Five T-ball teams also hit the diamond to show their families their skills on the field. But its not all about the game for these ball players.

"It's to understand win and lose situations. It's not all about winning, its about sportsmanship. It's about being able to take a loss and still hold your head up.

It's not always about winning. It's about enjoying the sport, learning the fundamentals of baseball and learning team camaraderie, said Director, Kenneth Florence.

There are almost 200 children participating in the American Legion baseball teams.
