• Wildomar Little League Opening Day 2015

Today was opening day for Wildomar Little League, which is comprised of 15 teams in 4 divisions. Four teams in each of the T-Ball, Single A and Double A divisions, with three in the Triple A division.

I was asking how that works, with the odd number of teams, and they play against Canyon Lake which also has three teams in that division. There is no team in the Major division this year, but they are hoping to have at least one next year.

A look at some of the teams as they were getting ready for opening day ceremonies.

At a little after 8:30am Lyndsay Swann did a good job as she sang the national anthem, followed by the pledge of allegiance and then the Little League Pledge.  Also there to help kick off the season were Mayor Pro-Tem Bridgette Moore and City Council Member Marsha Swanson.

A big Thank You goes to the sponsors of the league, which includes DeJong's Dairy, Intellinet, A Purpose Clothing, Rooster Tattoo Art, Zoom Bail Bonds, LE Storm baseball, Sun Pro Solar, Barbee's Welding and Fabrication, Old Market Grill, Rudy's Antique and Thrift, All American MRO Supply, Diamond 8 Theaters, The links at Summerly, and Gates Sound.

I had a chance to speak to a member of the Double A Mets, seven year old Oscar Chavez

He nodded with a smile when I asked if he was excited about Opening Day. 

I asked him what position he plays and he said pitcher and third base with a big grin.


Thanks to all the parents and community volunteers that willingly donated their time so that the local kids would have a place to play organized baseball. It takes a lot of work and dedication to pull it off.

Hope it's a great season, Play Ball! ☺
