Great to see the photos of the opening of the Richfield Baseball Inc. season! Our son played with that association for seven years, and what a great program it is. Richfield youth baseball is the envy of neighboring communities, and the kids are turning out in big numbers. So much credit goes to the tremendous outpouring of leadership and volunteerism from parents and other community members. Dedicated people are doing a lot for the kids, and making Richfield a strong and vibrant family-friendly community. Now on to the opening of the Richfield Babe Ruth Baseball season for 13 to 15 year olds at Donaldson Park next Saturday!

I played on the city league softball when I was kid as well! Oakland A's for three straight years. Patch will be at Saturday's opener, too!
