West Seattle Little League Jamboree: A home run

Wintry chill couldn’t keep West Seattle Little League players and families off Bar-S Playfield today for the annual season-starting Jamboree. WSB contributing photojournalist Matt Durham got tons of great shots:


At center right in the group of photos above, that’s the “Voice of the Mariners,” West Seattle resident Tom Hutyler, on hand to announce players and teams. In the group of photos below, at upper right you see former Mariners and Oakland A’s outfielder Dave Henderson pitch in the first ball, along with one lucky Little League player. Matt writes: “Players and coaches, from T-ball to Majors, ran onto the chilled field as fans and parents hailed their grit”:

    Ahhhh…..how we miss Little League! Looks like it was another great day to start the season. Enjoy!

    Great pics Matt! The one team shot brings back memories for sure – one player with face buried in coach’s (dad’s?) chest, one player with his hand in his pants, all we needed was someone digging in the dirt and the T-ball experience would be complete in one photographic instant :)

    If there’s anything better than LL Opening Day, I’d like to know about it. :-)

    Fantastic pictures, Mr. Durham!
