Hundreds of baseball, softball, t-ball and honk-ball players converged at the Pony field this morning (Saturday, March 26) for opening day activities of Aledo Athletics, Inc.
Following a parade of all the teams, door prizes were awarded and the crowd got to hear from Aledo Head Baseball Coach Chad Barry, who stressed the importance of good sportsmanship. Aledo ISD Athletic Director Tim Buchanan told the players the importance of good grades, calling their attention to the fact that Aledo star running back Johnathan Gray is a straight-A student.
Country music artist Sonny Burgess sang the national anthem, and then it was time for the games to begin.
