Lompoc Little League kicked off the 2015 season with its Opening Ceremonies Saturday.
Registration is out of the way, tryouts are long gone and hundreds of young players, parents and volunteer coaches and helpers from around the Lompoc Valley finally got down to playing ball with opening day at Johns-Manville Park in Lompoc.
Players in full uniform had a busy day at the park, with teams lining up for photos as early as 7:30 a.m., before opening ceremonies began at around 8:30.
In 2015, the Lompoc Little League is hosting nearly 40 teams throughout all divisions and all of them were on hand Saturday, with games throughout the day and some clubs taking their team photos as late as 5:30 p.m.
There are T-ball, coaches-only-pitching leagues, minors and majors leagues this season in Lompoc. Scores and details from this week's games will be available in a later edition of the Lompoc Record.
The Lompoc Little League League President is Charles Scott this year.
