Saturday is the opening day for Little League, and area leagues met for ceremonies and early games today.
It was particularly poignant for the players at East Altadena Little League, who are dedicating the season to Tim Borquez. Borquez, 12, was a six year member of EALL's Challengers team for special needs children, who died of heart failure last spring.
From top, his mom Monica Borquez addresses the players and parents; John C. Reilly sings the national anthem as players salute the flag to open the season; and the dedication plaque of the batting cages. East Altadena Little League plays at Donley Field at Longfellow School in Pasadena.
