Fourth Annual Senators / Satchel Paige Little League
More than 50 children from pre-school to middle school experienced the "magic" of baseball with professional instruction from Fred Valentine, Al Bumbry and Bill Swaggerty, plus many others. Mayor Vincent C. Gray conducted the post-game ceremonies, acknowledging the growth of youth baseball in all corners of the city during the last four years of efforts like these. We extend a hearty welcome to all of our dedicated volunteers and community partners for helping to make dreams come true. For photos, please go to our Gallery page.
