It is officially spring in San Diego. Presidio Little League, after a one week rain delay, held their opening day ceremonies at Sefton Field on Saturday, March 16. Sefton Field is in Mission valley at the far west end, off Taylor Street and Hotel Circle Place.

Approximately 130 families and 150 players in 13 teams gathered to kick off the season in grand style. The University of San Diego Navy Reserve Officer Training Corps Color Guard presented the colors at 9 a.m., followed by recognition of the league’s sponsors. Then each of the team’s coaches introduced each of the league’s divisions from Bam-Bam (4 years old) to Intermediate (12 to14 years old).

After the introductions were over, the season began with games on four of the five fields. Presidio Little League welcomes the community to come and watch these energetic boys and girls play ball. Sefton Field is an exciting, fun-filled family environment, and has been the home of Presidio Little League since 1970. Looking around the field, you will see the names of many of Mission Hills’ most prominent residents, including J.W. Sefton, Art Bishop, Scott Palmer, Jack Hacker, Ed Luce and Ron Carrico.
