There were games played at Smith Field on Saturday, but the real story was the continuation of a tradition as old as baseball itself.

Opening Day of the Half Moon Bay Little League has meaning that leaves everyone a winner.

Whether they were playing a game of pickle or just running around for the heck of it, Little Leaguers were clearly glad to be on the baseball diamond once more.

“That’s fine,” said Steve Stack, Half Moon Bay Little League president. “It’s all part of being a kid.”

The nice weather helped the cause as well.

Six actual games took place Saturday. Sandwiched around the games was the official Opening Day. The highlight came when all the players, nearly 300 between the ages of 7 and 14, circled the bases.

“That’s my favorite part,” said Jake Hessen of J.W. McClenahan Co.

The games, the food, the festivities — all of it combined for a special day.

“It was a good way to start the season,” Stack said.

It was also a good way for the players to visit with their friends.

“I do see all my friends in school,” said Justin Garcia of Firehouse No. 9, as he was breaking in his new glove. “But I’d rather see them on the field.”

Welcome to the discussion.

Surprisingly, SAM and CCWD have never been closer to making it a reality. MSWD was the problem and that seems to have cleared up.
