From Running and Walking to Pitching and Hitting: Residents Keep Busy With Youth Activities

Baseball begins in Manhattan Beach one week after American Martyrs held a fundraising run/walk.

Last Saturday, runners and walkers turned out to get their feet moving during the 31st Annual American Martyrs 5K Run/Walk for a fundraising event that benefited the church school.

Today, Manhattan Beach Little Leaguers join in their opening day parade and festivities, followed by the first games of the season. Kids ages 7-14 also have a chance to compete in a Pitch, Hit & Run contest from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. (application form attached). 

League President Andrew Hunter, American Martyrs Monsignor Barry, the Mira Costa Marching Band, Mayor Richard Montgomery and City Councilmembers Portia Cohen, Mitch Ward, Wayne Powell and Nick Tell, the Manhattan Beach Youth Athletics board and others of note are expected to attend the opening day ceremony scheduled to begin at 10:15 a.m. at the American Martyrs field.

The 2010 Western Region Champion Senior League All-Star team will also be introduced.

In-N-Out Burgers lovers will want to snag a burger from the truck, at the field from 10 a.m. to noon.

Manhattan Beach Youth Athletics promotes, encourages and facilitates cooperation and goodwill among local youth baseball and softball operating entities, including the Manhattan Beach Little League and Manhattan Beach Girls Softball.

Manhattan Beach Patch will have video coverage of today's opening day, so check back today and tomorrow.
