Bellaire Little League officially opened their 70th season, along with a new field. Formerly Jessamine Field, the field was redone with new turf and renamed Weston Field. Little Leaguers, fans, and neighbors of all ages had a blast celebrating Bellaire Little League’s 70-year legacy. The day started with the announcement of all 52 teams; players ran through the Bellaire cardinal per tradition. Pictured are the American League Texas Rangers team, along with Bellaire High School players and cheerleaders. A special surprise and highlight: the 2000 Little League World Series National Champions team returned to celebrate. Throughout the day, guests enjoyed activities including facepainting, treats, carnival games, a rock-climbing wall, and a trackless train, plus the Mom’s Softball Game and the Dad’s Kickball Game. Then the 12-year-olds took the field for the Home Run Derby, where Jacob Braun won the coveted Home Run Derby Belt. Click here for more photos and details by Caroline Siegfried.
