After having their traditional Opening Day ceremonies washed out on Saturday, March 11 – the fields were too wet and muddy for games – the boys and girls taking part in the City of Escalon Recreation Department’s baseball and softball program finally did get to play.

The rescheduled Opening Day was done without fanfare on Saturday, March 18, games getting started early and running throughout the day. Host site in Escalon was the Hogan-Ennis Park complex, which has several fields to accommodate all levels. From the youngest T-ball players to the veterans suiting up for the Major squads, there was plenty of action and kids basked in the chance to get out on the field for some fun and competition.
