This past weekend was the opening day for Patterson Little League, and it was sunny but COLD, which is why my 4-year-old has his jacket over his jersey. It was a big deal in our small town. A firetruck led the parade from the center of town to the baseball field, and all the teams followed in a parade behind them.
