In pictures: Little League season kicks off in SF


Basic balls, strikes and hi-jinks are back in full supply in Santa Fe. The Santa Fe Little League season kicked off this month with 62 baseball and softball teams split into different groups of age, including players as young as 3.5 years old.

In all, the league has 840 kids chasing after fly balls, cheering on their teammates and learning the strike zone.

This level of participation is by far the highest since the league’s 2020 season was wiped out due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

And who knows? There could well be a future big league in the mix.

To date, 30 New Mexico-born players have reached Major League Baseball, including four active players – Alex Bregman, Ken Giles, Trevor Rogers and Mitch Garver.

Albuquerque Journal and its reporters are committed to telling the stories of our community.
