The fields are green and the bases are in. Little League baseball has started its latest season in Central Saanich, with teams on the diamonds in Centennial Park on a regular basis.

Teams from the Peninsula and Greater Victoria participate in a variety of age groups and competition levels. Central Saanich’s Majors-level team (ages 11 and 12), coached by Bruce Evans and Ian Cracknell, hosted Hampton (Victoria) April 25.

Evans said it was their second game of the season, which runs through mid-June. The top teams in each division, he said, will go this year to a final league tournament.
