Everyone loves a parade, especially kids 12 and under excited that opening day of youth baseball is here.
Under sunny skies and perfect for a day at the ball park, the Lookout Mountain Dixie Youth Baseball program held its popular annual Opening Day parade Saturday at Senter Field and Johnson Field.
Dressed in their new colorful uniforms and armed with gloves and bats, the Lookout Mountain youngsters were ready to take the field and play ball.
The late Nick Senter was honored by Dixie Boys Baseball past president Ted Jones who announced that Senter has been inducted into the DBB hall of fame.
Harvey Senter of Sumter, S.C. was on hand to receive a hall of fame watch and proclamation in honor of his late uncle who was the driving force behind Dixie Youth Baseball (originally called Little Boys Basebal) first establishing leagues for Lookout Mountain, Cleveland, Rivermont and Rossville in the summer of 1959.
