Soggy fields were not enough to dampen the enthusiasm of hundreds of ballplayers at the Auburn Little League opening ceremonies this past Saturday.

To avoid a soaking, the ceremonies moved inside the Cascade Middle School gym, where Auburn Mayor Nancy Backus and Auburn School District Superintendent Kip Herren were on hand to toss out ceremonial pitches.

The only thing missing from the day was actual baseball, which had to be postponed because

of the weather.
