“Bay Ridge little league opening day is my favorite holiday of the year,” said Tommy Henderson, the council’s president and baseball commissioner. “Now we can all sit back and watch our kids tear up the basepaths.”

Henderson said league registration numbers are high.

“It is awesome to see so many new faces learning and playing my favorite sport,” he said. “One day, we will all be bragging about how we saw some major leaguers play in their first T-ball game.”
