The arrival of spring once again means the return of Little League baseball in Newville, as Newville Little League marked the beginning of their 2021 season with Opening Day ceremonies on a cloudy Saturday morning at the Little League Complex.

With the ceremonial first pitch and the crack of the bat brought a small, but welcome, bit of normalcy after a crazy calendar year. The COVID-19 pandemic had a large impact on the Little League season in 2020. It forced the cancellation of Opening Day ceremonies and pushed the season to late in the summer -- which also meant the axing of All-Star tournaments.
