In Photos: PLAY BALL!!

It is Springtime here in New Jersey and baseball is blooming! At this time in the year, you can attend a free baseball game every day of the week and on some day's you can even catch two. From Little League to Adult leagues the mound is occupied for the whole season. Baseball holds a special place in a lot of young New Jersey hearts. For some, it is the best time of their young lives and the memories will never be forgotten. For a very select few, these days are just the start of a career played on the big screen that everyone dreams of. But right now for all of these players, it is time to PLAY BALL!
