After the briefest of springs, there’s a summery feeling in the air and this Saturday we’re looking at 87 degrees and sunny for one of Bedford’s grandest late-May traditions: Player Appreciation Day for Bedford Babe Ruth Baseball and Softball.
JGMS will be the focal point of all baseball and softball-related activities on Saturday, so swing by anytime to catch an assortment of games, trophy presentations, and other family-friendly activities. There will games at I Field (next to JGMS), C Field (next to Sabourin Field) and E Field (across from the library) throughout the day, including the National League (grades 3-5) All-Star Game at 10:00 and the American League (grades 5-7) All-Star Game at 11:30.
