Tough Year Won't Stop Highland Park Little League

A theft and severe weather damage won't keep people from the baseball diamond.
A tristate little league is showing people a tough offseason can't keep them off the diamond.

Last year, a man stole more than $10,000 worth of equipment from Highland Park Youth Baseball League's facility on First Avenue which was damaged later in the same year when severe weather rolled through the area.
   
Today, league officials celebrated opening day by kicking off the festivities with Mayor Lloyd Winnecke throwing out the first pitch.
   
Icemen mascot, Blizzard, was there as well as clowns doing balloon art.

The league is also starting a challenger division in the fall for kids with special needs.
Officials say they've got around 40 kids signed up already.
