    Hueneme Little League Opening Day

    News Release

    Today the Hueneme Little League kicked off its 2022 season in style. The last
    time opening ceremonies took place was back in 2019 because of COVID-19. The
    turnout was nothing short of amazing, and we are so excited to welcome back all
    of the players, families, coaches, managers, and volunteers. Ana Bolo, President
    of Port Hueneme Little League was the MC for today’s events. Representing the
    City were Mayor Rollins, and City Manager Conners. Mayor Rollins addressed the
    audience and said he was excited to see all the faces back at Bubbling Springs
    Park, and wished everyone a great season. Mayor Rollins was also the honorary
    catcher for the first pitch thrown out by Naval Construction Training Center
    Commander Javier Lopez Martinez.

    Hueneme Little League Opening Day – Special Recognition

    During the ceremony, a group of young men were called out to receive special
    recognition for their recent accomplishments. A traveling baseball team composed
    of youth from the league named “Hueneme Drillers” coached by Hector Ramos,
    recently competed in a Western Regional tournament in Las Vegas where they
    went 6-0 and beat teams from all over the western United States and brought home
    the championship ring! Coach Ramos stated his players worked so hard during
    this past year and were faced with big challenges brought on by COVID-19. At
    one point during training, the kids had to have batting practice in a backyard as no
    other options were available.

    Following all the guidance and COVID-19 protocols,
    the team never gave up. In fact, it motivated all the players to be the best players
    they could be.

    We congratulate the Hueneme Drillers and Hueneme Little League for their
    dedication, hard work, and accomplishments. The City looks forward to a great
    2022 Little League Season!
