BROOKLYN - With temperatures slowly beginning to rise to levels appropriate for spring, Little League sluggers in Brooklyn are starting off their season.

Hundreds of young baseball players marched through Park Slope to Prospect Park Saturday to celebrate the first day of the Little League season.

Dylan, 6, is on one of the dozens of teams from across the borough who came out to throw their first pitches of the season. The players also received a special visit from Mayor Bill de Blasio, who was joined by a few other local elected officials.

The young players, their coaches and families all say they can only hope the weather continues to improve so they can enjoy the season.
