COLDSPRING — Kraig Erwin, President of the Coldspring Dixie League, kicked off opening weekend with a “Thank You” to all that was there at the City Park in Coldspring.

The League joined the Chamber of Commerce and had a ribbon cutting ceremony, featuring members of the Chamber and Coldspring Mayor John Benestante.

There also was a special Thank You that went to the general contractor that built the new concession stand and rest room building, Travis Dean of Team Dean Construction. Erwin also was the MC for the auction of a lot of cakes and baked goods, the funds were used to replenish the bank account for the League.

Benestante also got to throw out the first pitch of the new season.

“I grew up playing on ballparks just like this, we (the City of Coldspring)  are not through with the improvements for this ballpark,” Benestante said.

He also said the ballpark is a needed facility for the community.

Erwin said this was the largest turnout for league participation ever. The ages ranged from very young, Kindergarten all the way to teenagers.
