BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

There hasn't been little league baseball in baker since 2011, but that is about to change.

A group of volunteers has been working to resurrect the old Baker little league field.

On Friday, they were ready to show off their work. A new paint job, new bleachers, and a freshly manicured field are just a few of the improvements. All of that prep work means that the field is ready for baseball.

"It's amazing to see these kids playing," says Ryan Lowe. So many people have come up to me that were involved in little league years ago and are thrilled to back on this field playing.”

Opening day kicks off Saturday at 10 a.m. with a parade down highway 19 to the field on groom road followed by two baseball games.
