BOSTON (CBS) – Saturday’s opening ceremonies for a number of Boston-area Little Leagues were bittersweet in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings.
A somber ceremony was held to open the Savin Hill Little League’s season.
Eight-year-old Martin Richard, who was killed in the attack, was honored during the ceremony.
Boston firefighters lined the street leading to the field where Richard had played; all of them wearing shirts with his name on them.
