    On a bright sunny April morning, Grant County Little League Baseball and T-ball, held their opening day games at Grant County Park in Crittenden.

    The children lined up against the fences, as their teammates stepped up to the plate, kicking dirt up in the batter’s box.

    Clemons, the Grant County Parks and Recreation director, said the program became popular after the spring season and when Williamstown, Dry Ridge and Mason-Corinth Elementaries came on board.
