At Saturday’s opening ceremonies at Bridge City Little League, the newly acquired field that formerly belonged to the Pony League was renamed in honor of David Self Ford.
After the National Anthem, David Self threw out the first pitch and was presented with the ball by league president, Britt Patterson and Vice President of Junior Ball, Danny Harrington.
The BCLL had tried to attain the field for the last 25 years.
