After 25 years of maintaining the Uvalde Sports Complex, recently retired Osvaldo Sandoval was honored Saturday during Little League open ceremonies.

Sandoval received a plaque for his services and had the honor of throwing the first pitch for the baseball/softball season.

The ceremony was held at 10 a.m. at the sports complex.

Osvaldo Sandoval retired from the city after 25 years. He was responsible for keeping these fields up to date. He did a really good job. We never had to ask him to do anything,” said JJ Suarez, vice president of softball.
