Owen Voycey, 9, of the U11 Ridge Meadows White Sox aims the ball at a baking pan tied to the diamond fence as he learns how to pitch during a team practice at the Albion sportsfields recently. Last year was the first year players were introduced to pitching and this year they were learning how to throw 46 feet into the strike zone. The team were also doing outfield drills and infield drills. The official start of the season takes place April 14 in Pitt Meadows. Coach Blair Olynyk watches as Kyle Andersen, 10, and Vivaan Menon, 10, practice as well. (Colleen Flanagan/THE NEWS)
