The Seals, an El Cerrito Youth Baseball team in the Pinto Division (open to boys and girls ages 7-8) were excited about a new season at opening day ceremonies on Feb. 26, 2011.

At Sunday’s opening day ceremonies, the players and parents in the El Cerrito Youth Baseball program showed not only showed their love of the game, they showed their love of Bay Area baseball and its history.
The program, of course, has teams named for the A’s and the Giants.
But it also has teams named for the Oakland Oaks and the San Francisco Seals (above), an acknowledgment of the Pacific Coast League teams that once played in the Bay Area before the San Francisco Giants brought major league baseball here in 1958.
Further proof? The league doesn’t have a team using the Dodgers name and there were some good-natured boos for the Yankees squad.
