HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

Saturday marked opening day for Lakeside Youth Baseball team, but this one is missing an important piece. 

The league memorialized former Coach Phillip Edwards, who passed away in December. 

Edwards was involved with the league for 37 years as a player and then as a coach. A plaque and memorial were unveiled before first pitch. 

Many friends and family attended to pay tribute.
