Last Saturday had sunny and hot ball game weather with a hign of 93 which was just two degrees short of the record high for March 31 set in 1946. The average temp for the day is 71 according to the Weather Undergound web site.
The unseasonably warm day didn't hamper the turnout for Post Little League's Opening Day ceremonies as young ball players, their parents, grand parents and friends came out to David Nichols Ball Park for a day of fun. "I think the ceremonies went really well. We had a great turnout, and I think everyone had a blast with all the activities and great food," said organizer Heather Blacklock.
In addition to the ceremonies, the days activities for the kids included laser tag, a bungee run, an obstacle course and blow up jumpers. Also on the agenda for athletes of all ages were a fastest pitch competition and a home-run derby. Hamburgers, hot dogs, sausage wraps and soft drinks were available to the public.
League officials expect at least 320 kids will participate in two t-ball groups, four softball organizations and three baseball leagues.
Blacklock is optimistic about the summer saying "we have an AMAZING group of kids and am looking forward to a great season."
