After a weekend of heavy rain caused a postponement of Croton Little League’s annual Opening Day Parade and Ceremonies (view photo gallery) by one week to April 29th, the festivities were welcomed with cheering spectators, eager players, and an abundance of sunshine. With the sunny warm weather it certainly felt like baseball season had arrived!
The parade started at Croton-Harmon High School with a police escort and proceeded up Old Post Road to Grand Street to Dobbs Field where ceremonies were presided over by “retiring” Little League President Terri Lukin. Croton Recreation Department Superintendent Susan Menz threw out the ceremonial first pitch to officially kick off the 2006 season.
Baseball is played nightly at 6:00 PM and Saturdays at 9:00 & 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM at fields—Dobbs, Firemen’s, Duck Pond, PVC Middle School, and Vasallo—all over town; so stop by and see some of our 600+ kids in action.
