The sun smiled on opening day of Little League
East Hampton - posted Wed., May. 1, 2013
East Hampton Little League, which was established in 1952, celebrated opening day for the 2013 season on Saturday, April 27, under the bright sun of a crisp April morning. The day started with an 8:30 a.m. parade of players ranging from the little ones just starting t-ball to seasoned girls in Majors softball and their coaches. The parade ended at Seamster Field for opening ceremonies at 9 a.m., when all teams and coaches were announced by Bill Reilly, the Little League President, and the first pitch of the season was thrown.
The smell of their famous egg sandwiches, grilled hamburgers, and hotdogs from the concession stand and tons of excited baseball and softball players and fans made Opening Day of baseball in East Hampton an event to remember.
East Hampton Little League is completely run by volunteers. The Board of Directors handles every aspect of running the season and, along with countless parent volunteers and several town sponsors, it makes for a great facility that the town is very proud of. Everyone who walks into the facility which is behind Memorial School immediately notices that it’s one of the nicest and most cared for group of fields in the state. Not only are the fields immaculate, but the details were all in place for opening day – right down to the “Play Ball” sign on the t-ball field for all the little ones to see at their first ballgame.
