The skies may have been gray but the mood was bright as baseball and softball players paraded from Academy Field down Main Street to Cragan Field Saturday, for the East Greenwich Little League’s Opening Day festivities.

According to EGLL President Russ Marcantonio, about 415 children are participating this spring. Good luck to all the teams!

Hip Hip Hooray for EG Little League ! I marched/rode on fire truck in the first EGLL parade back in 1953. Three great years playing ball. Hope you all enjoy the same.
