Players, their families and friends are invited to join the fun as the Scarsdale Little League kicks off the 2017 season Saturday April 22 from 8:30-9:15am at Crossway 3 Field (320 Mamaroneck Road across from the Scarsdale Swimming Pool).
The League is excited to have special guest, Bobby Valentine, throwing out the first pitch to open the Little League season. Bobby was a high school football and baseball star in nearby Stamford, CT, and went on to play ten seasons in MLB and manage for 16 MLB seasons including seven with the Mets leading them to the World Series in 2000. He is an ambassador for baseball in the USA, Japan and around the world.
Pete Ruf, Sports Anchor for News 12 Westchester, will emcee the ceremony, which will include remarks from Bobby Valentine, new Scarsdale Mayor, Dan Hochvert, new Scarsdale Varsity Baseball Coach, Jeff Weigel, and our SLL Co-President, Michael Asen.
There will be lots of food and fun at the ceremony with fashionable Scarsdale Baseball hoodies and shirts available for purchase. Brother Jimmy's BBQ will be giving out $20 gift certificates to the first 100 purchasers.
Those who purchased Yankee or Met tickets can pick them up at the field from 7:45-9:00am.
The ceremony will start promptly at 8:30am and last approximately 30 minutes, and everyone is encouraged to arrive early since parking is limited. Parking is also available in the Scarsdale Swimming Pool lot across the street.
Please note that games this Saturday in Atlantic, Junior and 1st grade leagues will start as soon as possible after the ceremony (approximately 9:15-9:30am).
