Old Rochester Little League Opening Day

Old Rochester Little League held its Opening Day on Saturday at Gifford Park in Rochester, MA.  The weather was warm and sunny and the skies were blue when the players, coaches and parents stepped off from Dexter Lane to parade to Gifford Park for Opening Day Ceremonies.  Glenn Lawrence did his  annual flyover to start off the ceremonies. The first balls were thrown and the season began.   This year there are almost 300 kids playing Little League in the towns of Marion, Mattapoisett and Rochester.  This includes Majors, Minors, Triple A, Double A, and Single A.

This is the fourth year that the three towns have combined into Old Rochester Little League.  The games are played at the fields in all three towns.  It’s been a great success and a great opportunity for all the local players.

Old Rochester Little League

Old Rochester Little League Opening Day was held  Saturday, May 2nd at Old Hammondtown Fields in Mattapoisett, MA. The Major Leagues, Minors, Triple A, Double A, and Single A all gathered at  Knights of Columbus in Mattapoisett and marched to the ball field at Old Hammondtown.   The teams and coaches were announced and the national anthem was sung by Sarah Achorn.

The first ball was thrown out and  the words “Play Ball” were spoken and the official season of Old Rochester Little League began.

Games were played on Lambo field later in the day as well as Rochester and Marion fields.

Over 300 kids are involved in Little League this year.  The tri-towns of Marion, Mattapoisett and Rochester have combined to form the Old Rochester Little League for 3  years now. The teams are mixed with children from each town on every team.  It’s a great way to get the kids familiar with kids they will be in school with come junior high.  Opening Day alternates between the three towns every year.  Next year the parade will head back to Rochester.

It was a beautiful day to be outside and enjoying the sport of baseball!
