Solana Beach Little League announced recently that it will host opening day ceremonies for its 55th season of play at Solana Vista Elementary School on March 3 at 8:30 a.m.
More than 400 boys and girls from Solana Beach, Carmel Valley and Del Mar participate in Little League baseball in the Solana Beach league. This year, players from age 5-14 will compete in divisions from tee ball to juniors.
The opening day ceremony begins with a player parade and will include special guests, a ceremonial first pitch, an honor guard as well as musical tributes, including the national anthem, from local rock band, the Styrotones, which is made up of three Little League players. Players will have photos taken following the ceremony and then games will commence at 11 a.m.
“Little League baseball in Solana Beach is not only a long-standing tradition, but each year provides a fantastic environment for our kids and our community,” said league president Paul Gange. “We welcome the community to come out and enjoy a day of baseball on opening day, or any time throughout our season which will run until early June. We play games every Saturday, and Tuesday – Thursday during the week.”
