Opening Day 2019 is almost here! It is next Saturday, 4/27 at Memorial Field in Mendon! As always, this will be an exciting and fun-filled day for the Mendon/Upton softball and baseball families!
Please plan to arrive by 9:30 AM. You can park in either of the Memorial Field parking lots or on the street. If you park on the street, please do not park between Memorial Field and Kelley Road.
Teams will line up for the parade at 9:30 AM on Kelley Road. The younger teams will be at the front and the older teams will be in the back. All players will remain with their head coaches during the parade and opening ceremonies.
At 10:00 AM, Millville Road will be closed and the parade will begin. The teams will march from Kelley Rd to Memorial Field. Parents & other family members will have plenty of room along Millville Rd to watch and take pictures. Once the teams reach Memorial Field, they will be lined up on the outside of the baseball homerun fence.
At 10:30 AM, the teams will be introduced one-by-one. They will each run onto the baseball infield where they will be directed by volunteers. Parents & other family members should remain outside of the foul lines. Once all of the teams are on the baseball infield, the opening ceremonies will take place.
After the ceremonies, teams will play exhibition games, participate in friendly skill events, and pose for individual & team portraits. Each team’s Opening Day schedule can be found in the following places:
The NYS Snack Shack will be stocked with food (and accepting credit cards)! And there will be a raffle (also accepting credit cards) of many great baskets - proceeds all go back into the softball and baseball programs.
