For years, Opening Day has been filled with lots of food, family, fun and most importantly - baseball and softball!! Our 2019 Spring Season will be no different. Opening Day is scheduled for Saturday, March 23, 2019.
OPENING DAY HIGHLIGHTS:
All players are welcome to stand on the field during the Opening Ceremony First Pitch at 9:50 a.m. on IMS - North. Please have your players arrive by 9:30 a.m. to be placed in time for the group photo.
We will be honoring Bill 'The Hammer' Straus for his dedication as a volunteer in our community and especially in Arcadia Little League. Many of you have already noticed the beautiful plaque located just to the left of the snack bar.
We are also giving thanks to Ken Kendrick and his family for his generous donation of the renovation to Ingleside fields. This donation was possible due to the hard work and partnership between the Kendrick Family, Scottsdale Unified School District and Arcadia Little League.
Diamondbacks mascot - Baxter will be joined by former Diamondbacks players to sign autographs throughout the morning.
Team Pictures will be held at Ingleside East Field this year. Please check with your managers.
