  • Majors, AAA, AA and A teams will start the parade at 9:00 am and proceed down Lisle Ave. Police escort will be provided for the parade.
  • When parade reaches the Pimmit Hills School T-ball and Challenger teams will join the front of the parade. Parade will then continue down Lisle Ave to Peabody Court to Magarity Road and then to the baseball field.

Due to construction there will be NO parking available at the Westgate Fields. 
Parking is available at the Mitre Corporation Building 1 parking lot (see parking map) or on the streets near Westgate Elementary or Pimmit Hills Schools. Parents are encouraged to drop their players at the parade sites, park their cars, and then wait at Westgate for the parade to arrive. Of course, parents are welcome to march in the parade as well.

  • Players should wear uniforms. No cleats, gloves or bats. Please dress appropriately for weather conditions.
  • Upon arrival at the Westgate field teams will be led onto the field and line up in sequence along the outfield fence.Teams will be announced one at a time and will assume positions in the outfield grass.
  • Teams will remain in their positions during the ceremony.  (Note: For younger teams it has shown to be helpful for the manager or a parent to bring some candy treats (eg. lollipops) to keep the kids occupied during the ceremony.)

Immediately following the ceremony TEAM PHOTOS will be taken behind the Westgate field. Photos will start at around 10:20 am and will continue through late afternoon. Please check your team’s photo time. Your team may have to return to Westgate later in the day. Photo order forms are available through your team manager and will also be available on Opening Day.

For 2014, Majors games will be played at Westgate on opening day. All other levels will begin play later in April.

Opening Day games are always very exciting! We invite all teams to stay after the ceremony, or before/after their team photos, and watch some great baseball!
