Despite a rainy morning, Canyon Country Little League went forward with their Opening Day Ceremonies on Saturday, March 3, 2018. This year’s special guests were retired MLB icon Bill Russell, who threw out the first pitch, and local radio host Sean Valentine from “Valentine in the Morning” on KBIG. They were both troopers, who didn’t let a little rain keep them from supporting the local players.
The Canyon Country Little League Fundraising and Sponsorship Chair Kimberlee Castro posted on Facebook a big “thank you” to all the team members, parents and supporters:
“A lot of families stayed with us and had lunch and played some games. … I am eternally grateful to Mr. Bill Russell and Valentine for sticking with us. Our opening ceremony was intended to be longer but it was best for the kids to call it early. THANK YOU so much for sticking it out and helping us start the season.
Canyon Country Little League is already planning “Take 2” at the end of the month, which will include pictures, vendors, a BBQ and a bake sale “with no rain,” Castro posted. “Stay tuned for details! Let’s make this the season to remember.”
