In spite of the threat of rain, Forest Park Little League presented its Opening Day with much festivity Saturday – after postponing due to a rainout the week before. After team photos were snapped, the Forest Park Police Honor Guard presented the colors, followed by Mayor Anthony Calderone throwing out the first pitch of the season. T-ball players, ages four and five played a round of “everyone goes to bat each inning,” with the Cubs vs. the Tigers and Pirates vs. the Dodgers. Little League board member Jim Doolin announced plays on Field 2. Then the Rookies took the field with Philly’s vs. Yankees and Rangers vs. the Red Sox. Everyone enjoyed free hamburgers and hot dogs, and players clutched their tickets for a treat at the Dugout Caf. Adults and kids ogled brand new Chevys parked on the grass from Currie Chevrolet. Little fingers delighted in touching the Nadeau ice sculpture. That evening, on the big field, the Minors played Giants vs. Reds and the White Sox team played Westchester.
