WBSI Opening Day and Picture Day

APRIL 14, 2018

Spring has finally arrived and the baseball and softball season is upon us! To welcome the season, WBSI will be having their Opening Day parade and ceremony on Saturday, April 14th.  The day will begin promptly at 8:30AM with a parade of all teams down Bardy Road towards the municipal fields led by our local sponsors, the Community Volunteer Fire Company and the Warren Township Police department. Following the parade, a first pitch ceremony commencing the season will be held on field M3 featuring Warren Mayor, Carolann Garafola and Committee Persons, George Lazo & Mick Marion.   Thereafter, based on the Game Schedule below, exhibition, mini-tournaments, and regular league games at all levels will occur. 

All baseball and softball players are encouraged to march in the parade in uniform, with their team. Players should gather with their team between 8AM & 8:15AM on M7 (the grass fields adjacent to the library and Mountain Boulevard).  Bystanders can line up along Bardy Road to cheer on the parade participants.   

Individual and team pictures have also been scheduled as one of the many opening day activities.  To ensure you don’t miss the opportunity to have a team and individual picture, please refer to the Picture Schedule below.  Photo Forms will be handed out with the team uniform. Please complete the form & bring it form and have it with you for the scheduled photo session.  For your convenience, the Sport Packages and the individual item list below to become familiar with your photo purchase options.

For the 3rd consecutive year, “Homerun Hopefuls” that will collect and deliver new and used baseball equipment for underprivileged children in the Dominican Republic.  A collection tent will be set up near the snack shack on Opening Day.

We hope to see you for a great day of baseball and softball (plus lots of smiles for pictures)!
