Sky Valley Little League (SVLL) will be hosting its annual Welcome Back to Baseball/Softball Jamboree this Saturday at Sky River Park.
Each team will have their pictures taken near the gazebos by the playground and then play a one-hour exhibition game at the Sky River Fields in Monroe.
Opening ceremonies begin at 10:15 a.m. on Sky River Field #2. Joining the festivities there will be Mariners’ First Base Coach Mike Brumley. Opening ceremonies include the singing of the National Anthem, the Little League Pledge, a special thank you to the sponsors and Coach Brumley throwing out the ceremonial “first pitch.”
All players are invited to be on the infield during the festivities. Families, friends and community supporters are welcome to participate, as well.
Sponsors and sports partners will have information booths available. There will be an opportunity to meet Coach Brumley and get your picture taken with him.
SVLL’s annual fundraiser, the basket raffle, will be drawn at 4 p.m. near the Sky River concession stand. Basket winners will be called to arrange for pickup of their basket and the players who sold the most raffle tickets will be announced along with their prizes. Pictures and the opening ceremonies will be taking place regardless of the weather.
