Newport Little League's opening day ceremonies for baseball and softball will be held at 8 a.m. Saturday, April 30 at Goldberg Field (near CCRI). Players from all baseball and softball divisions should be at the field by 7:30 a.m. in full uniform. Families are welcome to park in the CCRI lot on Saturday morning.
Sen. M. Teresa Paiva Weed, president of the Rhode Island Senate, and her father, Arthur Paiva, will throw out the ceremonial first pitches.
Photographer Meri Keller will take candid photos, and will also take team and individual player photos later in the season. Families will be able to purchase photos through her SmugMug page. The link will be provided when it becomes available.
The baseball concession stand schedule for April and May has been posted to the Newport Little League website. Each family has been assigned one or two games in the concession stand in order to ensure that all families participate equally in concession stand coverage.
The schedule is accessible under the "Concessions" tab. If you are unable to work the concession stand during your assigned game, please work with your coach and other parents on the team to switch games or have your game covered.
