Catskill Little League season opens
May 01, 2011 10:20 am
At 8 a.m. Sat., April 30, over 200 boys and girls from around Catskill with their parents, relatives, and friends, all marched from the Catskill Elementary School to Elliot Field in the annual Little League parade. Opening ceremonies, the nationa anthem, team and individual photos, and an entire day's worth of T-Ball, AA, AAA, and full league games followed. Ed Dupont, Catskill Little League president, dedicated the day's events to the memory of Michael White, a Little League player who died last year. White's team was presented with trophies for regional victories, and T=the first pitch was tossed out by Catskill Village President Vincent Seeley, with most of the town and village's officials, and legislators, also on hand for the event. Much was said about ongoing efforts to build new field. Two dozen plus teams, including girl's softball, play into the latter half of June. Northern Columbia and Hudson Little League play also started in the past week.
