Opening Day Festival Was a Blast

Blue Skies, Great Rides and Baseball

Rockaway Little League's annual gala on Saturday, April 25 was a great success. More than 600 people participated. The parade of teams was well-attended, despite the early morning wind. The Challenger Division's first game of the season was one of the high points.  Former MLB pitcher John Halama came in relief of our ace Randy Koenig and tossed two innings to Rockaway's Challengers, some of whom like Jeff (pictured at right) swung for the fences. The first Tee Ball games of 2015 were also played.  As usual, Field 5 was filled with bouncy rides and slides.

A Great american day!

Mary Israel (video above) started the day with a beautiful rendition of our National Anthem. 

Marty Andresen addressed the crowd and sang "Take Me Out To The Ball Game," per Rockaway Little League tradition. John Duggan threw out the ceremonial first pitch on behalf of himself and Matt Piccione. Everyone at Little League recognized the enormous effort and dedication these gentlemen invest to make our fields the finest in the City. Virginia Donahue and her committee did a tremendous job organizing the raffles for more than two dozen gift baskets. This year, we did our own cooking, thanks to the generous food donations by multiple sponsors and the grill work of Rob Rose and his team. Also new this year was a contribution by young men from the Scholars Academy baseball team. They ran mini-clinics on Field 5, helping our younger players learn more about the finer points of defense.  And, of course, there were baseball and softball games:
