Opening Day for North Camden Little League

Dozens of Camden kids will likely not be sleeping tonight.

After months of anticipation, the North Camden Little League will host its “Opening Day” Saturday. About 225 boys and girls, ages 5 to 16, will be infiltrating Pyne Poynt Park in North Camden to play ball.

Opening Day ceremonies will begin at noon in  front of City Hall. The crowd will then parade up to Pyne Point Park, where local Brazilian band Phillybloco will perform.

The first pitch of the season will be thrown by the Mayor Dana L. Redd and the games will begin, kicking off the summer league season. About 50 coaches will be volunteering with the little league this summer.  

For further information, as well as volunteer opportunities, call NCLL president Bryan Morton, at 609-553-3788 or e-mail him at communitybuild@live.com
