M-A Little League Celebrates Opening Day 2014!
Menlo-Atherton Little League celebrated a wonderful Opening Day to the 2014 Spring Baseball Season. The celebration kicked off with a beautiful rendition of the National Anthem, sung by Majors Lutticken's own Tiana Lewis. M-ALL President Rich Ferrick then welcomed the assembled crowd of almost 1000 players and parents by introducing city officials from Menlo Park and Atherton. Each of our 50 "graduating" twelve year olds and their parent coaches were given a plaque honoring their service to the league. Mike Gardner specially thanked the City of Atherton for supporting the Holbrook Palmer ballpark renovation project and our visiting city officials then each threw out the ceremonial "first pitch". M-ALL board member and coach Bob Baxter was cited for receiving the national PCA Double Goal® Coach Award, and his son Nate then read the Little League Pledge. The ceremony concluded with the M-ALL traditional "gauntlet run" welcoming our TBall and Coach-Pitch players into the league. What a great way to open the season!
Our players, coaches and parents were then treated to the first game of the season, pitting 2013 Majors Championship winner Left Bank against runner up Old Pro. Left Bank came out on top 8-0 in a spirited, well played game. A full suite of games in all of our divisions - TBall thru Majors - then followed. It was a beautiful day to play baseball - thanks to Rich and the rest of the M-ALL board for making it happen!
