The pint-sized players will be joined by their friends, families, local community leaders and elected officials. Everyone will then gather at the Prospect Park Bandshell for the ceremonial first pitch to start another great season of baseball and softball at the seven fields in Prospect Park’s Long Meadow and the six fields at the Parade Ground. 

The Little League Parade gets underway at 10 a.m. The parade kicks-off at 7th Avenue and 2nd Street, proceeds along 7th Avenue to 9th Street and then turns up 9th Street to head into the Park and ends at the Bandshell. The Opening Day Ceremony and first pitch at the Bandshell will begin at approximately 10:45 a.m.
