WBSA is very pleased to announce that the Spring 2015 Opening Day parade will take place on Saturday, April 25th, with a start time of 9 a.m.
The parade route, lead by a Whitman Police Department and Whitman Fire Department escort, will begin at the Holy Ghost Parish on School Street, make its way down Washington Street and turn on to Essex Street. All players will file into the Town Park ball field for the kick off ceremony
We ask that all coaches and players report to the Holy Ghost Parish parking lot no later than 8:30. Our softball teams, youngest to oldest, will lead the parade, followed by the baseball teams, youngest to oldest.
At this time, WBSA will also be accepting concession drink donations and team Whitman Food Pantry donation bags. Trucks will be set up in the parking lot, closest to School Street, to accept the donations.
We are in the process of wrapping up drafts and building team rosters for the season. The coaches will be contacting players no later than April 17th.
We are very excited to finally be kicking off the spring season after such a tough winter. We look forward to a fun, positive and exciting season with your players and your family.
If you have questions about the parade or concession and/or team Whitman Food Pantry donations, please speak to your coach or your level director.
