Opening Day is Here!
For almost 60 years, Generations of Bristol youths have been excited for Spring because it means it's time for Baseball at Edgewood. It's time for Opening day is this Saturday, April 28th, so we figured we'd drop you a note with all of the details you need to know.
Opening Day Ceremony Details
Players are to arrive at the Rear Parking Lot of St. Paul's High School in uniform to line up for the parade at 8:30 a.m. this Saturday. The Parade of Players to Breen Field will start promptly at 8:50 a.m. Once players have been dropped off with their teams, parents and spectators can make their way to the Little League complex to great them as they arrive onto Breen Field for the ceremonies. The Snack Shack will be serving breakfast so make sure you bring some extra cash. In addition to the Opening Ceremony there will be other fun planned activities like inflatables and special guests. Bring the whole family, you're sure to gave a good time.
Directly following the Opening Ceremonies we will be having our Picture Day. Due to the rescheduling of some games, the Team Photo Schedules have changed. Here is a link to the new Photo Schedules: 2018 Team Photo Schedules
Opening Day Game Schedules
We have rescheduled some games on Opening Day to accommodate all of the festivities. Not all teams are playing games on opening day. The best way to be sure about game schedules is to make sure you visit the website at the following link: 2018 Team Game Schedules
We will be performing Bat Checks during the Opening Day Ceremonies in front of the press box area at Breen. All bats used at Edgewood Little League MUST be inspected and have an Edgewood sticker applied. In order to comply with the new USA Baseball Bat Standards we need to ensure that bats meet the criteria by performing an inspection on each and every bat from T-Ball to Seniors. If your bat hasn't been inspected yet, bring it with you.

Pastries and cookies make a great treat to share with your team or enjoy in the stands while watching your favorite Edgewood teams! Our spring Fundraiser ends on opening day.
