St. Helena Little League to celebrate first opening day celebration in 2 years

The St. Helena Little League (SHLL) will enjoy the first Opening Day celebration in two years this month, on March 12th, 2022. After two seasons of shifting covid restrictions, our town’s baseball players (and their friends and family) finally get to have some fun!

“We are actually laying the new sod in the fields,” reports Anna Marie Longo, an SHLL Board Member and Player Agent. “Last year it was great to have a season, but we still weren’t able to gather in crowds. It’s so special to bring everyone back together.” 

While the city owns the two fields at Crane Park, the League leases and manages them for the baseball season. League President Jeff Blum has been a driving force behind this year’s field improvements, and has launched a capital campaign that included plans for restoring the fields via a donation to the city. 

Every year, about two hundred kids play baseball or softball with the League. Opening Day ceremonies include special guests, flag raising, singing of the national anthem, visits from the fire department, and sometimes even a flyover. “It’s a real community event,” Anna Marie adds, “and we’re very excited.” 

Congratulations to the St. Helena Little League and all of our players for reaching this milestone moment.
