Celebrating Opening Day for Alexandria Little League

Twenty-five teams took the field at Simpson Field for the annual Alexandria Little League opening day ceremony Saturday morning, April 14. League president Bill Gehrig introduced the teams as they paraded onto the field. Majors commissioner Rusty Rhodes and his two sons led the players in reciting the Little League Pledge. “I trust in God, I love my country, and will respect its laws, I will play fair, and strive to win, but win or lose, I will always do my best.” Local sponsors Harris Teeter, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Episcopal High School were recognized. Harris Teeter has been a financial supporter of the league for a number of years. Dick’s Sporting Goods offered discounts on baseball merchandise before the start of the season and donated scorebooks, equipment bags and two buckets of practice balls for every team. Episcopal High School allowed the league to use the Flippen Field House for try-outs earlier this year. League president Bill Gehrig presented Alexandria director of Sports Field and Courts Coordinator for the City Recreation, Parks and Cultural Activities Mac Slover and chair of the Miracle League Fundraising Committee Donnie Simpson with a $5,000 check from the league for Alexandria’s Miracle Field at the Lee Center. Opening Day for the Miracle League is Saturday, April 21 at 1 p.m. at the Nannie J. Lee Center. Marine Corps Brigadier General Richard L. Simcock II was the opening day speaker and afterwards threw in the first pitch.
