SARATOGA SPRINGS — Saratoga Springs Little League (SSLL) held their opening ceremonies this past Saturday, April 24. 

The opening event this year was split into three different ceremonies to avoid crowds and allow for social distancing. At each ceremony, Abby DeGregory, daughter of board member Tim DeGregory, and Nora Taliaferro sang the national anthem. Caden Cameron, who is in his first year in the Majors Division, read the Little League Pledge for each ceremony as well. 

Jackets were handed out to the 12-year-old boys who will be transitioning out of Little League after this season. The jackets are personalized with each kid’s name, and were generously donated by Mrs. Fitzpatrick. Mrs. Fitzpatrick, who was in attendance, is the wife of a late sponsor of many years. There will still be a Fitzpatrick’s team this year, as there is every year. 

The SSLL has 6 different divisions/levels of play from ages 4 to 13 years old, including a Challenger Division for individuals with disabilities. 

Monica Isenovski, Marketing and PR Manager for the SSLL, says that everything the league does is made possible by the board members and volunteers, some who don’t even have children in the program anymore. Such as SSLL President, Derrick LeGall, who has been volunteering for approximately 20 years. 

“Many of them don’t even have children in the league anymore, but they continue to devote their time because of the wonderful experinces their families have had,” said Isenovski. “And, they wish to continue that for the next generation of little leaguers.”
