Opening Day 2022 Announced!

We are pleased to announce the return of our opening day parade with Norfolk Softball!  Due to the COVID pandemic, we have not held our regular parade for the last few years, but are happy to be bringing back this celebrated tradition, particularly since Norfolk Baseball will be celebrating its 65th anniversary this year.

The parade will be held on Saturday, April 30th.  Kids will gather at the H. Olive Day school at around 10:45am in the parking lot in their uniforms.  If coaches have not yet had a chance to distribute them, they will have them at this point for the kids.  The march then begins toward Freeman Kennedy at approximately 11:00am (see drop off information and parade route map below).  Once the kids arrive, they will gather in the outfield of the AAA field where the Norfolk Board will say a few words to ceremonially kick off the season.  Food and entertainment will then be on hand for families as they enjoy the rest of their day and games begin!

Our opening day can always use the assistance of parents willing to help chip in with concessions.  If you are willing to jump in and help with anything related to opening day activities, we could absolutely use your help!  We currently need a few folks to work slots selling waters and other drinks, as well as supervising the little kids in the bounce houses.  Sign up genius is located here.
