BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - It was cloudy, cold and windy Saturday, April 7, as the traditional PAL Opening Day Parade for baseball, softball and lacrosse began.

Team members, coaches and family members left from Fire Department Headquarters behind Berkeley Heights Fire Rescue truck, Squad 2 and Fire and Police department SUVs. They turned right at Snyder and began the walk to Snyder Avenue Park.

Those parents who lined the road to see their children marching, then joined the parade and it seemed like only a few minutes passed before the crowds were filing into the field.

Chris Consoli and his daughter Danielle provided music for the group. 

After introductions, Baseball Commissioner Ryan Samuelson welcomed everyone to the opening day. Sneha Sishadri, a seventh grade student at Columbia Middle School sang the National Anthem.

Police Chief John DiPasquale tossed out the first pitch and the season was officially open. Tee-Ball games began immediately on Snyder Avenue Field.

PAL volunteers, including Mayor Robert Woodruff cooked up almost 500 hotdogs, donated by Delicious Heights, which disappeared in a matter of minutes. 

This is the first year PAL has sponsored boys lacrosse teams.
