RARITAN, NJ - The Raritan Recreation Department revived its baseball opening day ceremonies Saturday, celebrating the start of the new season.

Baseball players from preschool to eighth grade paraded down the streets of Raritan from Borough Hall on First Street to the baseball fields on Sherman Avenue.

At the fields, players took part in a number of baseball-related games for prizes.

In addition, opening day served to honor former recreation director Rich Bartolucci, as he threw out the first pitch of the season. Bartolucci's name was also added to a stone at the fields that honors those who have made a difference to the Raritan Recreation Department.
