MAHOPAC, N.Y.— Last month, the Mahopac Baseball/Softball Association hosted Opening Day at McDonough and Sycamore parks for the second consecutive year.

More than 400 players and coaches were treated to a box lunch of hamburgers and hot dogs courtesy of the baseball/softball program. The concession was managed by the 12U baseball program, which this year will play in a national tournament in Cooperstown.

The Rockland Boulders mascot, Boulder Bird, was on hand for a few pictures and added to the smiles of the young players.

The event was made possible by the countless volunteers of the association, plus local sponsors that included Stop & Shop, Dick’s Sporting Goods and Modell’s. Mahopac Transportation provided shuttle buses and volunteer drivers. The Mahopac Soccer Association offered exclusive use of McDonough Park for the day.
