GREEN BROOK, NJ – The Green Brook Little League (GBLL) had its opening day parade and ceremony on April 18, 2015. Despite one of the worst winters in a generation, the baseball gods made sure there was plenty of sunshine and warm for the perfect opening day.

“This is one of the rites of spring, the Green Brook Little League Parade,” said Green Brook Committeeman Patrick Boccio. “Opening Day at the Green Brook Little League is just a great day and community event.”

The day certainly was great with temperatures near 80 degrees, the GBLL teams were all decked out sporting both their uniforms and homemade banners.  “This is probably the best weather day of the year period, and to have it be Green Brook Little League’s opening day just makes it that much special,” said Green Brook Little League President Dave Kusch.

After the parade, the Irene E Feldkirchner Elementary School 4th grade singers opened the ceremonies on the baseball diamond with the perfect rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner:

“Baseball is part of America, and it’s a part of Green Brook,” said Green Brook Committeeman Ken Herrmann.

Committeeman and former Mayor Patrick Boccio threw out the ceremonial first pitch. After the first pitch, President Kusch thanked all of the volunteers, parents, coaches and players for all of their help.

Kusch mentioned baseball is a game that teaches a number of things, and it requires three items to be successful. According to Kusch 1st baseball requires a person to be “brave” to play and get in the batters’ box, 2nd  a player needs to be smart and know what to do, how many strikes there are and where to throw the ball, and 3rd is dedication and hard-work to improve as a player.

“Let’s have some fun,” said Kusch when ending his comments, and fun in the sun is exactly what Green Brook Little League had this opening day.
