RANDOLPH, NJ- The Randolph Little League Parade marched its way around Heistein Park on Saturday, Apr. 22, as the annual spring ceremony helped kick off the 2017 season.

The tradition is rich with history; for the over 76 years that Little League International has been in existence, boys and girls around the world have been taking part in the spring ritual. ( See Video Slide Show at end of story )

A Retro-Firetruck along with other Ironia Firehouse trucks led the procession, along with a large group of Randolph high school marching band members who volunteered their Saturday morning to contribute to the festivities.

The teams exited Heistein Park onto Doby road, took a left on South road, and re-entered the park on the other side, gathering on the grass in front of the pavillion.

After the National Anthem was sung by Susan Boyko, League President Dave Tamres welcomed the players and families, and thanked Russ Newman and Jeanne Montamoreno of the Parks and Recreation department for all their hard work getting the fields ready.

Mayor Christine Carey threw out the ceremonial first pitch to three players, James Kratochvil of the Major League Mets, Simon Clement of the Minor League Muckdogs, and Cooper Tighe of the AAA Vultures.

Carey addressed the crowd, wishing the kids success, good sportsmanship, and “no injuries.”

Marc Laqui, manager of the Pirates, and his son Brendan read aloud the player and coaches’ pledge for good sportsmanship.

To wrap up the ceremony, the U10 West and U12 West All Star teams presented their championship banners from the 2016 summer season.
