SOUTH ORANGE, NJ - The Maplewood-South Orange Softball and South Orange-Maplewood Baseball leagues held their opening day parade and ceremony on Saturday, April 30.

The parade continued from 3rd Street to Sloan Street, turning left on South Orange Avenue, and then right after the Village Service Station, continuing along the river. The parade ended at Cameron Field, where the Opening Day Ceremony then took place.
