Itís opening day in Delmar
By Brian Cordrey
Even though Saturday was damp, foggy and cool, it didnít keep the fans from coming out to support their Little League teams. The day began with each team being featured on floats that formed a huge parade through the streets of Delmar. A favorite Delmar Fire Department fire engine carried the first Little League team and was followed by the Delmar High School Band. There are over 500 Delmar youth involved in the Little League program, ranging in age from 5 through 16. About 20 corporate sponsors in the Delmar area provide financial support needed for each team. The parade ended at the Little League Ball Park where parents, friends, fans and ball players gathered for the opening day ceremony. Greg Mariner, president of the Delmar Little League, led those gathered in the National Anthem and an opening prayer. He thanked corporate sponsors of each team and parents and volunteer coaches for their help and support. Little League members and players recited the Little League pledge. Then it was time to play ball.
