Opening Day is coming, Opening Day is coming! We're so excited that the season is beginning and we will be celebrating not only the 75th Anniversary of Little League, but the 55th Anniversary of Claremont American Little League. We have so much planned for your enjoyment. There will be fun for all ages. There will be baseball, fun, food, activities, local organizations, sponsors/vendors and opportunities to win prizes and so much more. Opening day will be Saturday, March 8th.
If you haven't heard, the Kiwanis are hosting our 2nd Annual Pancake Breakfast. Tickets are only $5 a person and I suggest you buy them ahead of time. You can do this either through your Team Parent or at Picture Day on Saturday, February 22nd. This was a great success last year and we hope we can continue the tradition. You will receive pancakes, sausage and drink for the price. The Kiwanis will donate the proceeds back to our league. What a great and yummy way to support CLL.
There will be an outdoor Party Exteme Laser Tag and Stone Rolling Mobile Video Gaming Truck for all ages (a nominal fee applies) to enjoy during the day. The Claremont CERT and PD will be there along with community group Keeping the Good in the Neighborhood. We love when our community comes together and supports each other.
You will have the opportunity to win some fantastic gift baskets and other items with our opportunity drawings and silent auction.
We have special guest appearances planned for the day as well. Can you guess who might be there?

Typically, there are Little League rule changes every year but this year, there's a HUGE change in residency requirements. According to Little League International, if a child goes to school that's inside the league boundaries, that satisfies the residency requirement. As usual, Little League International defines what documents are required. If you think this might affect you, please read the information from the following link carefully:

As the district all-star season winds down, here's a great article from the Los Angeles times showing one of the many reasons why we do what we do. Enjoy
