This Week in Lakewood Little League – March 1, 2019
Dear Lakewood Little League Families:
Opening Day Ceremony is TOMORROW, Saturday, March 2 – Rain or Shine!
We are so excited for another Lakewood Little League Opening Day, and the start of our Spring Season! Here is some important info for tomorrow:
Opening Ceremonies will start at 10:00am, rain or shine. Teams should line up at 9:30am against the back fence of the Middle Field at Rynerson Park. We will have EZUps on the field to protect your children from the rain if needed.
Please make sure your children are dressed warmly, due to the expected rainfall. Players only need to wear their jerseys and caps. Any warm bottoms/pants are okay. NO BASEBALL CLEATS FOR THE CEREMONY. We do not want to tear up the field unnecessarily. Please bring your player’s baseball pants and cleats for games later during the day if needed (weather/field conditions permitting).
Please leave your house early!!! The Lakewood Fun Run is tomorrow morning, so there will be some street closures all around Lakewood. Parking is always limited at Rynerson Park and there is ongoing construction at the park.
After the ceremony, we will be having the In-N-Out Food Truck for lunch. Players will be given their wristbands as they are lining up for the ceremony. We will have a large tent to provide rain coverage if needed. Yes, burgers will be served in the rain. In-N-Out is prepared to serve everyone who purchased an advance ticket.
Families are encouraged to bring chairs, blankets, umbrellas, EZ ups, drinks, and snacks - anything else that you will need for the day.
Games may be altered or canceled due to safety and field conditions.
Coach Pitch players – please check with your managers at 7 am to ensure your 8 am game was not rained out.
Snack Shack Sign Up: It is now time to sign up for your two Snack Shack shifts. We now have online sign ups via Sign Up Genius. Sign up now for the best choices that fit your schedule.

Lakewood Little League Day at Angel Stadium: We will be returning to Angel Stadium for Little League Day on Sunday, April 7. Our players will participate in the Little League parade on the field at 11:30 am and then enjoy the afternoon game. Advance tickets are available for $16 per ticket.
