Youth baseball begins Saturday

Baseball season will begin this weekend with festivities planned in Highlands and Crosby.

HIGHLANDS — On Friday night, the annual Highlands Little League Pageant will be held at the Highlands Junior School Auditorium at 6:30 p.m.

For the past couple of months each of the Little League teams have held fundraisers. At the pageant, the teams will be represented by a queen.

The team that raised the most money will have their queen named Highlands Little League Queen for 2010. That girl will throw out the first pitch in Saturday’s Opening Day Ceremony. The pageant will also feature an optional talent contest.

On Saturday floats representing the Highlands Little League and Highlands Sports Association will make their way south on Main Street at 9 a.m. in a parade.

Opening Day will continue at the Little League fields after the parade with games and food.

CROSBY — The Crosby Sports Association season opening parade will kick off at 9 a.m. on Saturday.

Line up will begin for floats at 7:30 am in the Crosby High School parking lot. Following the parade there will be moonwalks, games, barbeque and lots of fun for all at the Main Sports Complex next to the Crosby Community Center and library on Hare Road.

Team and individual pictures will begin at 12 p.m. at the main sports complex.
